    They'll blow less, but not none. Like they did when both were closed recently. Even then, they still blow under Matheson. And you have the line that cuts diagonally across Davidson above 36th that is supposed to be moved.......one day....

    Yes. It bothers me because the line is very heavily used

    Noise isn't great as the horns are really loud both by Craighead and when trains are going in and out of the yard near 25th street station. Vibration is only really an issue if you are right against it.

    This city is abysmal at projects

    Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    They also have a hard stop when going under 277 southbound into uptown. It must be related to the slide at Ricah Graphics during construction. They literally hit the breaks while going past it and then speed up again going into 9th Street Station

    That is fascinating . I read an article a bit back about how Charlotte has been a great example of buying up land likely to flood, but turning that into an attraction is next level. Where the Cross-Charlotte Trail we are discussing in another thread intersects with greenways could be a model. Funding is needed though.

    Charlotte Greenways and Trails

    I don't believe that has been funded yet

    Yeah, I have never really believed they would extend north of Cordelia on this thing. I'd just settle for the tunnel under Parkwood not being constantly flooded

    What is the point of the tracks through this site? Never see anything on it.

    There has to be something up here. It has been in this state for years now....

    Too many smaller neighborhoods nearby. I moved from NoDa to Villa Heights recently. Nobody knows were Villa Heights is. Same thing with Optimist Park above Parkwood. Meanwhile, I have heard people want to take the stretch above Craighead, which is actually part of NoDa, and give it another name. Makes me want to stab them with a spoon.

    Marsh has to be making a killing right after turning all of those old duplexes into luxury townhomes?
