1 NC 73 Small Project Scoping Process Update June 24, 2014

2 Background Problem No sections of NC 73 are scheduled for widening before 2025 (pre-STI) New NCDOT project ranking and funding formula focuses on statewide-tier corridors Continued congestion and safety issues at specific sections of corridor Strategy Take advantage of locally-controlled construction funds (CMAQ, STP-DA, Division, and local governments) Joint NCDOT/MPO/local government project identification and scoping process for small (0-$5 million) projects Next Steps Complete evaluation of all intersections Develop cost estimates and eligible funding sources Confirm project sponsors Monitor project solicitation schedules Participants Linda Dosse, David Keilson, Scott Cole, and Mike Reese (NCDOT) Justin Carroll and Bill Coxe (Huntersville) Andrew Bryant (Lincoln County) Hank Graham (GCLMPO)

3 Growth has been uneven over past decade

4 Intersection Locations Lincoln: 11 intersections Meck: 19 intersections Cabarrus: 6 intersections

5 Grouping for Analysis Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 Group 4 2A 2B

6 Results to Date Group 1 (Lincoln County) intersections evaluated – Recommended improvements a mix of new turn lanes, extending existing turn lanes, super-street, and limited multi-lane expansion – Some intersections were recommended for no short-term improvements Groups 2 and 3 (Mecklenburg County) intersections evaluated in person and via Google Earth
