Comments sought for proposed N.C. 16 widening in Union County

UNION COUNTY, NC – The public is invited to provide input on a project under development to widen a section of Providence Road (N.C. 16) between Rea Road and Waxhaw Parkway in Union County.

The project was initially submitted for possible funding by the former Mecklenburg-Union Metropolitan Planning Organization, now called the Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization. Increased growth in the Waxhaw area over the last decade has resulted in higher traffic volumes, supporting the need to widen N.C. 16.

More information and a map of the proposed improvements can be found on the NCDOT Public Meeting website.

A public meeting is set for 4 to 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 5, at the Weddington United Methodist Church – Helms Hall, 13901 Providence Road. People may attend the meeting at any time, as no formal presentation will be made

For those who cannot attend the meeting, they may submit comments in writing, phone or email through Nov. 19. All comments received will be reviewed and considered for the final design.

To send comments or learn more, contact NCDOT Division Project Manager Travis Preslar at TJpreslar@ncdot.gov or 704-845-1151. You may also submit comments to 12033 East Independence Boulevard, Suite H, Matthews, N.C., 28105.

NCDOT will provide auxiliary aids and services under the Americans with Disabilities Act for disabled persons who wish to participate in this meeting. Anyone requiring special services should contact Lauren Putnam at 919-707-6072 or lputnam1@ncdot.gov as early as possible so arrangements can be made.

    Does your website have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

UPDATE: All lanes are now open. This was due to a suicidal person.

TRAFFIC ALERT: I-85 is shut down in both directions at Harris Blvd exit 45 due to a police investigation. Expect heavy delays and seek alternate route until further notice.

PSA: If you’re going to watch the fireworks at Sky Show in uptown or at Carowinds, please remember that parking on the shoulder of the interstate (I-77 & I-277) to watch the show is illegal and you could be ticketed $200 or more. Stay safe everyone!
