Beyond 77 Study Vision & Needs Evaluation Workshop
The purpose of this workshop section is to facilitate a dialogue that allows the committees to help define an overall vision for the study area and then apply the vision through the development of evaluation criteria across the identified preliminary needs.
These evaluation criteria can be defined as goals, where we would then discuss how to measure and evaluate the criteria/goals for the corridor. We would then facilitate further dialogue to review the evaluation criteria as they relate to the preliminary list of needs developed from Task 4 (Existing and Future Conditions, Data Modeling). Using the defined vision, evaluation criteria/goals, and review of the preliminary needs list, we would finalize a list of needs based on the overall dialogue.
The goal is to provide further direction to the Beyond 77 Team to move forward with developing a strategy that applies the formulated evaluation criteria/goals to a series of scenarios that offer different levels of mobility solutions across the corridor.
Two workshop dates and times will be available through Zoom:
Monday, August 3, 3:30 – 7 p.m.
Tuesday, August 4, 8:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.

CRTPO Opens Public Comment Period on the Archdale-Shopton Connector
The Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) has opened a 30-day public comment period on modifications to the future alignment of the Archdale-Shopton Connector. The 30-day public comment period began Friday, July 31, 2020. This public comment period offers an opportunity for residents, business owners and other interested parties, within the Charlotte Urbanized Area, which includes Iredell, Mecklenburg and portions of Union County, to submit comments to CRTPO.
The Archdale-Shopton Connector is a planned roadway that will connect Nations Ford Road and South Tryon Street. The reason for this modification is that a portion of this roadway will be constructed as part of a development along its path. This amended alignment will minimize environmental impacts and provide additional opportunities for future access to adjacent properties.
If you wish to learn more about this modification, or to submit a comment that will be considered by CRTPO, you may submit written questions or comments via email or written mail. Comments should include “Archdale-Shopton Connector Alignment Modification” in the subject line to be considered.
Email comments should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Written mail should be sent to:
Andy Grzymski, AICP
CIP & Regional Coordination Section Manager
Charlotte Department of Transportation
600 E. Fourth Street, Room 627
Charlotte, NC 28202-2816
Members of the public may also submit written comments to be read during the CRTPO board meeting scheduled for September 16, 2020. Please go to https://www.crtpo.org/how-get-involved/meetings for more information.

Great Trails State Plan - Online Survey & Public Input Map
NCDOT is encouraging residents and leaders to participate in a brief survey on multi-modal transportation in North Carolina. The input will be used to identify a network of shared-use paths and trails that connects every county in North Carolina.
The public can give feedback in two ways by taking an interactive map survey or a 10-question survey. Participants are encouraged to take both surveys beginning now through September 30, 2020. These surveys are a part of NCDOT’s effort to develop its statewide trail plan and 5-year implementation strategy, called the Great Trails State Plan.
