 Eligibility: Must be ready to be obligated within 120 days and be completed within three years. Projects must be on the Federal-Aid system.

Projects Identified by NCDOT Division 10:
  • NC-51 Widening (Mecklenburg County) $8.3 million
  • NC-218 Pavement Rehabilitation (Anson, Union and Mecklenburg Counties) $17 million
  • NC-73 Bridge (Stanley County) $4.7 million
  • SR-1542 Expansion (Stanley County) $5.6 million
  •  I-85 Pavement Rehabilitation (Cabarrus County) $3 million
Projects Identified by MUMPO:
  • NC-73 Widening (Huntersville) $14 million
  • Faith Church Road/Unionville-Indian Trail Road Intersection Improvement (Indian Trail) $400,000
  • ITS Expansion (Charlotte) $4 million: The ITS Expansion involves two major efforts. The first will provide 20 miles of fiber optic cable to enhance traffic signal communication as well as provide more than 50 traffic surveillance cameras. Most of the cameras will be located in northeast Charlotte on Harris Boulevard, N. Tryon Street and University City Boulevard, an area of Charlotte that has been lacking in camera coverage. The second effort is to provide real-time video from the traffic surveillance cameras to other City departments and external customers (including news media and citizens). This will be accomplished in large part by converting the analog video to digital.
  • N. Trade/Matthews-Mint Hill Road Intersection Improvement (Matthews) $550,000
  • NC-16/NC-75 Intersection Improvement (Waxhaw) $550,000
  • Concord Road/East Rocky River Road Roundabout $600,000
