New South End Light Rail Station

The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) will construct a new LRT station along the LYNX Blue Line (South Corridor) approximately mid-way between the East/West Boulevard and New Bern Stations. The new station must operate and communicate as part of the overall Lynx Blue Line. Construction will take place while the Blue Line remains in service.

The City of Charlotte completed a study in 2019 to determine the feasibility of constructing a pedestrian crossing or a new station mid-way between the East/West Boulevard and New Bern Stations. Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) determined a new station would best serve the project area. The study indicated two potential locations for the new station, and a final station site will be determined through this contract.

The new station will be designed to the same standards as the recently constructed LYNX Blue Line Extension (BLE) stations and will have the capacity to serve up to three Light Rail Vehicles (LRVs). Construction and testing must occur with minimal disruption to LYNX Blue Line revenue service.
