I-77 & I-277 Noise Walls

The Charlotte Mecklenburg Planning Department and Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT) have been working with the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) to increase public awareness and facilitate decision making on the design and impact of the HOT Lane project’s proposed noise walls along I-77 and I-277. Public meetings were held on December 11th and December 17th 2013 in order to identify issues, respond to questions, share additional visual information on the location and design of the walls, and gain input from the community on preferred color and texture.

Noise Wall Wrap-Up Meeting
A Noise Wall Wrap-Up meeting was held Thursday, February 6th to bring forward draft recommendations for wall color and texture, update residents on upcoming ballots for specific residents and neighborhoods and provide status on other on-going coordination efforts regarding maintenance, access, security and storm water.

Next Steps
City staff will be updating Council regarding staff recommendations for the City’s choice on wall color and texture leading to final Council action that will be formally transmitted to NCDOT for incorporation into the project’s final design and bid process.

Upcoming Council briefings will include:
• Transportation & Planning Committee Action 
   (February 10th - Committee Meeting, 3:30pm, Room 280)
• City Council Update, (February 17th- Zoning Dinner Meeting, 5:00pm, CH-14 )
• City Council Action (February 24th- Business Meeting, 7:00pm, CMGC Chamber)
