North Tryon Streetscape
This project will make street improvements along North Tryon from Dalton Avenue to 30th Street.

What's happened?
The project's Planning Phase is complete. The last design public meeting took place June 27, 2013 where the project team presented the 50% design plans. The design phase continues as plans are at 70% design completion.

What's next? The design phase should be complete by early 2014. Real estate acquisition is expected to begin early in 2014.

The project will provide infrastructure improvement that will support redevelopment along North Tryon Street.  It will build safer pedestrian crossings through traffic calming features, crosswalks, new sidewalk, planting strips, planted medians, landscaping, decorative lighting, reduction of number and/or size of driveway openings, bike lanes, and utility relocation. 

Additional goals of the project:

  • Provide opportunities for street tree planting while protecting and incorporating existing trees
  • Provide opportunities for decorative lighting on both sides of the street
  • Provide opportunities to reduce driveway cuts for possible shared driveway options
  • Provide opportunities to reduce the number and size of driveway openings
  • Provide appropriate accommodation for bicycle movement
The project limits are along North Tryon Street from Dalton Avenue to 30th Street.
