Road and lane closures associated with utility construction on East Stonewall and South College Streets will extend through March 24. As storm and sanitary sewer lines are reconfigured for the new project at Tryon & Stonewall, construction crews have experienced setbacks as they discover and remove abandoned waterlines. As a result, the work will continue in East Stonewall Street near the intersection of South College Street for a few more weeks. The Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT) will need to continue to close lanes and implement detours to provide limited access to local businesses only and to reduce heavy traffic volume near the worksite. CDOT will open additional lanes prior to February 17 as the scope of work decreases and/or allows.
Access to the Wells Fargo and Duke Energy Center parking decks will be delayed or require alternative routes, especially for travelers who normally use College or Stonewall Streets, while traffic on surrounding streets is expected to be heaviest due to detouring vehicles. Traffic traveling northbound on College Street from Tryon Street (or I-277/John Belk Freeway Exit 1E) to Stonewall Street will at times be limited to one lane. Also, Stonewall Street west of the College Street intersection will continue to be closed. Motorists should avoid the area around the intersection of College and Stonewall Streets if applicable.
Duke Energy Center/Levine Center for the Arts Garage - Use the Church Street entrance or take Tryon Street to access the Stonewall Street entrances.
Mint Museum Uptown at Levine Center for the Arts must close its doors to the public from July 10 through approximately August 17, 2018. The closure is necessary to refinish the building’s heavily-visited hardwood floors for the first time since the building opened to the public in 2010. The Mint Museum Uptown Shop and Halcyon restaurant will remain open through July 25, with anticipated re-opening August 1. During this interval, please plan your visit to Mint Museum Randolph, where the highly anticipated exhibition The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta will be on view through July 29! Some dates may be subject to change, and the Mint will use this website, our eblasts, and social media to keep the public informed throughout the project. | Read more
