The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded a contract for a portion of work along the Eastern Section of the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway project.

The $43 million project will include widening, grading, drainage work, signing and new bridges along a 1.9 mile section of the beltway (Future I-74) from U.S. 311 to U.S. 158.

“Once complete this work will help accommodate future growth by alleviating congestion and improving safety along heavily traveled routes in Forsyth County, including U.S. 421/Business 40 and U.S. 52,” said Division Nine Engineer Pat Ivey.

E.S. Wagner Company LLC. of Piedmont, South Carolina is the contractor for the project.

Work can begin as early as January 2018, with final completion, including landscaping, anticipated for November 2021.

This was one of nine road and bridge projects recently awarded by the department. They were worth about $275.3 million, about $12.7 million under engineer estimates.

A contract has been awarded for the next 3 sections of the eastern half of the beltway.

The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded a contract for the D, E and F portions of work along the Eastern section of the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway project.

The $120 million project will include widening, drainage work, signing and structure improvements along a 6.9 mile section of the beltway (Future I-74) from University Parkway to New Walkertown Road.

“Once complete this work will help accommodate future growth by alleviating congestion and improving safety along heavily traveled routes in Forsyth County,” said Division Nine Engineer Pat Ivey.

Work can begin as early as Monday, April 30, with final completion, including landscaping, anticipated for July 2022.

Eventually, the Beltway will provide a 34-mile multi-lane freeway around the northern side of Winston-Salem. The rest of the eastern section of the Beltway will connect U.S. 311 southeast of the city to U.S. 52, and will become a part of the I-74 corridor when finished. The western section will continue around to U.S. 158 on the southwestern side of the city.

The Beltway will reduce traffic congestion and provide interstate connectivity to I-40 and I-40 Business for such Forsyth County towns as Clemmons, Tobaccoville, Walkertown and Rural Hall, and provide residents better access to job and educational opportunities outside of their communities.

Flatiron Constructors Inc. of Colorado is the contractor for the project.

This was one of 16 road and bridge contracts recently awarded by the N.C. Department of Transportation. Per state law they went to the lowest qualified bidder for each project. The contracts are worth $429.7 million, nearly $39 million under engineer estimates.

Boom! Let's get this thing built and open to U.S. 52 North! Does anyone know anything about a proposed Kernersville Loop?

That interchange at Bus 40 and Big Mill Farm is badly needed. Sucks it won't happen for several years.

Preparation work for road paving operations will require several lane closures on Business 40 on the east side of Winston-Salem through next week.

The work will take place between Hastings Hill Road and South Main Street, where a section of the future beltway around the city is expected to open later this year.

Drivers who want to avoid this span of Business 40 while closures are in place are encouraged to use N.C. 66, Interstate 40 and U.S. 52 as alternative routes.

The first closure will be a lane on the eastbound side from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, April 18.

Remaining closures are scheduled as follows:

​An eastbound lane, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24. This will allow the contractor to remove portable concrete barrier wall.

An eastbound lane, from 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 24 until 5 a.m. the following morning, for pavement marking.

An eastbound lane, from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 25, to repair concrete slab.

A westbound lane, from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, April 26, for additional concrete slab repair.

Much of this work is weather dependent and would be rescheduled because of rainy conditions. Drivers who travel through the work zone during the closures should slow down and be on the lookout for signage marking one-lane traffic patterns.
