​Belmont Street & Parkwood Avenue

A new traffic signal has been approved by the Charlotte Department of Transportation for installation at the intersection of Belmont Street and Parkwood Avenue.  The signal is being installed to accommodate existing and future traffic, to provide improved pedestrian and bicycle crossings of Parkwood Avenue, and to create better traffic flow coordination.

Where is the money for the signal coming from? 

Currently, this signal is unfunded.

Will any additional road construction take place before the signal is installed?
