State transportation officials will update the public on the status of the Monroe Bypass during a series of meetings and hearings this week.
Programs are scheduled Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Monroe Bypass would take traffic off U.S. 74, stretching from the Mecklenburg-Union county line near I-485 to Marshville.
The project has been delayed by a series of legal challenges from environmental groups. During this week’s programs, state transportation officials will provide an update on activities and studies and information about right-of-way and relocation requirements.
Monday’s meeting is an open house from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and a public hearing at 7 p.m. It will be in South Piedmont Community College’s Building A, 4209 Old Charlotte Highway, Monroe.
Tuesday’s program includes an open house from 4-6:30 p.m., followed by a hearing at 7 p.m. It will be at the Union County Agricultural Center, 3220-D Presson Road, Monroe.
Wednesday will feature an open house from 4-7 p.m. at Next Level Church, 4317 Stevens Mill Road, Matthews. No public hearing is scheduled Wednesday.
