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 also would have accommodations along the project corridor.
Work would be divided into four sections:
- Trade Street to I-485 interchange in Matthews (delayed)
- I-485/John Street interchange rebuild (under construction)
- I-485 interchange in Matthews to Morningside Meadow Lane in Stallings
- Morningside Meadow Lane to Wesley Chapel Stouts Road in Indian Trail
