Germantown Celebrates Opening Of Wolf River Boulevard Final Stretch

Germantown is celebrating tonight. The final stretch of Wolf River Boulevard is open to drivers.
MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) - Germantown is celebrating tonight. The final stretch of Wolf River Boulevard is open to drivers.

The city held a ribbon cutting Tuesday morning.

The roadway features bike paths as well as a pedestrian underpass.

It was constructed in an environmentally sensitive wetland ecosystem.

The city teamed with Audubon International to ensure responsible design and construction.

This section of Wolf River Boulevard minimizes runoff pollution to the nearby Wolf River and allows animals to live in harmony with the roadway.

“It's the first one in the world very special place you don't normally think of a roadway being a special place but it really has created a sense of place for both modes of transportation and automobiles. Also for pedestrians and bicyclists,” Germantown alderman Forrest Owens said

The two mile segment represents the final Germantown leg of Wolf River Boulevard.

The roadway will allow drivers to travel uninterrupted from the I-240 and Walnut Grove area to Eastern Shelby County.
