Business 40 will not be closing now

The closure will take place after Phase 1 is completed. Phase 1 includes the design and right-of-way acquisition for the entire project, construction of Peters Creek Parkway interchange at Business 40 and road improvements at Academy Street, and widening of MLK Jr. Drive between Marshall and Trade Streets. Only after Peters Creek Parkway and local improvements are completed, Phase 2 will begin, which is the closure of Business 40 for up to 2 years.

Thank you for your participation and input!
The planning process for the Business 40 Improvement Project has been completed! Since 2007, we have been meeting together to discuss design elements, interchanges, traffic patterns, and community impacts. Your input and involvement in the planning phase was very important. NCDOT gained approval for federal funding (80%) and is ready to move forward to the Design-Build phase.

Visit the What's New page and discover the new elements the project has added as we move forward into the Design-Build phase.
Project Overview
In 2007, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) began public involvement activities associated with the beginning of the project development studies for Business 40 (also known as U.S. 421) from west of 4th Street to east of Church Street in Winston-Salem.
