Union County Seeks Feedback on Comprehensive Transportation Plan Amendments

Union County, in coordination with the Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization, is opening a comment period on a series of 13 amendments to the Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP). The CTP is a regional transportation plan identifying transportation system improvements necessary to meet future mobility demands within the region. Union County is proposing to amend the network to remove or modify new road segments to incorporate environmental and community constraints, as well as to reflect network modifications due to the Monroe Expressway. 

The comment period will begin June 20 and end July 21, 2019. The amendments are available for review at https://arcg.is/1niGby as well as at the Union County Planning Department offices, located at 500 North Main Street, Suite 70, Monroe, NC 28112.  

There will be two informal community meetings where the public can learn more about these proposed amendments. The same information will be shared at both meetings.

N.C. Department of Transportation and N.C. Turnpike Authority hosted an I-485 Express Lanes open house on Thursday, June 27, 2019 to give people an opportunity to meet the project team before construction begins this summer.

The project will add an express lane in the median in each direction on I-485 between I-77 and U.S. 74 (Independence Boulevard) to improve traffic flow in this critical transportation corridor. One general purpose lane will also be added to I-485 in each direction between Rea Road and Providence Road. None of the existing lanes will be tolled.  
To further improve traffic flow in the corridor, three other projects will also be built in conjunction with the I-485 Express Lanes. These include:
  • Widening Ballantyne Commons Parkway Bridge in Charlotte; 
  • Building a new interchange at Weddington Road in Matthews; and 
  • Improving the John Street interchange in Matthews. 
For anyone who was unable to stop by the open house, visit https://publicinput.com/I-485-Charlotte to offer comments on the project.
Construction is anticipated to begin this summer, with the project expected to open to traffic in 2022. 

The N.C. Department of Transportation is developing the Public Transportation Statewide Strategic Plan to improve bus, rail, and paratransit services across the state by better matching transit services to the needs of North Carolinians. Stakeholders and the public are invited to provide input at community workshops across the state as part of the North Carolina Public Transportation Statewide Strategic Plan. The workshops are free and open to the public. No registration is necessary to attend. Community workshop dates, times, and locations are available on the project website -  https://www.ncdot.gov/divisions/public-transit/statewide-strategic-plan/Pages/default.aspx
