Wallace Neel Road
to be Closed until Summer 2008
(May 27, 2007)
Due to the construction of a new runway, the Charlotte-Douglas Airport is relocating
Road, Old Dowd Road, and West Boulevard and is extending West
Boulevard to I-485. During construction of the new roads,
local traffic will be redirected to Walkers Ferry Road, Mt. Olive
Church Road, and Dixie River Road. Before traffic is relocated, Mt.
Olive Church Road will be widened and repaved.
The map below (taken
Charlotte-Douglas International Airport web site) shows
relocated Old Dowd Road (A), relocated Wallace Neel Road (B and C),
a new section of West Boulevard (E), and relocated West Boulevard (F
and H). Areas west of I-485 will have access to the new Wallace Neel
Road across overpasses for Walkers Ferry Road and Dixie River Road
the relocations of Old Dowd Road and Wallace Neel Road and the
extension of West Boulevard to I-485 is scheduled for completion in
summer 2008. The relocation of West Boulevard east of the existing
Wallace Neel Road will be completed later, once funding is in place.
