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.
