Survey - U-5768: N.C. 49 Widening

Survey - U-5768: N.C. 49 Widening



The N.C. 49 Widening and Back Creek Church Road Realignment project is a joint project between the North Carolina Department of Transportation and the City of Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT).  The widening of N.C. 49 is a state-funded project.  CDOT is funding the relocation of Back Creek Church Road.

The project will widen 1.2 miles of N.C. 49 from John Kirk Drive to I-485 and realign Back Creek Church Road on new location to tie into the existing N.C. 49 and Mallard Creek Church Road intersection.  The existing intersection of N.C. 49 and Back Creek Church Road will be closed, and a cul-de-sac will be constructed on Back Creek Church Road just south of the North Carolina Railroad/Norfolk-Southern (NCRR/NS) tracks, thereby eliminating the existing at-grade railroad crossing on Back Creek Church Road.

Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project, it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed.
