Real Estate Alignment Maps
The following maps illustrate the proposed real estate impacts for the LYNX Blue Line Extension project. These are conceptual plans and are subject to change.
The maps show the proposed project alignment, station locations, bridges, sidewalk, pavement, right-of-way, easements and other details of the project construction.
Temporary Construction Easements (TCE) are shown on these plans. TCEs are necessary to complete the project along the right-of-way. TCEs are used to provide temporary rights to the City to engage in construction activity on a property. Once the construction is complete, the property rights will revert back to the original property owner.
Real Estate Services
City of Charlotte Engineering and Property Management Real Estate staff will be contacting property owners with information on potential impacts to their property due to the construction of the LYNX Blue Line Extension.
The staff of the Real Estate section provides three primary services: acquisition of property for City projects, surveying and mapping services and management of the City's real property assets.
Real Estate Acquisition
Land may be acquired for rights-of-way, easements and encroachment agreements necessary for the successful completion of public projects such as roads, sidewalks, police and fire stations. This team also acquires easements for utility, water and sewer improvements. This process takes place after the planning and design phases of a project are complete. All property acquisition must be complete before construction begins.
The following brochures are designed to explain the rights and benefits of citizens affected by Charlotte-Mecklenburg public projects.
