Construction crews will set the first girders for the last light rail bridge to be completed on the Blue Line Extension at approximately 10:30 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 10, near 8551 North Tryon Street (Bank of America parking lot).

Efforts by the Charlotte Area Transit Authority (CATS)will bring light rail to campus; the expected completion date is summer 2017. Major changes have occurred along the path of light rail (primarily North Tryon Street) and on campus as the University will be the terminus for the Blue Line.
