North Pedestrian and Bicycle Boulevard - Independence AreaNoIndependence ped/bike7/22/2021General ServicesNorth Pedestrian and Bicycle Boulevard - Independence Area

Early in the city's work on the North and South Pedestrian/Bicycle Boulevard projects in the Independence area, we identified that, to provide for the safety of pedestrian and bicyclists, signalized crossings would be needed at the intersections of Wendover Road and June Drive and Albemarle Road and Pierson Drive. City staff worked extensively with the North Carolina Department of Transportation to explore options for providing these crossings. Ultimately, due to the volume and speed of traffic on Wendover Road and Albemarle Road, we were unable to identify a crossing design the would function safely at all times. That being the case, the project team determined that these projects cannot be implemented as conceived, and subsequently explored other approaches for accomplishing the projects' goals.

The project team sought to identify the most impactful way to allocate the projects' dollars and intent. With input from CDOT and General Services leadership, city staff studied recent and active investments in the Independence Boulevard Corridor, including all current bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and possible future projects. With the goal of enhancing overall mobility and connectivity, a new project was identified: The Monroe Road Multi-Use Path. The project will construct an 8- to 12-foot-wide multi-use path along the north side of Monroe Road between Eaton Road and McMullen Way. The Monroe Road Multi-Use Path will connect to the following projects that also include multi-use paths along other segments of Monroe Road: 

The connectivity created by the Monroe Road Multi-Use Path will result in more than two miles of continuous, high-quality, dedicated bicycle and pedestrian facilities along the Monroe Road Corridor.

Elevated Water Storage Tanks ProjectYes7/26/2021WaterElevated Water Storage Tanks Project

​Charlotte Water is conducting preliminary engineering work in the Woodlawn area as part of a larger Elevated Water Storage Tanks Project that will optimize the function and resiliency of the water distribution system in our growing community. Beginning in late June, subcontractors for Charlotte Water will be surveying and conducting fieldwork between Peachtree Drive and the ramp to I-77 South from Woodlawn Road. In addition to personnel, customers could see minor clearing activities in the area, survey stakes/flags, paint markings on the ground, and machinery used for geotechnical borings. These borings involve drilling a hole roughly 4 inches in diameter, and upward of 30 feet deep, to determine the presence of rock in the area. In areas inaccessible for the drill rig, the hand auger method will be used. This work is expected to take up to 6 weeks to complete. More information can be found in the Woodlawn Field Work June 2021 mailer update.
