Ashley Road sidewalk

​​​​​​​​​​​​

Sidewalk and Pedestrian Safety Program

Project phase

 

 Project updates

​This project will construct sidewalk along the east side of Ashley Road from Greenland Avenue to Allegheny Road. The scope for this project will include an 8-foot planting strip and 6-foot sidewalk, along with driveway improvements, wheelchair ramps and minor curb adjustments to eliminate pinch points. Asphalt resurfacing, including pavement markings​ for bike lanes within these limits, will be conducted by Charlotte Department of Transportation street maintenance once construction is complete.

​In accordance with Transportation Action Plan, the City prioritizes sidewalk projects based on the City's adopted sidewalk retrofit policy as adopted by City Council. This project is a high-priority request along a thoroughfare and connects multiple land uses, provides access to business and transit and extends the pedestrian network.

​​During the planning phase, the project team will host public meetings to get feedback from nearby residents and businesses. Details of meetings will be posted on this page and on the Citywide event calendar and postcards will be mailed to citizens along this corridor.

​​​To be determined

​​​​​​The Community Investment Plan approved by City Council in 2013 calls for voters to consider approval of funding for a number of infrastructure programs. Voters approved bond financing in 2014 and 2016 and will vote on further bond financing in 2018 and 2020. For this project, if voters approve funding, City staff engages the community to determine the details of what will ultimately be built. Once these details are known, the cost of the project is estimated and published. Learn more about the Community Investment Plan at http://charlottefuture.com​
