Corridor Protection Maps Rescinded

Updated Designs Presented

On Oct. 27, 2015, the N.C. Department of Transportation presented updated designs for the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway for the U.S. 52 interchange at Bethania-Rural Hall Road and the surrounding area in Rural Hall.

Western Loop Corridor Map Update Proposed

On June 25, 2013, NCDOT presented a proposed revised map for a portion of the Western Loop from U.S. 421 to Robinhood Road, and at the Beltway interchange with Bethania- Tobaccoville Road. The revised map included three changes:

  • The interchange of the beltway with Bethania-Tobaccoville Road was redesigned to avoid impacts to a historic property.
  • Following the previous Corridor Protection Public Hearing, the section of the beltway from U.S. 421 to Robinhood Road was not protected by the Transportation Corridor Official Map Act, because right-of-way acquisition was already underway in that area at the time. This area was proposed for corridor protection.
  • A previously proposed access road from Tilmark Drive to Peace Haven Road was removed.

NCDOT subsequently decided not to adopt or file the proposed revised map.

Legal Challenges

On May 20, 2010, a U.S. District judge dismissed two lawsuits – filed in 1999 and 2008 – against proposed plans for the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway, allowing NCDOT to move forward with buying right of way and construction.
