NCDOT Holding Open House on “Superstreet” Plan for University City

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – NCDOT is asking for feedback on plans to convert part of University City Boulevard into a six-lane “superstreet.”

The mile-long stretch would run from John Kirk Drive, which is just past UNC Charlotte, all the way to I-485.

Left turns from side roads would go away, along with left turns at the Mallard Creek Church Road intersection.

Drivers trying to go left from Mallard Creek Church Road could also use new “quadrant roads” to circle back around.

NCDOT says the plan reduces the chances of having an accident and reduces congestion.

Tuesday’s open house will be held from 4:00pm until 7:00pm in the Lucas Room at UNC Charlotte’s Cone Center.
