The Charlotte Department of Transportation recently invited Charlotteans to take a closer look at the streets in South End. Not a casual glance as we rush past on our way to work or to the gym, but a slow and deliberate study of the entire pedestrian experience.
The walking tours covered four portions of streets including northern and southern stretches of South Tryon Street and South Boulevard from just south of uptown to Remount Road. CDOT is collecting citizen input about these streets as part of a larger study aimed at improving safety and overall functioning for all users including pedestrians, cyclists, transit riders, and motorists.
