Estimated Cost: $


The City of Greensboro and North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plan to convert the intersection of US 421 and Neelley Road (SR 3418) to an interchange.

Currently the intersection of 421 and Neelley is an “at grade” intersection – meaning that both roads run flat along the ground.

The plans include a “half clover” interchange” means one road (in this case Neelley) will be built above the other, and you will be able to access the roads by on/off ramps.

In addition, the plans include realigning Neelley road so that it will connect with Williams Dairy Road (SR 3329).

According to the City of Greensboro’s Handout, the previous “at grade” intersection will be closed and “all properties affected by the closing of the at-grade intersections will be provided access to the proposed project.”

This is the second of two planned interchanges for this The interchange at 421 and Woody Mill Road / Company Mill Road (Project R-2612A) has already been completed.

Safety has been cited as the primary reason for this project.
