Be Alert for Central Campus Traffic Congestion Starting Oct. 18

CPCC students: Remember that North Kings Drive will be closed between 4th Street and 7th Street beginning Oct. 18, so the City of Charlotte can install trolley car tracks at the intersection of Elizabeth Avenue and Kings Drive. Construction

This closure will impact traffic on Elizabeth Avenue as well. During construction, only one lane of Elizabeth Ave. will remain open for HANDICAPPED AND DROP-OFF TRAFFIC ONLY.

How will this work? Only the westbound lane of Elizabeth will be open from Charlottetowne Ave. to Pease Lane, at which point all traffic will be directed right onto Pease Lane, connecting drivers to N. Kings Drive and then E. 7th St.

CATS service will not be interrupted; however, the CATS bus stop near Central High and the Overcash Building will be unavailable.

During construction, we encourage you to leave early to allow for traffic delays. An updated Central Campus map will be posted on the CPCC website just prior to Oct. 18 and will remain up until Kings Drive reopens.
