Catawba Crossings Feasibility Study Joint MPO Presentation On October 13

The Gaston-Cleveland-Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization (GCLMPO) and regional project sponsors have finalized the Catawba Crossings Feasibility Study. The final Feasibility Study may be reviewed on the project website:

The Catawba Crossings Project proposes a new alignment roadway between NC 279 (S. New Hope Road) in southeastern Gaston County to NC 160 (Steele Creek Road) in western Mecklenburg County.  The GCLMPO recommends a four- to six-lane, median-divided boulevard. A boulevard typically includes landscaping along the roadway as well as bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.

The GCLMPO and project consultants will make a joint presentation to the GCLMPO and the Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) elected representatives and technical representatives among the member jurisdictions. The presentation will be informational only. There will be no request for action (e.g., votes) by any governing body.

The public is invited to watch the informational joint local government presentation on Facebook Live beginning at 6:00 PM on Thursday, October 13, 2022.
