CHARLOTTE– The public is invited to provide input next week on a project under development to widen 2.6 miles of N.C. 115 (Old Statesville Road) between Harris Boulevard and Interstate 485 in Mecklenburg County.
The Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) submitted the project for funding consideration to widen this important corridor. Under the proposal, the two-lane road would be widened to four lanes with a median to improve safety and ease congestion. CRTPO is also recommending accommodations for bicyclists and pedestrians.
More information and a map of the proposed improvements can be found on the NCDOT public meeting website.
A public meeting to provide information about the proposal is set for 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 21, in the gymnasium of Independence Hill Baptist Church, 10220 Independence Hill Road in Huntersville. Area residents may attend the meeting at any time, as no formal presentation will be made. They will be able to review maps, ask questions of project staff, and leave comments on the proposal.
Residents who cannot attend the meeting may also submit comments by regular mail, phone or email through March 8. All comments received will be reviewed and considered for the final design. To send comments or learn more, contact NCDOT Project Manager Travis Preslar at 980-262-6290 or 12033 East Independence Blvd., Suite H, Matthews, N.C., 28105.
NCDOT will provide auxiliary aids and services under the Americans with Disabilities Act for disabled persons who wish to participate in this meeting. Anyone requiring special services should contact Samantha Borges at 919-707-6115 as early as possible so arrangements can be made.
