City to Close Kings Drive Oct. 21
The City of Charlotte has announced Kings Drive will be closed between 4th Street and 7th Street starting Oct. 21, and remain closed for several weeks, to install trolley car tracks at the intersection of Elizabeth Avenue and Kings.
This closure will have a major impact on vehicular traffic on and around Central Campus. The map below shows the traffic flow during the construction project.
The construction project will force students and employees to plan accordingly. Getting in and out of Central Campus parking areas likely will take more time.

Faculty, please inform and remind your students of this street closure since traffic on Elizabeth Avenue will be impacted. 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.
