Part of the City's Eastside Strategy Plan
City Council awarded the construction contract to United Construction on December 13. Construction began in February with completion in late fall 2011. Landscaping will be installed following completion of the construction work during the planting season which begins in November 2011 and ends in April 2012.
This project is funded through the Charlotte Mecklenburg Planning Commission and will continue the improvements of past streetscape work on Central Avenue in the area of Eastland Mall (Sharon Amity Road to Reddman Road).
This streetscape project will narrow Central Avenue in the area of the mall to match the completed streetscape work in other sections of Central Avenue. The completed project will include landscaped medians which will allow pedestrians to safely cross the street. The work will also include bicycle lanes, widened sidewalks, planting strips and landscaping.
Please note that this figure includes all costs associated with the project such as planning and design, acquiring the right of way, utility relocation, consultant fees, construction, signalization, permits and landscaping.
The Engineering & Property Management (E&PM) project team managed the Central Avenue Streetscape Project through a four-stage process. Specific work is conducted during each stage with an emphasis on public involvement during the planning and design phases. Click here
