Does anyone know if and when there are plans to widen Providence Rd. South of 485? How long does it take to get to 485 from Newtown Rd. during rush hour traffic?

Dont count on Providence Rd being entirely 4 lanes. There are sections that absolutely require it. Btw Ardrey Kell and 485, by far the worst. New Town to 485 will take you 10 minutes.

the place to look would be DOT (department of transporation). I know in Waxhaw town meetings they have said that the DOT already has it slated to widen providence to 4 lanes all the way to Waxhaw and there were tons are articles in the local papers about the widening from 485 to 84 a while back but I don't know the exact date it is planned to happen.
