Charlotte’s growing population puts added stress on the city’s transportation network in the form of congestion. This new program is intended to help mitigate congestion and improve traffic flow in targeted areas through small-scale, quick infrastructure projects. Projects could include adding turn lanes at intersections, extending existing lanes, or making new road connections to enhance the street grid. Initial funding is dedicated to projects in the Steele Creek, South Charlotte, and University City areas.
- $6,700,000 in previously-approved Short-Term Road Congestion funding
- $7,612,000 in proposed 2020 Transportation Bonds
