Temporary Closure of A Portion of LYNX Rail Trail

Temporary Closure of A Portion of LYNX Multi-Use Trail

Staff Resource:            Tina Votaw, CATS, 704.432.3013 or tvotaw@charlottenc.gov

A portion of the City’s multi-use trail, between Remount Road to just south of Tremont Avenue that parallels the LYNX Blue Line, will be closed for approximately four (4) weeks beginning in early August to reconstruct the trail adjacent to the Southline Apartments, currently under construction.  The developer of the Southline Apartment project, JLB Southline LLC (JLB), is required to upgrade and widen the trail, install pedestrian scale lighting, landscaping and decorative fencing as envisioned in the City’s Station Area Plan.

The duration of the temporary trail closure is weather dependent.  Signs will be posted to notify trail users in advance that the trail will be temporarily closed.  The existing sidewalks along South Boulevard will be the primary pedestrian detour route. Dunavant Street and Hawkins Street will be the primary bicyclist detour route. Light rail operations should not be affected by this work.

City staff will work with JLB, providing information regarding the temporary closure on the City’s website, through email distribution to the cycling community, through CATS Riders Alerts and through Charlotte Center City Partners/Historic South End
