This is great info, raintree! do you have a link to the source for further reading?

I'm going to read it more thoroughly later, but i have question now about some of the dollar figures:

I-77 Widening (I-485 to NC 73)

-$56,200,000

-State-funded

vs.

I-85 Widening (NC 49 Connector to Speedway Blvd, I-3803)

-$43,666,000

-State-funded

That 77 distance is just 4 or 5 miles with only 2 or 3 interchanges vs. 3 times longer and more interchanges for 85 widening (not to mention, they built a wall and streetlights on 85 that i doubt they will do on 77). It isn't like they need to buy land or lengthen bridgespans, because they have plenty of median on this stretch.

Is it just a reflection of materials prices?

Check out FY2005-FY2009 Capital Investment Plan for another description of multi-year capital projects for the City of Charlotte.

The City's Capital Budget or Capital Investment Plan (CIP), is a five-year infrastructure plan, that matches the City's highest priority Capital needs with a financing schedule. The plan includes investments in neighborhoods, housing, storm water, roads, transit, water and sewer and the airport.
