Blue Line Extension (Northeast Corridor)


LYNX Blue Line Extension (Northeast Corridor)
The Blue Line Extension (BLE) Transit Station Area Plans are policy documents that provide the framework for future growth and development along the second segment of Charlotte’s comprehensive rapid transit system that extends from 9th Street in Center City through the North Davidson (NoDa) Street area to UNC Charlotte.

These plans primarily focus on land use, transportation and community design and update portions of several previously adopted area plans. Elected and appointed officials use the transit station area plans as policy guidance when making land use, zoning, and capital investment decisions.
