NC51 (Matthews-Mint Hill Road) Widening

NCDOT Project U-5007
Project Summary

This is a State Transportation Improvement Project (STIP) which will widen NC51 (Matthews-Mint Hill Road) from two lanes to four lanes.  It will include adding a median down the center of the road (with cut-throughs at intersections and other key locations) and potential mulit-use path along the southern side of the road.

The extent of the project will be from the intersection of NC51 and Lawyers Road southward to the intersection of NC51 and Matthews Township Parkway.

Latest News and Updates

The project is 100% funded, designed, and managed by NCDOT.  However, staff from the Town of Mint Hill and the Town of Matthews are working closely with NCDOT to ensure our Towns' interests are addressed in this critical project.

NCDOT will hold public meetings for this project in the future.  When those meetings are scheduled, the information will be posted here.

The tentative schedule of the project is to begin design in 2020, right-of-way acquisition in 2021-2022, and construction beginning in 2023. Construction will likely last three years.


Idlewild Road Widening (I-485 to Stevens Mills Road)

This project is in the preliminary planning phase as of the summer of 2018. NCDOT's current schedule anticipates planning and design lasting through 2019, right-of-way acquisition in 2020, and construction beginning 2022. The Towns of Mint Hill, Matthews, and Stallings are working with NCDOT staff to ensure the interests of all towns are cared for in the planning and design process.
