Matheson Avenue Bridge Streetscape

The Matheson Avenue Bridge streetscape project is a City of Charlotte project. This project will incorporate pedestrian, bicycle, and aesthetic improvements on Matheson Avenue from North Tryon Street to Jordan Place, providing improved connections between North Tryon Street and the LYNX Blue Line, the Cross Charlotte Trail and the popular NoDa area.

This project will reduce Matheson Avenue from four lanes to 2 lanes in order to include a two-way cycle track along the south side and sidewalk along the south and north sides of Matheson Avenue. A three-foot-wide curb will be between the cycle track and the roadway.

The Matheson Avenue Street Conversion project, part of the city’s bicycle program, is adjacent to this one and will provide streetscape improvements along Matheson Avenue between Jordan Place and The Plaza.

Anticipated Start Date is Mid July 2024
Contract Amount $12.8 Million
