Working with the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), the Town is studying alternatives for improvements along the NC Highway 115 corridor (Main Street/Old Statesville Road). Two separate projects are underway - one for the north corridor and one for the south corridor. Stakeholder committees, comprised of residents and business owners along the affected corridor, have been working with staff and NCDOT to develop alternatives for consideration.
The north corridor is the area from Potts Street (near the Davidson border) to Washam Potts Road. A public meeting was held on September 20, 2016 where alternatives were presented to address congestion management, pedestrian and bicycle safety, as well as appearance. View the presentation. WSP|Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB) is coordinating with NCDOT on another major road project, the Potts Street intersection with NC Highway 115, as this impacts the NC Highway 115 north corridor project. PB will then finalize its recommendation to the Town Board, which is anticipated to occur in the late summer/early fall of 2017.
The south corridor stretches into Huntersville, covering the area from Washam Potts Road to Sam Furr Road (NC Highway 73). The goals and objectives of the south corridor improvement study (also known as Phase 2) are to improve vehicular safety, enhance bike/pedestrian facilities, and to minimize railroad interaction. View the DRAFT alternatives for the south corridor.
A public meeting will be held on Thursday, May 25, 2017. The purpose of the meeting is to review project goals and alternative designs for improving the corridor, talk with project staff and receive public input. The public is invited and encouraged to attend!
