A Neighborhood Improvement Project

In November 2006, voters approved $25,000,000 for neighborhood improvement projects including approximately $5,000,000 for Lincoln/Wilson Heights.  This project is bounded by Russell Avenue, I-77, Beatties Ford Road and Friendship Place.

  • The neighborhood will receive improvements, but not limited to curb and gutter, sidewalks with ADA  wheel chair ramps, planting strips and storm water drainage.
  • Charlotte Mecklenburg Utilities has a water and sewer replacement project in construction. Contact: Fred Hunter, CMU Project Manager at 704-391-5124.

In 2011, the project was separated into two phases. Phase 2 will build sidewalk, curb and gutter, planting strips and storm drainage on Kennesaw Drive and Hatteras Avenue (in Lincoln Heights) as well as A and B Avenues (in Wilson Heights).
