​​Arterial corridor study: West Boulevard  

Project information

The West Boulevard Corridor Study is one of three multimodal planning studies to enhance pedestrian and bicycle travel on portions of arterials (thoroughfares) in Charlotte. Each study will evaluate existing conditions, identify deficiencies, and make recommendations to improve the safety and ease of walking and biking along and across busy streets.

The primary funding source for these studies is a Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) planning grant that provides 80% federal funds, in the amount of $200,000, and a required 20% local match, in the amount of $50,000.

West Boulevard Corridor Study Area


The West Boulevard Corridor Study will review and assess conditions for pedestrians, bicycles and drivers between Camden Road and Billy Graham Parkway.  

Upcoming public involvement opportunities

There are several ways to get involved! Public meetings will be held periodically throughout the project to provide updates and present recommendations to the community.

The City of Charlotte hosted three walking tours as part of the West Boulevard Corridor Study. The tours focused primarily on pedestrian mobility on three segments of the corridor. They provided the approximately 40 participants with an opportunity to converse directly with City staff about their experiences and challenges traveling along this corridor. Input collected during the walking tours is being used to help prioritize improvements along the corridor. The walking tour survey summary data will be made available in Project Documents section to the right (at the bottom on mobile devices) soon.
