Creative Corridors unveils twin arches theme for Winston-Salem's major interchanges
Crosswalks, sidewalks, landscaping and ornamental lighting will make the entire connector more appealing for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians as they find a safer, more direct route to downtown from Winston-Salem State University and Salem College.
That's the vision that was presented Tuesday in designs unveiled at a meeting of the Creative Corridors Coalition. It's a nonprofit that has been tapping community residents for how to influence the look of the roadwork that the N.C. Department of Transportation and the city of Winston-Salem will do in the next several years around downtown.
The work will include the replacement of 11 bridges along a downtown stretch of Business 40.
