The Greensboro Urban Loop is part of the N.C. Department of Transportation’s plan to improve traffic flow within and around the city. Construction of the loop will allow traffic to bypass Greensboro and improve congestion on existing I-40, particularly in the loop that includes I-40, I-85 Business and U.S. Routes 29, 70, 220 and 421.
Four sections make up the 15 miles of roadway that will complete the 44-mile-long loop around the city. Three are complete, with only the section between U.S. 220 (Battleground Avenue) and U.S. 29 still under construction.
