The N.C. Department of Transportation is building a multi-lane freeway that loops around the northern part of Winston-Salem.
The 34.2-mile Winston-Salem Northern Beltway will begin at U.S. 158 southwest of Winston-Salem and end at I-74/U.S. 311 southeast of the city.
About 100,000 vehicles and trucks travel through the area every day, which is more traffic than the roadways in the area are designed to handle. The Winston-Salem Northern Beltway will help alleviate congestion and enhance safety along heavily traveled routes in Forsyth County, including U.S. 421/Business 40 and U.S. 52.
The Winston-Salem Northern Beltway is divided into two parts – the Eastern Loop and the Western Loop – that are identified by the numbers assigned to them in the State Transportation Improvement Program, the N.C. Department of Transportation’s 10-year plan that identifies the funding for transportation projects throughout the state and when they are scheduled for construction.
