The public will get three chances this week to voice opinions on the 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan’s proposed highway projects.
Meetings are scheduled in Mooresville, Indian Trail and Charlotte, as a follow-up to last week’s release of the roadway project list.
The Metropolitan Planning Organization, a board of elected officials from Mecklenburg and nearby counties, is working on a list of priorities for highway projects over the next several decades. The proposed projects include widening of Interstate 77 in Charlotte, adding high-occupancy-vehicle lanes on Independence Boulevard, widening N.C. 73 in Huntersville and more.
This week’s meeting schedule:
Tuesday: 5-7 p.m. Charles Mack Citizen Center (Peddler Room), 215 N. Main St., Mooresville.
Wednesday: 5-7 p.m. Cultural Arts Center, 100 Navajo Trail, Indian Trail.
Thursday: 5-7 p.m. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center, 600 E. Fourth St., Charlotte.
