The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold two public meetings next week to present information about a project to improve a section of N.C. 73 between N.C. 115 in Mecklenburg County and U.S. 29 in Cabarrus County.

The project’s aim is to reduce congestion in the corridor and provide accommodations for pedestrians and bicyclists. Recommendations to improve the roadway are included in comprehensive transportation plans developed by the Cabarrus-Rowan Metropolitan Planning Organization and Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization.

People can attend either or both meetings on the following dates:

•Monday, Jan. 28 at Lake Norman Church of Christ, 17634 Caldwell Station Road in Huntersville

•Tuesday, Jan. 29 at Connect Christian Church, 3101 Davidson Highway in Concord

Both informal meetings will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. People can drop in at any time to view design maps and speak with project team members. The same information will be presented at both meetings.

Project information and materials can also be viewed online as they become available at the project’s website.

Comments can also be submitted by phone, email or mail through Feb. 12. Contact Theresa Ellerby, NCDOT Project Manager, for more information at 919-707-6020 or All comments received will be taken into consideration as the project develops.
