What’s that construction cone? Here’s our guide to road, transit and rail projects

Mar 12, 2014 | Uncategorized

University City Partners hosted a Road and Rail Construction Briefing last week to help local businesses understand the breadth of the many projects either under way or coming soon. These range from the LYNX Blue Line Extension on North Tryon Street and our I-485 Outer Belt plans for new bridges over I-85 and North Tryon Street.  Our next newsletter will provide details on key projects. Meanwhile, here are resources to help you stay current on our transportation transformation, including a 32-slide overview of all the projects.
