Past Accomplishments

Opinion: Road widening is never the answer

On February 23, 2023, QC Nerve published a letter written collaboratively with input from the members of the Charlotte Regional Transportation Coalition’s steering committee that explains how incremental investment in the transportation network coupled with rapid population growth puts us on an unsustainable trajectory of high traffic congestion, poor air quality, unattractive economic conditions for attracting and retaining talented workers, and unsafe streets for our most vulnerable residents and offers solutions to these problems.
