Arterial corridor study: West Boulevard
The City of Charlotte plans to conduct several multimodal planning studies to enhance pedestrian and bicycle travel on portions of arterials (thoroughfares) in Charlotte. The studies 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.
West Boulevard corridor study walking tours - April 18 - 20
The City of Charlotte is hosting three walking tours as part of the West Boulevard Corridor Study. Charlotte City Council and the public are invited to participate in these guided walking tours. The tours will focus primarily on pedestrian mobility on three segments of the corridor. They will also provide residents with an opportunity to converse directly with City staff about their experiences and challenges traveling along this corridor.
The schedule for the walking tours is below. Each tour is roughly ½-mile-long (one way), and will take about an hour to complete. Tours begin at 6 p.m. Residents should arrive 15-20 minutes early to sign-in. Input collected during the walking tours will be used to help prioritize improvements along the corridor.
Please note: The walking tours will occur rain or shine.
