Charlotte Streetcar





Long Range Transportation Plan Amendment
2009-2015 Transportation Improvement Program Amendment
Air Quality Conformity Determinations

At a meeting held on Wednesday, March 16, the Mecklenburg-Union MPO took action on the Charlotte Streetcar project.  The MPO voted to amend the 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) and the 2009-2015 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).  The action resulted in a 1.5 segment of the streetcar (from the Charlotte Transportation Center to the intersection of Elizabeth Avenue and Hawthorne Lane) being placed in the LRTP’s 2015 horizon year and in FY 2011 of the TIP.  The MPO also made an air quality conformity determination on the LRTP and TIP.

Listed below is the amendment report, conformity determination report and the MPO’s resolution.
