This project will include a two-lane roadway, bicycle lanes, planting strips, sidewalks and street lights on 16th Street between North Tryon Street and Parkwood Avenue. The City is also working in coordination with the private developer for Optimist Hall to implement portions of the project, including the realignment of 16th Street from Parkwood Avenue to LYNX Blue Line.
Benefits identified from these potential improvements:
This project is being coordinated with the Charlotte Water's Belmont and Optimist Park wastewater pipe replacement project and Storm Water Services' Parkwood Phase 2 storm drainage improvements project. Combining these projects will be more convenient for residents, decreasing the length of time needed to close 16th Street during construction as well as be more cost efficient.
