From the news stories when they announced the new runway, environmental impact studies will be conducted this year, with construction expected to start in 2014. While it's not in any of the stories I found this morning, I do remember hearing when the announcement was made that the overview would be relocated. Where it will be located, and the timing of constructing a new overview (during or after runway work) wasn't made clear.

Now, granted, you might not see all of that from the overview - some of them tend to use some of the other runways, but that's an idea of the type of traffic you will see around CLT.
