N.C. 73 Transportation & Land Use Corridor Plan

​​​​Study Overview

​The N.C. 73 Corridor is an east-west highway that serves rapidly growing areas within Cabarrus, Lincoln and Mecklenburg counties.

The three participating counties and five municipalities (Concord, Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville and Kannapolis) teamed with regional planners, business organizations, consultants and the N.C. Department of Transportation to design a comprehensive land-use, urban design and transportation plan that incorporated existing and anticipated land use and transportation patterns for the eight local governments along the corridor.

Most importantly, the plan was tailored to meet the needs and demands of individual communities, while also promoting cohesion along the entire corridor. Issues addressed in the study include: future land use projections, needed roadway improvements on N.C. 73 and adjoining roads, right-of-way preservation, access management techniques and land-use buffers.
