Road Widening
Affected Counties:

Estimated Cost: $
 109,501,000

Description

The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to widen a 7.1-mile section of Old Monroe Road (East John Street) and convert the majority of the widened road to a four-lane superstreet.

The widening will commence from Trade Street by the Matthews Post Office through Wesley Chapel-Stouts Road by Sun Valley High School affecting the towns of Matthews, Stallings, and Indian Trail.

The NCDOT asserts that widening will improve traffic flow, reduce travel delays and allow for more vehicles to travel in the area. The project also aims to offer better accommodations for bicyclists and pedestrians. In response to citizens’ fears of concrete medians and large roads invading their walkable towns, the NCDOT has made the plans more pedestrian friendly by including grass and trees in the medians.
