Monroe Connector/Bypass Update

Monroe Connector/Bypass Update

Why is the proposed Monroe Connector/Bypass important to you?  If you live in northern Union County and wish to sell your property, you need to know how the proposed route may affect your sale.  If you are considering a real estate purchase in this area, you also will want to know the proposed route.  And if you live in Charlotte, you may be happy to know that this roadway is estimated to save 30 minutes off your trip to the beach.

What is the Monroe Connector/Bypass?  The Monroe Connector/Bypass is  proposed to connect U.S. 74 near Wingate NC with the interchange of I-485 at Matthews NC.  Constructed by the NC Turnpike Authority, it will be a 20-mile toll road that will relieve congestion on U.S. 74 around Monroe NC.

What is the schedule for completion of the Monroe Connector/Bypass?  Discussion and planning for this roadway has been ongoing for many years.  The route was chosen by the Turnpike Authority in 2009 and is undergoing the Environmental Impact Study process now.  A draft Environmental Impact Statement has been completed.  The final Environmental Impact Statement is underway with engineers taking rock and soil samples along U.S. 74 during the first half of February.  The final EIS is expected to be complete during the first quarter of 2010.  The final decision on the chosen route will be published in a Record of Decision during the second quarter of 2010.  The Turnpike Authority now projects that the roadway will open in 2014.
