I-485 Express Lanes

6/27/2019 7:00 PM

​STIP Number I-5507

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Project Information

For more information on this project, go to the I-485 Express Lanes page​. ​
​The N.C. Department of Transportation and Turnpike Authority will hold a pre-construction open house public meeting to display and explain design features of the the proposed I-485 express lanes in the Charlotte area.

The project will add one express lane in each direction on I-485 between I-77 and U.S. 74 (Independence Boulevard), providing travel time reliability and improving traffic flows on this critical transportation corridor. This project will also add one general purpose lane in each direction between Rea Road and Providence Road, and a new interchange at Weddington Road. In coordination with other projects in south/southeastern Mecklenburg County, this project would serve as part of a larger network of express lanes offering drivers the option of more reliable travel times.

Updated information regarding noise walls will be available at another public meeting later this year.

A public meeting is scheduled for:

Thursday, June 27, 2019
Noon-7 p.m.
Endhaven Elementary School
6815 Endhaven Lane

Representatives from the design and construction team will be available in an informal, open house-style setting to provide information and answer questions regarding upcoming construction. There will be no formal presentation.
