 Project updates

This project originated from the Northeast Corridor Infrastructure Program (NECI) planning effort. The project proposes to provide improved pedestrian and bicycle connectivity along Sugar Creek Road in support of the LYNX Blue Line Sugar Creek Station and the North Carolina DOT Bridge Project. Bike lanes, sidewalk and street trees are proposed along Sugar Creek Road from Greensboro Street to North Tryon Street and from Northmore Street to The Plaza.

  • ​To improve access to the LYNX Blue Line by improving pedestrian and bicycle facilities near the Sugar Creek Station

  • To promote economic development by providing infr​astructure to support and encourage transit-supportive development near the Sugar Creek Street Station

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​
