 Project updates

​The Matheson Avenue Bridge streetscape project is the first of several projects scheduled in the North End Applied Innovation Corridor. This project will incorporate pedestrian, bicycle and aesthetic improvements on Matheson Avenue from North Tryon Street to Jordan Place, providing improved connections between North Tryon Street and the LYNX Blue Line, the Cross Charlotte Trail​ and the popular NoDa area.


​This project will include a westbound one-way bicycle path along the north side of Matheson Avenue and a two-way bicycle path, sidewalk and planting strip along the south side. Both sides will include a three-foot buffer between the bicycle paths and the road.

Benefits identified from these potential improvements:



  • To provide safe travel connections for bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists over the railyard and into the surrounding communities

  • To provide aesthetic improvements for a more pleasing streetscape

​The City of Charlotte engagee the community to gain input on the preliminary design that reflects the regions vision for infrastructure connectivity.
