​This project will replace a bridge on Morris Field Drive that spans the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks. The bridge, which has reached the end of its functional life, will be replaced with a structure that will handle cars as well as pedestrians. The design includes bike lanes, sidewalks and wider lanes. ​

  • ​​​​To construct a bridge that accommodates multiple modes of transportation
  • To provide bike lanes and sidewalks while continuing the level of service provided along the rest of the roadway
  • To provide wider lanes or buffers to allow more separation between motorists and nonmotorists/pedestrians

​​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.
