Project phase

​Artist rendering of potential improvements ​along Tom Hunter Road


 Project updates

​This project originated from the Northeast Corridor Infrastructure (NECI) program planning effort. It is being combined with Charlotte Water's Hidden Valley Water System Improvements Project and will be constructed via a design-build contract. Combining the two projects ensures both locations are only affected once by construction, minimizing disruption to property and business owners and to residents who travel through the area.

The project proposed to provide streetscape improvements from Canterwood Drive to North Tryon Street. The conceptual cross-section includes two travel lanes, a center turning lane, sidewalk, a planting strip and street trees.

  • To improve access to North Tryon Street and the ​Tom Hunter Road light rail station

  • To provide wider sidewalks, pedestrian refuge, bike lanes and beautification with wider planting strips, decorative lighting and street trees.

  • To improve all modes of tran​sportation: pedestrian, bicycle, vehicular and mass transit

  • To improve access to the Hidden Valley neighborhood

  • To provide infrastructure that supports and encourages economic development​

Community meetings were held on the following dates to get public input on the design and answer questions.

  • October 13, 2016 at New Hampton Presbyterian Church (LYNX Blue Line Extension meeting)

  • October 12, 2016 at the Charlotte Main Library (LYNX Blue Line Extension meeting)

  • October 11, 2016 at Sugaw Creek Church (LYNX Blue Line Extension meeting)

  • May 12, 2015 at the Oasis Shriner's Center
