It doesn't look like the project page is live yet, but there should be a public hearing coming up in February for the I-85/I-485 interchange improvements.

McAuley Road may be the last dirt road in all of Mecklenburg County.  The 1.5-mile road in the northern part of the county has recently been named a state Byway.

Travel down this road and you'll immediately forget the ongoing growth of the Northern Mecklenburg and Western Cabarrus suburbs.  Over 700 acres of land along McAuley Road has also been preserved by the Catawba Lands Conservancy.

Bus lanes set to open soon on Independence Boulevard.

So that large gantry that they took down at the Albemarle Rd split and placed in the bus lanes will finally come back out?  I wonder why it was taken down.  One week it was up, the next it wasn't.  Independence is part of my semi-regular commute whenever I work close to Uptown and stay at my regular hotel in Matthews.

A fetal car accident was what took it down, a few weeks ago. It's been sitting in the bus lanes for a few weeks now. Construction has started on reopening the lanes.

I was hoping that wasn't the case, but I had a feeling that it might have been, considering how crazy everybody drives through there.  Must have happened over a weekend, or maybe during one week when I happened to not be working in Charlotte.
