Shamrock Drive Complete Street

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Part of the Capital Investment Plan

Central/Albemarle/Shamrock Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program
Project phase


 Project updates

​​​In November 2014, voters approved $20 million for the Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Programs (CNIP).  The Shamrock Drive complete street upgrade project was selected as one of the projects to move forward under the Central/Albemarle/Shamrock CNIP.  

This project will upgrade Shamrock Drive from approximately Newell Avenue to Flamingo Avenue  to create a “complete street” to better serve bicyclists, pedestrians, motorists and adjacent neighborhoods and businesses. The project will include turn lanes, sidewalks, bike lanes and crossings to help create a better bike/pedestrian connection between Eastway Drive and The Plaza and, eventually, to NoDa (North Davidson area) and the CATS Blue Line.

Area neighborhoods were awarded a Public Art Grant; therefore, the project team will be working with the Arts and Science Council and area residents to determine what art will be constructed and where it will be located along the project corridor.

Charlotte Mecklenburg Storm Water Services is partnering with the Community Investment Plan and will fund improvements to the storm drainage infrastructure along Shamrock Drive. Visit Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services for more information.
