The N.C. Department of Transportation will host media availability on Wednesday, September 14, as the contractor for the Business 40 Improvement Project has now been selected and construction can begin as early as September 26. Comments will be made starting promptly at 1 p.m. Media outlets should arrive at the Green Street South Bridge no later than 12:45 p.m. NCDOT Division Engineer Pat Ivey and Jason Mroz Design Build Coordinator at Flatiron Construction will be available for comments and questions. The N.C. Department of Transportation is beginning the project development studies to completely upgrade and streamline a one-mile section of U.S. 421/Business 40 from west of Fourth Street to east of Church Street in Winston-Salem. The project will include removing the existing pavement and replacing it with new concrete pavement. The project will also modernize the entrance and exit ramps, and replace most of the bridges on and over Business 40 with new bridges that meet current traffic demands and modern design specifications. The project will create a safer, longer lasting roadway that will help drivers get where they need to go more efficiently. For real-time travel information, call 511, visit the Traveler Services section of NCDOT.gov or follow NCDOT on Twitter using the hash tag #Biz40NC. Project-related photos can be viewed on Flickr.
