The City of Charlotte implemented this transportation project to address safety and congestion issues along this state route heavily traveled by tanker trucks. The project called for the widening of Freedom Drive from two lanes to a four-lane, median- divided roadway. Our design included adding bike lanes and improvements to two major intersections as well as the construction of a double 8’x12’ box culvert. The final construction package included roadway and culvert plans, traffic control plans, pavement marking and signing plans, and utility relocation plans. As an NCDOT maintained facility, the project scope included extensive coordination with NCDOT staff.
