Project Highlights

The Winston-Salem Northern Beltway is divided into two parts – the Eastern Loop and the Western Loop – that are identified by the numbers assigned to them in the State Transportation Improvement Program, the N.C. Department of Transportation's 10-year plan that identifies the funding for transportation projects throughout the state and when they are scheduled for construction.

Eastern Loop

Part of the future I-74 corridor, the 17.1-mile Eastern Loop (identified as U-2579), runs from U.S. 52 to I-74/U.S. 311. For construction purposes, it is divided into eight sections, each of which are in various stages, as shown in the following table.
