This 5.1 mile section extended the northern urban loop around Charlotte and part of Huntersville. The project included an 8-lane freeway on new alignment from west of NC 115 to west of I-85.

Other aspects of included a cut-and-cover tunnel, 31 retaining walls, and 6,720 linear feet of noise barriers. Terry led the design portion of the project, developed 14 different alternative design solutions, and resource management for the construction engineering and inspections including public involvement. The CEI services included erosion control, site material testing, utility inspection,and traffic control.
The project included recommended improvements including a third traffic lane, curb and gutter, raised median, closed drainage system, and designed improvements along State Route 66 to accommodate the expected additional traffic, including turn lanes and traffic signals.
