South Boulevard & South Tryon Street Arterial Corridor Study
The City of Charlotte has completed a study of the South Boulevard and South Tryon Street corridors from Carson Street to Clanton Road. These growth corridors provide a key transportation link from Uptown to nearby neighborhoods including South End, Dilworth and Wilmore. Many apartment buildings and businesses have been constructed along these corridors over the past several years, and the demands on the transportation system in this part of the city continue to evolve.
The recommendations of the South Boulevard and South Tryon Street Corridor Studies were developed over the course of 15 months with extensive input from local residents, businesses and nonprofits. The recommendations include wide sidewalks, new pedestrian crossings, improvements to the Rail Trail, bicycle boulevards and a long-term vision for raised/separated bike lanes on both corridors.

Final Report and Recommendations for additional information.
Charlotte City Council has set aside $6 million in funding for corridor study implementation. That funding will be used to implement the near term recommendations of several corridor studies, including the South Boulevard and South Tryon Street Corridor Studies. These recommendations will also be incorporated into the South End Vision Plan, which is a collaboration between the City of Charlotte and Charlotte Center City Partners.
