Community Meetings on Brown-Grier Road, Sandy Porter Road, and Ayrsley Town Boulevard Upgrades on April 17 and 18

(April 3, 2018) Brown-Grier Road, Sandy Porter Road, and Ayrsley Town Boulevard are being upgraded as part of Charlotte's Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program (CNIP) for the Whitehall/Ayrsley area.

City staff have scheduled two events to share information with residents and answer questions.

Brown Grier Road and Sandy Porter Road Public Meeting

Public Meeting
Tuesday, April 17, 2018
5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Kennedy Middle School
4000 Gallant Lane, Charlotte NC 28273

Join city staff on Tuesday, April 17 for a drop-in meeting from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Kennedy Middle School. Residents will be able to review the final concept plans for these projects based on feedback received during previous in-person and online meetings. These projects are located along Brown-Grier Road between Steele Creek Road and Whitehall Park Drive, and along Sandy Porter Road between Williams Glen Road and South Tryon Street. Potential improvements include additional lanes, medians, bicycle facilities, planting strips, sidewalks, and other amenities.

After the meeting, concept plans will be posted on CharlotteFuture.com/Whitehall for those unable to attend and give feedback in person. See Notice.

See Brown Grier Road Upgrades and Sandy Porter Road Upgrades.

Ayrsley Town Boulevard Project Update

The project team will be attending the Ayrsley Community Event on April 18 from noon until 2 p.m. in the Piedmont Social House lawn. Staff will be available to introduce residents to the project and answer questions. See Notice. Specific improvements may include pedestrian signals, pedestrian safety refuges, reverse-angle parking​​​​​, reconstructing sidewalk ramps to meet ADA/PROWAG standards, and striping crosswalks. See Ayrsley Town Boulevard Project.

Westinghouse Boulevard Multiuse Trail

This project will construct a multiuse trail for bicyclists and pedestrians along Westinghouse Boulevard between South Tryon Street and Shopton Road West. This trail will eventually tie into the greenway system. Design of this project continues, and the project team expects to complete final plans in the summer of 2018. Updates will be posted as the project proceeds through the design phase. See Westinghouse Boulevard Multiuse Trail.

Steele Creek Greenway

A greenway along Steele Creek from Westinghouse Boulevard to Olympic High School has also been selected for further planning.

Public Art

Approximately half of 1% of the cost of Charlotte capital projects is reserved for public art, so there will be artwork included in the roadways and other projects. Estimated cost is $180,000.

In November 2016 voters approved a $55,000,000 bond referendum for Neighborhood Improvement Bonds to pay for continuing expenses for the Whitehall/Ayrsley and other CNIP projects.
