The City of Charlotte is building a visionary multi-use trail that will connect Pineville to Cabarrus County incorporating popular trail segments like Little Sugar Creek Greenway and the upcoming northeast Light Rail Trail as part of the broader Carolina Thread Trail 16-county network. People will be able to more easily navigate across our fair city and commute to work via the Cross Charlotte Trail, affectionately named XCLT.

The City issued an RFP and selected Yellow Duck Marketing to design a logo for XCLT for usage in materials, website and of course, trail markers. A process that also engaged a broad group of stakeholders and the public to vote on CDOT’s favorite two variations was fun and dynamic.
