CHARLOTTE – The public is invited to provide input on a project under development to improve traffic flow on Freedom Drive (N.C. 27) from Toddville Road to Moores Chapel Road in western Charlotte.
The Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) submitted the project for funding consideration to continue widening this important corridor on the city’s west side. Under the proposal, the two-lane road would be widened to four lanes with a raised median to improve safety and ease congestion.
More information and a map of the proposed improvements can be found on the NCDOT Public Meeting website.
A public meeting is set for 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 17 at Allenbrook Elementary School, 1430 Allenbrook Drive. 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, phone or email through Feb. 16. All comments received will be reviewed and considered for the final design.
