Johnson Street & Sandy Ridge Road Widening

​​​​​​Project Overview

Planning and development are underway to widen 4.4 miles of Johnson Street and Sandy Ridge Road from Skeet Club Road to I-40 in High Point. 

Proposed work would help reduce congestion and traffic delays by widening the road from two to four lanes. Bike lanes, a multi-use path and sidewalk are also proposed.

Johnson Street and Sandy Ridge Road are important north-south transportation routes in the area that experience traffic congestion and delays due to capacity deficiencies. The corridor is locally and regionally important as a connection between High Point and Greensboro, including major destinations such as the Piedmont Triad International Airport and Piedmont Triad Farmers Market. The existing two-lane roadway also lacks adequate accommodations for pedestrians and bicyclists.
