High Priority Property Acquisition Tract: Lyle Creek @ Bunker Hill Covered Bridge

Catawba County Historical Association

This project will acquire and permanently protect a 27.5 acre tract of land along a degraded section of Lyle Creek, which feeds into Lake Norman.

Counties Impacted:

  • Catawba
  • Iredell
  • Lincoln
  • Mecklenburg

Through the permanent protection of a key parcel of land, sedimentation will be reduced into Lyle Creek which feeds the Catawba River/Lake Norman. The acquisition of this property will allow for the extension of the Carolina Thread Trail which integrates supportively with other Duke Energy Relicensing recreation projects in the area."
