MATTHEWS – The public is invited to provide input on a project under development to extend McKee Road on new location from Pleasant Plains Road to East John Street, offering an alternate route to get around the town's east side.
The project was initially submitted for funding consideration by the former Mecklenburg-Union Metropolitan Planning Organization, now the Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization. The project was in its Metropolitan Transportation Plan to improve connectivity and access both to Pleasant Plains Road and East John Street.
More information and a map of the proposed improvements can be found on the NCDOT Public Meeting website.
A public meeting will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 15, at Pleasant Plains Baptist Church, 3316 Pleasant Plains Road. People may attend the meeting at any time, as no formal presentation will be made.
For those who cannot attend the meeting, they may submit comments in writing, by phone or email through Oct. 29. All comments received will be reviewed and considered for the final design.
