CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - Believe it or not , we are in the final stages of the nearly 9.5 mile, eleven stations Blue Line Extension with a completion date scheduled by the end of March 2018.
Right now, the testing phrase in ongoing at all the sites. That means trains are running day and night and gates and lights are working.
In Tuesday's meeting, the project director said she was sure the entire project would be done by the first part of the year.
"We are here to say 'Yes, we are making our March date.' We are very confident we are going to make our March date. Everybody just wants to make sure that is correct and that's what we are out here to tell everybody," Jill Brim said, the project director of the Blue Line Extension.
There will be two more community meetings this week. One will be held at the Uptown library on Wednesday. The other will be held at UNC Charlotte on Thursday
