The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting to provide an update regarding the Business 40 Improvement Project that will reconstruct and streamline a 1.2-mile section of Business 40 from west of 4th Street to east of Church Street.

Two sessions will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 19 at the Old Salem Visitors Center located at 900 Old Salem Road in Winston-Salem:

The meeting will focus on the reconstruction of the Peters Creek Parkway interchange, which will begin in October of this year. The full 20-month closure of Business 40 from Peters Creek Parkway to U.S. 52 will begin in the Fall of 2018, after the completion of Peters Creek Parkway interchange.

The public may attend at any time during the hours mentioned above. NCDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project and answer any questions regarding the construction sequence, closure timeline and traffic management plans.
