Business 40 Betterments

We cannot take for granted the betterments that will be included throughout the downtown corridor because of our collective efforts.

Betterments along Business 40 provide for the replacement of street lights, landscaping, railings and various other aesthetic improvements along Business 40 through downtown Winston-Salem. These improvements represent enhancements above and beyond the standard improvements that are scheduled as part of the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s upcoming work in the corridor. Betterments will improve the overall experience of moving through the corridor—whether by foot, bike or car—and they will represent a new standard for infrastructure improvements for our city and for the State of North Carolina.

The City of Winston-Salem has earmarked $3 Million in funds from the 2014 Bond Referendum toward Business 40 Betterments.
