This project originated from the Northeast Corridor Infrastructure Program (NECI) planning effort. The project limits are from North Tryon Street to Austin Drive.
This project will provide a new street connection by extending Orr Road from North Tryon Street to Dawn Circle and to Austin Drive. The conceptual cross section includes two travel lanes, bike lanes, curb & gutter, sidewalk & planting strip and street trees. The project will replace left turn access to and from North Tryon Street that will be lost when the Blue Line Extension (BLE) project eliminates left turns at Austin Drive. Also, extending Orr Road adds another access point into the southern part of the Hidden Valley neighborhood, which helps alleviate potential congestion at Arrowhead Road.
