This project originated from the Northeast Corridor Infrastructure Program (NECI) planning effort. The project limits are from North Tryon Street to Austin Drive.
This project will provide a new street connection by extending Orr Road from North Tryon Street to Dawn Circle and to Austin Drive. The proposed cross section includes two travel lanes, bike lanes, curb & gutter, sidewalk & planting strip and street trees. The project will replace the left-turn access to and from North Tryon Street that was lost due to the Blue Line Extension. Also, extending Orr Road adds another access point into the southern part of the Hidden Valley neighborhood, which helps alleviate potential congestion at Arrowhead Road.
