Building Our Regional Transportation System
Charlotte keeps growing – some might say outgrowing itself. And planners have been working on one of the key challenges posed by that growth: transportation, specifically a transportation system. The Blue Line extension to the University area, tolls on I-77, proposed toll roads elsewhere and a streetcar are parts of the package. We meet with some planners and policy makers to hear more.
