Route description

The freeway connects to Interstate 40 (I-40) in western Winston-Salem. It then proceeds east through Winston-Salem, and returns to I-40 just east of Kernersville near Colfax. It is sometimes signed as the East-West Expressway or the Downtown Expressway and also carries U.S. Highway 158 and North Carolina Highway 150 for various lengths and U.S. Highway 421 for its entire length. Interstate 40 (abbreviated I-40) is a major west-east interstate highway in the United States. ... Kernersville is a town located in Forsyth County, North Carolina. ...

U.S. Highway 421 is a spur of U.S. Highway 21. ...


This freeway was the original alignment of I-40, which ran through the city of Winston-Salem from 1957 until 1992, when the main route was moved onto a new bypass further south. 1957 (MCMLVII) was a common year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 1992 (MCMXCII) was a leap year starting on Wednesday. ...


Currently, the road is undergoing a major upgrade to repair and replace many of the freeway's old design flaws which include rudimentary roadbed grading, narrow ramps, and short merging areas. In the late 1990s, the locally famous "Hawthorne Curve" in downtown Winston-Salem was rebuilt, softening the curve's angle.

Another business loop of I-40 will be designated in Greensboro, when the mainline Interstate is shifted to the new Greensboro Urban Loop south of that city in 2007. It is likely that this loop will be treated as an extension of the existing Business Loop I-40, as was Interstate 85 Business through Greensboro when that former alignment of Interstate 85 (I-85) was demoted in 2004[citation needed]. Exit numbers for that route reflected a continuation of the mileage of the original Business I-85 highway from Lexington to High Point and around a two mile [3 km] hiatus along I-85 in-between sections.

One of the main purposes for rerouting I-40 around Greensboro is to bypass the old I-85/I-40 (now Business 85/I-40) interchange at Randleman Road within the city. The interchange is notable for its traffic congrestion and automobile incidents; locals often refer to this road split as "Death Valley". The six routes of Death Valley. ...


As in Winston-Salem, Business Loop I-40 in Greensboro will be a freeway for its entire length, though, again not entirely up to Interstate standards. Parts of this extension are also signed as "Preddy Boulevard" and "Fordham Boulevard".
