 Project updates

In November 2014, voters approved $20 million for the Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program (CNIP). The Eastway Drive streetscape & pedestrian improvement study was selected as one of the projects to move forward under the Central/Albemarle/Shamrock CNIP

The study will identify​ and refine specific opportunities/locations to improve Eastway Drive to make it more pedestrian-friendly. These improvements might include providing better sidewalks, landscaping and/or crossing opportunities at various locations, particularly in areas with concentrations of pedestrians and commercial activity or at locations that would connect a broader bicycle/pedestrian network. The study will also consider ways to improve the east-west bicycle and pedestrian connections across the Eastway corridor between the future Briar Creek Greenway/Merry Oaks Neighborhood and Kilborne Park.​​

  • ​To maintain, stabilize and revitalize the neighborhood through comprehensive infrastructure improvements

  • To strengthen the neighborhood and surrounding community​

​The project team hosted walking tours of different sections of the Eastway Drive corridor on April 25 and 27 and May 2 and 4, 2017. A public meeting also took place on May 18, 2017 at Garinger High School, followed by an online meeting. View the public input summary.

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​
