 Project updates

​This project will replace the pedestrian and vehicular bridges on Sardis Lane over the McAlpine Creek tributary stream with a single bridge. This project is funded by 80 percent with federal dollars and 20 percent with local dollars.

  • ​​To build a bridge that accommodates vehicles and pedestrians
  • To maintain wide travel lanes on the bridge, consistent with the roadway classification and conducive for a shared roadway
  • To create a wide sidewalk that allows more separation between pedestrians and motorists

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 the project web page, and affected residents will receive a postcard in the mail.
