Northeast Corridor Infrastructure Program
This project will extend the Dave McKinney Avenue and create
the opportunity for future development to provide parallel connectivity to
Tryon Street from West Rocky River Road North to Carolyn Lane. Preliminary design
will extend Dave McKinney Avenue from Rocky River Road West by 500 feet to the end of
the school parking lot. In addition, the project team will complete a rough line/grade and
acquire a right of way/permanent slope easement for the entire 850 feet of roadway needed
to tie in to the Caldwell property. Final design and construction of the full
850 feet of roadway depends on the rezoning of the Caldwell parcel.
To improve pedestrian, bicycle and motorist access to the LYNX Blue Line
To make improvements for all modes of transportation – pedestrian, bicycle, vehicle, and transit
To promote economic development by providing infrastructure to support and encourage transit supportive development
As we move through the design phase, the public
will be updated through the project webpage, electronic communications and postcards. Coordination between
the City of Charlotte, Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools and potential developers is underway.
Please note this is the funding amount and includes all costs associated with the project such as planning and design, acquiring the right of way, utility relocation, consultant fees, construction, signalization, permits and landscaping.
