Nighttime work is underway on two road projects along Catawba Avenue in Cornelius. Reader James Sanders was out with his camera Wednesday night to document the scene.
The NC DOT is installing a right turn lane from northbound West Catawba Avenue onto Westmoreland Road. And in the Exit 28 area, contractors are starting work on resurfacing the bridge over I-77, as the DOT prepares to shift traffic to a crossover “diverging diamond” pattern. The change is designed to smooth traffic flow through the area.
The work on both projects is happening mostly at night and on weekends, with some lane closures possible. (See more in our March 31, 2014, item, “Earth is moving on Exit 28, West Catawba Road projects.”)

Developers said Friday that their proposed Sports Village off I-77 Exit 28 in Cornelius could have a significant economic impact on the Lake Norman area, providing a venue for hosting regional and national youth and adult tournaments and alleviating a shortage of courts for everything from basketball to volleyball to futsal (indoor soccer). Meanwhile, they also hinted their project could include the first ice rink north of Charlotte.
Jay Martin of Cornelius and Mike Clapp of Davidson outlined their proposal at the Lake Norman Chamber’s Focus Friday issues session Friday morning, telling about two dozen people there’s an unmet need for a multi-court facility like theirs. Read the full story
