CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - Several public meetings will be held on Tuesday to get input on a planned bike-lanes project in Uptown Charlotte.
As of now, city leaders are gearing up to construct a cycle track on 5th and 6th streets. Developers said a cycle track is a protected bike lane where some sort of barrier is used to defend against traffic. The upcoming project could resemble the current cycle track that is on 12th Street between Brevard and Caldwell.
The planned bike lanes would connect to nearby greenways, connecting Little Sugar Creek Greenway with the Irwin Creek/Stewart Creek Greenways.
Cyclists told Fox 46 Charlotte they are happy to see Charlotte invest in more bike lines in the uptown area.
If you’re interested in giving your ideas to city leaders, you’re asked to attend one of the following meetings:
8-9:30 a.m. - Gateway Village Promenade, 800 West Trade Street
10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. - Trade and Tryon in front of the Marriott Hotel, 100 West Trade Street
