City transportation planners will hold a drop-in information session Tuesday, June 12, to give citizens a look at proposed improvements to Peters Creek Parkway that would reduce the road to four lanes to make room for sidewalks, bike lanes and other improvements.
The session will be held from 4 to 7:30 p.m. in the cafeteria at Diggs-Latham Elementary School, 968 Hutton St. Citizens may stop by at their convenience to view the designs and talk with city staff and project team members.
As part of the proposed improvements, the existing six-lane roadway would be reduced to four lanes between Business 40 and Silas Creek Parkway. Other improvements could include sidewalks, landscaping, bike lanes and a pathway. Roundabouts at Academy Street and Link Road are also being considered.
Transportation planners have been working with the Peters Creek Community Initiative group and local stakeholders to develop an improvement plan that is compatible with the goals and vision of the Southwest Area Plan and other neighborhoods in the area.
Those who attend will learn why this study was initiated, background information about the area, previous and current plans that impact this study and various design concepts being considered.
Requests for auxiliary aids and services to review the documents should be made to Greg Errett, P.O. Box 2511, Winston-Salem, NC 27102, or by phone to 747-6871.
