 Upcoming events




 Project updates

​​Residential and commercial development have proliferated in South End along the LYNX Blue Line, increasing the need for pedestrians and bicyclists to safely cross the light rail tracks between blocks in order to access homes and businesses. Currently, more than 3,000 feet separate the track crossing at Remount Road from the one at Tremont Avenue. 

​This project will include the planning, design and construction of an at-grade pedestrian/bicycle crossing over the LYNX Blue Line in South End, located between Tremont Avenue and Remount Road. 

  • ​​To improve connectivity for pedestrians and bicyclists whose homes and businesses are located mid-block between Tremont Avenue and Remount Road
  • To help eliminate unauthorized​ crossing of the light trail tracks in nondesignated areas

With direction from Charlotte City Council, project teams seek input from the community in order to build better projects and provide better services. Often, this input comes from the public involvement process used when building capital projects. Neighborhood public meetings are conducted by project teams and consultants in order to solicit ideas from nearby businesses and residents affected by the project and identify their concerns. Upcoming meetings will be posted on this page, on the Citywide Projects Portal and on the Citywide events calendar. ​​

​​To be determined

​​​​​​The Capital Investment Plan approved by City Council in 2013 calls for voters to consider approval of funding for a number of infrastructure programs. Voters approved bond financing in 2014, 2016 and 2018 and will vote on further bond financing in 2020. For this project, City staff engages the community to determine the details of what will ultimately be built. Once these details are known, the cost of the project is estimated and published.
