A big project is coming to Charlotte.
Center City Partners announced the construction of a pedestrian bridge over Interstate 277, will commence after a 1 million dollar donation from US Bank. The bridge will connect uptown with South End. In total, the project will cost an estimated 11.5 million dollars.
The bridge will cross the interstate between South College Street and South Boulevard. Design work is expected to start this year, with construction beginning by summer 2021.
The soon-to-be bridge will finally close the gap in the rail trail, which ends just before I-277 and picks up again a few blocks into uptown. The new path will make it much easier for commuters who walk/ bike/ scooter to uptown.
