WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded a contract for the Salem Creek Connector, which authorities say will help improve traffic flow in downtown Winston-Salem.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported that the contract is worth $68.9 million and was awarded to Blythe Construction Inc. and Parsons Brinckerhoff Inc., both of Charlotte.

The new road will reportedly go from Martin Luther King Jr. Drive to Rams Drive. The project will include building 10 bridges, primarily over parts of Salem Creek and U.S. 52.

The connector will reduce congestion and make it easier to get to U.S. 52 from Winston-Salem State University, Salem, Salem Academy and College and the Piedmont Triad Research Park.
