Project Overview and Purpose
Every day, more than 25,000 vehicles travel along the 4.2-mile stretch of Union Cross Road in Winston-Salem and Kernersville – from Sedge Garden Road, north of I-40, to just south of U.S. 311 – and that number is expected to rise to 41,000 a day by 2031.
Widening the road has not only helped improve safety and traffic flow in the area, it has better prepared the road to accommodate for the future growth.
The $30.3 million Union Cross Road widening project involved two key components:
- Widening most of the 4.2 miles of roadway – from Sedge Garden Road, north of I-40, to just south of U.S. 311 to two lanes in each direction (with the exception of the I-40/Union Road interchange, which was widened to three lanes in each direction)
- Building the area's first diverging diamond interchange at I-40
