The greenway is flooded from a recent rainfall. Water that piled up in Raleigh is making its way downstream along the Neuse River.

The trail is underwater at the Riverwalk near Covered Bridge Road.

Town officials are not aware of any damage to homes or road closures. Once the water recedes, Public Works crews will have to clear debris off the greenway before it reopens.

Water levels are not expected to drop below flood stage until Thursday morning around 1 a.m.
