Program overview

The Northeast Corridor Infrastructure (NECI) Program is a collection of projects selected to improve pedestrian, bicyclist and motorist access to the CATS Blue Line Extension. This investment will help implement station area plans along the Blue Line Extension as well as provide broader connections to other community investments like the Cross Charlotte Trail and Mecklenburg County greenway system. These investments also contribute to the safe and functional access to key academic, cultural, and creative class destinations along the northeast corridor, like UNCC, NoDa (North Davidson Street Area) and the envisioned Applied Innovation Corridor (AIC)​ area just outside uptown.
