Representatives from NCDOT met with PTAA members in Winston-Salem to provide them with information about the closure of Business 40 for construction. While work on the project began last year, the closure of all lanes of traffic between Peters Creek Parkway on the west, and US 52 on the east, isn’t expected until Fall of 2018.
At that point, the major access points to downtown Winston-Salem will include:
From the east:
- MLK Jr. Blvd exit off of Business 40 east of US 52
- US 52 north to MLK Jr. Blvd or Liberty St
- US 52 south to Research Parkway
From the west:
- Peters Creek Parkway
- Main Street north from Silas Creek Parkway
- Academy from Peters Creek Parkway
NCDOT’s representatives were able to answer questions from attendees about the anticipated impact the construction will have on downtown businesses and residents; address concerns about whether the project will be completed on time; advise them on how to educate their prospects and residents about the project.
