Planning and development are underway to widen 4.4 miles of Johnson Street and Sandy Ridge Road from Skeet Club Road to Interstate 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.
This project is listed as Project U-4758 in the N.C. Department of Transportation's State Transportation Improvement Program and is funded for $66.4 million.
