Part of the Transportation Program
Many intersections are not pedestrian or bicycle-friendly due to a number of factors, such as a lack of pedestrian signals or crosswalks, signal timing issues, excessive crossing distances, absence of sidewalks or wheelchair ramps, absence of bicycle lanes and miscellaneous intersection design features. This project seeks to improve travel conditions for vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users at the Ballantyne Commons Parkway and Elm Lane intersection.
- Improve travel conditions for vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclist and transit users at existing intersections
- Create more travel choices
Recently the intersection of Ballantyne Commons Parkway and Elm Lane received an upgrade to the traffic signal. The northbound left turn movement on Elm Lane now has a new left turn signal head. This gives vehicles in the left turn lane a green arrow if a sufficient number of cars are in the lane to activate it. If only a few cars are turning left, vehicles are given a green ball and they will have to yield to the opposing oncoming traffic. During construction of the project, all four approaches will receive upgraded signal configurations to match the new lanes. For additional information on the traffic signal upgrade, please contact CDOT’s Public Service Division at 704-336-4119.
Please note this is the funding amount and 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. Additional funding may be identified after the planning phase.
The Engineering & Property Management (E&PM) project team will manage the Ballantyne Commons/Elm Land Project through a four stage process. Click here to learn how City projects are selected, designed and built.
