Winston Salem Northern Beltway (U.S. 158/Reidsville Road)
Type: New Beltway
Affected Counties: Forsyth
Estimated Cost: $60,100,000
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) is building, in several stages, a multi-lane freeway that loops around the northern part of Winston-Salem. The entire project begins at U.S. 158 southwest of Winston-Salem and ends at I-74/U.S. 311 southeast of the city for a total of 34.2 miles.
Construction has begun on the eastern portion. This particular section will begin a bit north of U.S. 158 at Reidsville Road and end just south of Old Walkertown Road - a total of 2.1 miles.
With approximately 100,000 vehicles passing through this area daily, the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway is being constructed to help meet demanding traffic needs. The purpose is to alleviate congestion and enhance safety, particularly along heavily traveled roads, such as U.S. 421/Business 40 and U.S. 52.
