Project Overview

The N.C. Department of Transportation  proposes to make operational and safety improvements along Lewisville-Clemmons Road from U.S. 158 (Clemmons Road) to Peace Haven Road, a distance of approximately 1.6 miles. Improvements are also proposed to the interchange of Interstate 40 and Lewisville-Clemmons Road. This project is located in the Village of Clemmons in Forsyth County, North Carolina.

The preferred alternative includes the following proposed improvements

Operational and safety improvements along Lewisville-Clemmons Road:

  • The intersections between Cook Avenue and I-40, as well as the intersection of U.S. 158, will be improved to make traffic flow better and safer.

  • Some driveways and intersections will change to right-in/right-out access.

  • A new turning lane will be added to U.S. 158 onto Lewisville-Clemmons Road.

  • A connector loop will be built on the west side of Lewisville-Clemmons Road between Stadium Drive and the shopping drive to the north to improve traffic operations.

  • Sidewalks will be added or improved on both sides of Lewisville-Clemmons Road from U.S. 158 to Peace Haven Road.

  • Retaining walls would be utilized where practical to minimize impacts. 

Improvements to the existing interchange of I-40 and Lewisville-Clemmons Road:

  • The existing I-40 bridge will be retained and sidewalks will be widened on each side to improve accessibility and mobility.

  • The existing 12-foot lanes on Lewisville-Clemmons Road through the I-40 interchange would be reduced to 11-foot lanes.

  • A free-flow northbound right-turn onto I-40 from Lewisville-Clemmons Road would be added. 

Project History

NCDOT met with the public in 2018 to present the project needs, identify potential solutions, and receive community feedback. The Project was then suspended due to funding availability in the summer of 2018. The project was re-initiated in March 2021.

In 2017, improvements to the I-40 interchange were studied for incorporation into Project U-6004 but were not added to the project until 2018. Additionally, the Clemmons Council commissioned a professor of economics at Winston-Salem State University to conduct an economic impact study in August 2018. The first public meeting was held on July 10, 2018, and a second public meeting was held on September 22, 2022.

This project is consistent with previous local plans. Sidewalk cohesiveness was included in the Clemmons Village Transportation Plan (2009), Clemmons Community Compass (2009), and Winston-Salem Urban Area Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) (2012).

Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project, it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed. The following information explains right of way acquisition and answers questions about the process.
