Business 40 Update: Excellent Journal Article Outlines Plans & Possibilities

In case you haven't heard, the portion of Business 40 which runs through downtown Winston-Salem is going to be completely redone. Last year the community was given the opportunity to vote on whether they preferred a 2-yr complete shutdown of the interstate loop or a six-year partial close down; we/they voted overwhelmingly for the two year option. The project will begin in 2018 and will reduce the number of entrance and exit ramps onto the freeway which will have a dramatic effect on the flow, feel, and approach to the downtown area. Laura Graff and Annette Fuller discuss all this and more, including proposed design elements and information on public input meetings here.
