The Charlotte Department of Transportation's key goal is... Connecting Charlotte.
CDOT is committed to enhancing the driving, bicycling and walking experience through planning, operating and maintaining the City's transportation choices for residents and visitors. An important objective is to sustain, maintain and enhance the City's transportation infrastructure.
The Plaza Separated Bicycle Lane
Demonstration Project - May 7 - 14
The Charlotte Department of Transportation will
be implementing a separated bicycle lane demonstration project on The Plaza,
between Central Avenue and Belvedere Avenue. The CDOT demonstration project will open May 7 as a
connection into the Open Streets 704 event, and be in place until May
14. By converting the outside travel lanes in both directions to
one-way separated bicycle lanes, the project’s goal is to provide a safe and
comfortable bicycle facility on The Plaza while calming traffic through the
historic district of Plaza-Midwood.
Notice for Residents: CDOT has coordinated with Solid Waste Services to
accommodate for refuse collection on Monday, May 8. Residents along The
Plaza are instructed to place their trash and recycling receptacles on the
buffer zone at the edge of the bicycle lane.
