Project Overview

Northern Mecklenburg County and southern Iredell County is one of the fastest growing areas in North Carolina. In addition to rapid population growth, the area has limited north-south roadways to accommodate increased traffic. In 2010, the Urban Land Institute completed a study that identified the need for north-south connectivity and recommended a new facility, the North-South Parkway. The North-South Parkway would complement existing NC 115 through the area and offer additional access for developments.

Local jurisdictions, including Huntersville, Davidson, Mooresville, and Iredell County have added segments of a North-South Parkway to their jurisdiction’s plans. ¬†In 2018, local jurisdictions, including the Towns of Huntersville, Davidson, Mooresville, Cornelius, and Iredell County agreed that a comprehensive effort must be undertaken to link their efforts together in a cohesive manner. The North-South Parkway Sub Area Study will provide the local jurisdictions with a cohesive plan for a new North-South transportation corridor to support population growth.

Identification and refinement of the proposed North-South Parkway is necessary for the communities within the area. The North-South Parkway Sub-Area Study will better position facilities for funding and construction through the development process. Your input is critical for considering the use of existing roadways, new alignments or a combination of both, along with development opportunities for communities in the study area.
