 Project updates

​In November 2014, voters approved $20 million for the Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program (CNIP). The West 4th Street extension project was selected as one of the projects to move forward under the West Trade Rozzelles Ferry CNIP. This project will reduce the number of travel lanes by narrowing the roadway to create wider sidewalks, planting strips, medians with pedestrian refuge, bike lanes, street trees, drainage improvements, new curb and gutter and street resurfacing.  The project boundaries are the I-77 overpass bridge and Tuckaseegee Road.

To provide the residents of the Wesley Heights neighborhood with a pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly roadway

A series of neighborhood meetings, public meetings, stakeholder interviews and charrettes were held during the pre-planning phase for the West Trade/Rozzelles Ferry CNIP. The project team met with more than 400 residents and attended more than 60 neighborhood meetings. To view details, visit the West Trade/Rozzelles CNIP page​.​​

​​​​​​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.
