Undertaken by the City of Charlotte in order to alleviate congestion and mitigate safety concerns, the US 29/NC 49 Intersection project called for the reconstruction of the existing partial grade-separated split of NC 49 and US 29. The project included the construction of a wide median to accommodate the future Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) Blue Line Extension. The new intersection will connect to the proposed interchange at I-85, as part of the NC 49/ Graham St. project.
American Engineering’s project deliverables included a planning report, environmental assessment, roadway and bridge construction plans, right-of-way plans and plats, and an extensive public involvement process. The project connects to an interstate highway interchange and required considerable coordination and communication with NCDOT staff.
