Completion of Highway 49 Widening Projects Behind Schedule

(5/6/2001) According to the Charlotte Observer, three NC Highway 49 widening projects are behind schedule.

The new five lane section from Tyvola Road to Arrowood Road was scheduled for completion in July 2001, but will open at least a month late.

Widening from I-485 to Moss Road (at the entrance to the Crossings) is slightly behind schedule but completion in late 2002 is still expected.

Construction of the final section from Moss Road to Buster Boyd Bridge was scheduled to start in June, but this has been delayed until October. It was scheduled to be completed by the end of 2003, and the Observer says commpletion of the entire Highway 49 widening project is still expected by late 2003.

The new, widened Buster Boyd Bridge was scheduled for completion in November 2001, but will not open before early summer 2002.
