Transportation planning organization looking for input

Sept. 28. The Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) is developing future transportation projects for Iredell, Mecklenburg and Union counties, and is requesting resident input on potential transportation priorities. Three major Cornelius projects are included and town officials urge residents to support the proposal.

“All of these are great projects for Cornelius,” said Mayor Pro Tem Mike Miltich. “Public input certainly wouldn’t hurt, especially since there is usually very little comment from citizens.”

The three projects are the widening of US 21 from Westmoreland Road to Catawba Ave, the widening of NC 115 from Sam Furr Road to Davidson, and the Bailey Flyover bridge over I-77 to connect to the future Northcross Road extension.

The State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), is updated every two years and identifies the construction funding and schedule for state transportation projects over a 10-year period.

The proposed highway, bicycle and pedestrian, transit, rail, and aviation projects and maps are posted on the CRTPO website, www.crtpo.org, under the Transportation Improvement Program tab.

Comments should be directed to Judy Dellert-O’Keef using the following methods:
