Rebuilding I-77 in south Charlotte

It’s 10 years out, but the latest thinking is to add two toll lanes in each direction. The UPoR provides a very few details here.

    Seems like they are going to have a tough time widening the road any more than it already is.

    The estimated price tag is $1 billion+ and that includes a lot of land acquisition. They’d also have to rebuild all the bridges, so it’s going to be a complete nightmare for those that use the road while work is underway.

    The answer is obvious: Don’t widen it. When people realize that the road isn’t going to get any wider, they will adjust their decisions (where to live, where to drive, etc.) around that reality.
