Welcome to Build a Better Boulevard:
a project to imagine the future of Wilkinson Boulevard. 

Together with local stakeholders and professional consultants, the municipalities of Belmont, Cramerton, and McAdenville are working to improve the quality of an important corridor that links the communities of eastern Gaston County and the greater Charlotte region.  In studying the Past and evaluating the Present, we can create an informed and exciting vision of the Future role of Wilkinson Boulevard, one that continues to serve current and projected traffic needs while also encouraging new opportunities for residents and travelers.


On Sunday, August 24 from 5:00-7:00 pm, the inaugural Two Rivers Ride will take place and the team from Build a Better Boulevard is excited to be joining the community for the ride! The first of this new monthly community bicycle ride will begin at South Main Cycles and finish at Glenway Premium Pub in downtown Belmont.

We will take several breaks along the route to discuss ways to improve the path and evaluate areas for future rides. Mark you calendars for future rides, on Sunday 9/21 and Sunday 10/26 as well.  The Two Rivers Ride is free, riders need only to bring their bicycles (helmets required) and water.

See you at the first ride!
