i can walk to the rail so i dig that.
i think part of the "traffic" issues we face in Charlotte is not enough people carpool. Ride on Providence Rd from Arboretum to uptown and look at the # of cars with one person.
What kills 485 is from 77 to Rea Road its what 2 lanes? Thats insidious. It should at least be 3 to Prov Rd.
74 is a nightmare except maybe around 2am.
I'm a closet civil engineer so I see so many traffic snafu's where if they put a median here or a no turn left there, it could eliminate so many bottlenecks simply by removing delays that exist.
485 is getting widened in south Charlotte. 74 is so much better towards town than it use to be. 74 in from around Crown point to Monroe is balls all the time.
The rail is almost always packed when I see it. Of course it's one line so it's not useful for everyone. They should have one go to the University, down Independence, and up 77 at least.
485 is 2 lanes because it was one of the first legs built and that area wasn't nearly as popular as it is now. It use to be country land in the early 90s
