The project is in the preliminary stages of development. Over the past several months, the N.C. Department of Transportation has worked closely with local government agencies in Charlotte and Matthews to ensure their ideas and concerns are identified and considered. This coordination will continue as we prepare project design plans.
Environmental and Preliminary Design Studies
Currently, NCDOT is conducting detailed field studies of the project area to identify potential impacts to human and natural environments.
NCDOT is also preparing preliminary design plans for the proposed improvements to Independence Boulevard from I-277 to Wallace Lane.
