Salem Creek Connector

Fast Facts

Project # U-2925
Type: Construct New Road, Bridges
Affected Counties: Forsyth


The Salem Creek Connector project will be adding a new 1.1-mile four-lane road with a median connecting Martin Luther King Jr. Drive to Rams Drive at the Piedmont Triad Research Park. This new roadway will add as many as 10 bridges over parts of Salem Creek and US 52. In addition to the new road way, a new interchange will also be built at US 52 and the current interchange located at Rams Drive will be removed.

North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has said that the connector will improve motorist and pedestrian safety by helping traffic flow more efficiently in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The connector will help reduce traffic congestion and access to US 52 from the city’s colleges, university and research park. Pedestrian safety will be improved when sidewalks are installed along the roadway at Winston-Salem State University.

There are only a handful of attorneys in NC who practice eminent domain exclusively, and even fewer with NCDOT experience. We have several. That’s why its worth getting in touch with us for a free case evaluation.

Here’s how it works:

1) Tell us about your situation.

2) We research your property as needed, using DOT maps, our own technology, and experience to see the exact effects.

3) We let you know what we think a fair offer would be. This evaluation is free, and there’s no
pressure or obligation to hire us after.

But please don’t wait to act. Waiting can hurt your case, and the cost is the same: free.
