Brevard Street improvements


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Part of the Community Investment Plan​​​

Project phase


 Project updates

​This transportation project will make improvements along Brevard Street from Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd to Trade Street. Brevard Street will be converted to a two-way street and will include wide sidewalks, 8-foot pavers with tree wells, retaining walls, curb & gutter, parallel parking and pedestrian lights.

  • To create a distinct, diverse and attractive vision for the study area that reflects and highlights the "Memorable Streets - Brevard Street Connectivity Study."

  • To create an active pedestrian-friendly street by providing wider sidewalks, varied architecture at the street, areas for outdoor dining and plazas/open spaces.

  • To utilize existing parking supply by identifying and using existing parking as catalyst for development and providing parallel parking along Brevard Street.

  • To promote connectivity and linkages by providing safe and efficient pedestrian routs to Brevard Street within the Center City.

With direction from Charlotte City Council, project teams seek input from the community in order to build better projects and provide better services. Often, this input comes from the public involvement process used when building capital projects. Neighborhood public meetings are conducted by project teams and consultants in order to solicit ideas from nearby businesses and residents affected by the project and identify their concerns. Upcoming meetings will be posted on this page, on the Citywide Projects Portal and on the Citywide events calendar.

Funding to come from proposed public improvement bonds as part of the Community Investment Plan

​​​​​​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​
