Charlotte voters approved Community Investment Plan bonds in the last three bond cycles (2014, 2016 and 2018) to improve infrastructure and leverage private investment throughout the city. Additional bonds will be voted on in 2018. Among the areas receiving infrastructure improvements is the North Tryon Street Gateway in the Applied Innovation Corridor's North End.
The intersection of North Tryon Street and 11th Street is a gateway between Uptown Charlotte and the businesses and neighborhoods in North End. Based on community feedback and available funding, we are making the following improvements are underway:
Improved lighting under existing railroad and I-277 bridges
Implementation of new lighting under 12th Street Bridge
New pedestrian lighting and upgrades to existing pedestrian lights and implementation of new street trees along North Tryon Street from Dalton Avenue to 11th Street
Landscaping and cleanup near I-277, 12th Street, and the railroad bridges near North Church Street/East 13th Street and 16th Street
Landscaping and hardscape features to the southwest corner of North Tryon Street and East 13th Street, including shifting the bus stop
Another City project, the
North Tryon Street business corridor, begins at Dalton Avenue and extends to 30th Street. Project amenities being implemented include crosswalks, sidewalks, planting strips, decorative lighting and bicycle lanes. The project is currently in construction.
