LYNX Blue Line Extension Testing Begins
The LYNX Blue Line Extension testing began today (Wednesday, 07JUN17) and will continue through Friday for the area along North Tryon Street near Charlotte’s University area.
An extension of the Blue Line to University City and UNCC is under construction, along the existing Norfolk Southern right-of-way at North Davidson and North Tryon Streets. The extension is scheduled to open this coming March.

CATS representatives confirmed today that construction of the LYNX Blue Line Extension remains on schedule for the March 2018 planned completion. Stay tuned…
