East John Street/Old Monroe Road Widening

​​​​Preliminary engineering activities for a section of this project (Trade Street to I-485) have been temporarily suspended. Read more​.​

​​​Project Overview

Planning and development are underway to widen approximately 6.5 miles of East John Street and Old Monroe Road – from Trade Street to Wesley Chapel-Stouts Road – in the towns of Matthews, Stallings and Indian Trail.

Proposed work would improve traffic flow, reduce travel delays and allow for more vehicles to travel in the area. Bicyclists and pedestrians would also have accommodations along the project corridor.

Work would be divided into three sections:

  • Trade Street to I-485 interchange in Matthews (delayed) 
  • I-485/John Street interchange rebuild
  • I-485 through the town of Stallings to Wesley Chapel-Stouts Road in Indian Trail
