Stop the superstreet planned for Matthews

John Street in Matthews, NC certainly has a traffic problem. Before relying on an experimental, unproven super street design to solve this issue, we encourage town officials and the NCDOT to finish other street projects that will alleviate traffic Matthews traffic.

Neighborhoods adjacent to John Street are important to the liveliness and viability of our town. Children must be safe getting from their school or home to the library. Visitors to the many events in Stumptown Park should feel safe walking through the John Street intersection to visit the restaurants, bars, and shops. Alternative designs in scale with the pedestrian design of Matthews must be considered. 

We are signing this petition to stop the super street proposed through downtown Matthews.


This petition will be delivered to:
  • Mayor of Matthews, NC
