N.C. 73 Project Information

The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has begun planning and design to widen a 14-mile stretch of N.C. 73 from two to four lanes between N.C. 115 (Old Statesville Road) and U.S. 29 (Concord Parkway North) in Mecklenburg and Cabarrus counties.

Planning, design and construction for the improvements will be completed as two separate projects, listed as R-2632AB and R-5706 in the N.C. Department of Transportation’s State Transportation Improvement Program.

  • STIP R-2632AB involves widening N.C. 73 (Sam Furr Road) from N.C. 115 (Old Statesville Road) to Davidson-Concord Road in Mecklenburg County to help reduce congestion. Improvements would also include providing bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.
  • STIP R-5706 involves widening N.C. 73 from Davidson-Concord Road in Mecklenburg County to U.S. 29 (Concord Parkway North) in Cabarrus County to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion at the intersections along N.C. 73 (Davidson Highway).

The project would also involve providing pedestrian and bicycle accommodations using a combination of multi-use paths, sidewalks and bicycle lanes.

Learn more about the project, funding, timeline, and points of contact at the NCDOT website here.
