UPDATE: Business 40 shutdown 2018 = Be Prepared…

It’s still roughly two years away until a 1.2-mile section of Business 40 through downtown Winston-Salem is CLOSED for repairs.

FYI: To allow room for longer merge ramps, six full or partial interchanges in the stretch will be reduced to three: full interchanges at Peters Creek Parkway and Cherry-Marshall streets, and a partial interchange at Main Street.

 “The most important thing to do is to start planning now!  During the closure everyone needs to plan for additional time due to congestion during peak period” states Pat Ivy (NC DOT division engineer in Forsyth County)

Note: The two-year Business 40 re-vamp will likely start in late 2018. And be completed by November 2020.
