Mobile Workshop – Extending Our Reach: A Tour of the Blue Line Extension Light Rail Project

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The LYNX Blue Line Extension (BLE) is a catalyst for growth in the Charlotte community. The BLE adds an additional 9.3 miles to the existing 9.6 mile Blue Line light rail system, which boasts over 16,000 average daily riders. The existing LYNX Blue Line has promoted substantial development in the south corridor of Charlotte, and the Charlotte community is looking forward to another successful segment slated to open prior to March 2018. The tour will consist of a stop at each station, a look at existing and planned development along the alignment, and a discussion of the collaborative efforts that are making this $1.16 billion dollar project come to life.

Type: Bus and limited walking tour
