CHARLOTTE -The N.C. Department of Transportation has scheduled a public meeting on Thursday, April 10 to discuss proposed improvements to West Catawba Avenue from Sam Furr Road (N.C. 73) to Jetton Road in Mecklenburg County.
The proposed project is an extension of improvements made on Catawba Avenue between I-77 and Jetton Road in 2009. The purpose of the project is to improve mobility and safety for motorists, public transit users, pedestrians and bicyclists, as current traffic volumes exceed vehicle capacity in the project area. Forecasted volumes for 2035 and additional development will create longer travel times.
The meeting will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. at Cornelius Town Hall, 21445 Catawba Avenue in Cornelius. Interested citizens may attend at any time during the meeting hours to speak with NCDOT representatives, ask questions and submit comments in writing. There will not be a formal presentation.
For more information, contact Elmo Vance, Project Development Engineer, NCDOT-Project Development and Environmental Analysis Unit, 1548 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, 27699-1548, by phone at (919) 707-6048 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments will be accepted through May 9.
NCDOT will provide auxiliary aids and services under the Americans with Disabilities Act for disabled persons who want to participate in this workshop. Anyone requiring special services should contact Mr. Vance as early as possible so that arrangements can be made.
Persons who speak Spanish and do not speak English, or have a limited ability to read, speak or understand English, may receive interpretive services upon request prior to the meeting by calling 1-800-481-6494.
