South Main Street Improvements (Kernersville)
NCDOT TIP # W-5510
Project Type: Street Improvements
Affected Counties: Forsyth
Estimated Cost: $ 6,391,000
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will begin improvements to a 0.35 mile area of South Main Street (SR 4315) in Kernersville. This area will include a raised median, new turn lanes, additional lane, roundabout, and intersection relocations.
The intersection of Old Winston Road and South Cherry Street near Papa John's Pizza and the Wilco Hess gas station will feature a new roundabout, while the intersection of Old Winston Road and South Main Street will be realigned further east. Improvements affect areas extending from Business 40/U.S. 421/N.C. 150 near the McDonald's to the fork at South Cherry and South Main Streets, as well as Old Winston Road from the intersection at South Main Street approaching J. Pepper's Southern Grille.
South Main Street is the major thoroughfare that serves the regional shopping center of eastern Forsyth and western Guilford counties. It also acts as one of Kernersville's primary access points to Business 40. Proponents suggest these improvements are necessary to help improve safety and relieve congestion.
