WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - The North Carolina Department of Transportation heard from residents Thursday night who drive along Bus. 40 through downtown Winston-Salem.
"This is a comprehensive rebuild," said Pat Ivey with the NC Department of Transportation. "From the pavement to the shoulders to the bridges, all of it will be replaced."
Transportation officials held an informational meeting Thursday night to educate the public more about the project and see a 3D video showing different interchange options.
The project is not scheduled to start for another couple of years, but engineers said they want to get as much input from the public as possible.
The improvements include replacing the surface of the road, reconfiguring the entrance and exit ramps and replacing most of the bridges.
"This is an incredibly complex project," Ivey said. "This project impacts a lot of different people - a lot of different stakeholders, so we really need to hear what the people have to say."
Additional community meetings are scheduled for January.
