The project logo Bridge over Interstate 85

​The City of Charlotte is starting the process for preliminary design for a bridge over I-85 that will connect Research Drive to J.W. Clay Boulevard. The bridge will create connections between University Research Park to shopping and services at University Place, the J.W. Clay LYNX station, the North Tryon street corridor, the Charlotte Research Institute and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. It will accommodate motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians and public transit users. 

Featuring elements that capture the culture of the region, the North Bridge over I-85 project will bridge our community and provide a valuable transportation connection by spanning I-85 and serving as a gateway into Charlotte. Learn more at CharlotteFuture.com/I85NorthBridge.
