CORNELIUS - The N.C Department of Transportation (NCDOT) Aug. 1 will hold a citizen’s informational workshop on plans for widening I-77. The Cornelius meeting is one of two public meetings planned on the topic and is open to the public.
NCDOT aims to construct two, high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes along the I-77 corridor from Fifth Street in Charlotte north to N.C. 150 in Mooresville. Eligible carpoolers, van-pools, motorcycles, and transit vehicles will be able to use the HOT lanes for free while other travelers will be given the option to pay to use the HOT lane.
At the workshop, citizens will be able to meet NCDOT staff and to submit comments or questions in writing that will be considered during the design phase of the project. Aerial maps will be on display, but there will be no formal presentation from NCDOT or project staff.
