  1. Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    I can see the spur happening but not an interstate quality road from Charlotte to Asheville. Even though it would "just" be upgrading US 74 to interstate standards the majority of the route from Charlotte to I26 the fact that 40 already connects Wilmington to Asheville would most likely be a non-starter.
  2. Amazon HQ2

    If I had a nickel for every "HQ2 will go here" article I'd be a rich man. I'm ready for the "short list" to come out so I can read the "This is why we were right about HQ2's possible location" articles.
  3. SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    Some intern ordered too much green paint.
  4. Charlotte Bike Sharing

    I don't like the low wall basket on this model. Makes the basket fairly impractical, I would not trust a bag of groceries staying in there. Seems like a bad design compared to he more traditional bikes for actual use.
  5. Charlotte Area Transit System Long Term Transit Plan

    Without tunneling under the airport, I don't think direct terminal access is possible at all. Edit: After reviewing Google maps and the airport commerical development plan, direct connection to the terminal is not cost feasible. What would your social mobility line or plan be? Does this plan have great potential to be a game changer within the city and region itself? Or serve a political pursuit. Because one could argue that the money spend on the blue and gold line could be spend on social mobility programs but would it have the same affect that the lines currently have had and will have while also help the cause of social mobility?

  6. Charlotte Area Transit System Long Term Transit Plan

    From a physical security point of view the arrivals/departure area is a significantly higher threat, easier to access, with faster more direct access and more variables. I don't think security is playing a role in the routing of the possible future LTR, I think it's directly related to cost and availability of space.
  7. Perception of Charlotte Nationwide

    Fun fact. The second largest concentration of FIS (Foreign Intelligence Service "members'), behind DC is actually located in Fayetteville. Wouldn't be far fetched for those agents to move to Charlotte for an FBI field exercise.

  9. 300 South Tryon and Kimpton Hotel

    Drunk people have enough issues staying on the walk. Adding a rope to a curvy path is the least they could do.

    I think your taking my little joke a little hard there buddy.
  12. SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    You have to pay for a permit to block the public ROW.

    Just cranky, it's game day. People out and about having a great time. You should try it!
  14. Charlotte Photo of the Day

    Was hoping for a game day photo, really pleased! Keep Pounding!
  15. The Bad News Report

    We have already seen a Clemson v Virginia Tech game, it's great Miami won, and won impressively at that. A Miami v Clemson game is great, and I will be there, better game in my opinion and I'm sure I'm not the only one. If Miami bets Notre Dame next week, and I think they will, the ACC Championship game will be the most important of all Power Five conference games come final CFP rankings. Attendance will be fine, don't be a Debbie downer. Miami will travel for an ACC championship game, if you'd watch any Miami games this season prior tonights game (main issue for attendance at home games is the distance from campus), you'd think they were Wake Forest. But they had a packed house, they will next Saturday against Notre Dame and will bring fans to Charlotte.
