McCullough Drive extension and streetscape
Project phase

 Upcoming events




 Project updates

This project has two components​:​

McCullough Drive extension - Originating from the Northeast Corridor Infrastructure Program (NECI) planning effort, this project proposes to provide a new street connection by extending McCullough Drive from North Tryon Street to the existing dead end at Ken Hoffman Drive. The conceptual cross section includes two travel lanes, planting strips, curb & gutter and sidewalk.  

McCullough Drive streetscape - ​Also originated from the NECI planning effort, this project will improve pedestrian and bicycle mobility between North Tryon Street and W.T. Harris Boulevard. The project as proposed would provide bike lanes and fill in sidewalk gaps from North Tryon Street to W.T. Harris Boulevard.​​

  • ​To provide pedestrian and vehicular connectivity from the Grande Promenade II development at Ken Hoffman Drive and from the existing hotels along this corridor to the planned Blue Line Extension McCullough Station

  • The extension of McCullough Drive will also provide an alternate connection between W.T. Harris Boulevard and North Tryon Street

  • To promote economic development by providing infrastructure to support and encourage transit supportive development near the McCullough Street Station

  • To improve pedestrian and bicycle mobility between North Tryon Street and W.T. Harris Boulevard​

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​
