Providence Road Sidewalk Construction
NCDOT TIP # C-5541
Project Type: Sidewalk Construction
Affected Counties: Mecklenburg
Estimated Cost: $ 938,000
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and the City of Charlotte plan to construct a new sidewalk in Charlotte on the southwest side of Providence Road between Mammoth Oaks Drive and East Barden Road.
Supporters believe this 0.65-mile section will make it safer for pedestrians by filling many of the gaps of the sidewalk network in that area.
However, some residents are concerned about the potential impacts on the surrounding area. This project and other expansions will be affecting business, land, and home owners in Charlotte.
