 Project updates

​This project originated from the Northeast Corridor Infrastructure (NECI) program planning effort. The project proposed to provide streetscape improvements from Canterwood Drive to North Tryon Street. The conceptual cross-section includes two travel lanes, a center turning lane, sidewalk, a planting strip and street trees.

  • To improve access to North Tryon Street and the future Tom Hunter Road light rail station

  • To provide wider sidewalks, pedestrian refuge, bike lanes and beautification with wider planting strips, decorative lighting and street trees.

  • To improve all modes of tran​sportation: pedestrian, bicycle, vehicular and mass transit

  • To improve access to the Hidden Valley neighborhood

  • To provide infrastructure that supports and encourages economic development​

Community meetings were held on the following dates to get public input on the design and answer questions.

  • October 13, 2016 at New Hampton Presbyterian Church (LYNX Blue Line Extension meeting)

  • October 12, 2016 at the Charlotte Main Library (LYNX Blue Line Extension meeting)

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​
