Local transportation planners are holding a second round of online meetings Wednesday and Thursday, May 13 & 14, as they continue their process of collecting public input for the update of the overall transportation plan for the Winston-Salem area over the next 25 years.

The meeting on Wednesday will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. To join Wednesday’s meeting go to and enter password 002047. Residents without access to a computer can phone in to the meeting by calling 1-646-558-8656 and inputting webinar ID number 980 6846 1394.

The Thursday meeting will be held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. To join Thursday’s meeting go to and enter password 368708, or call 1-646-558-8656 and input webinar ID number 940 2450 4310. 

Both meetings will open with a review of transportation trends in the region, followed by an opportunity for the public to ask questions and make comments about the current state of our transportation network.

Additionally, an online survey is posted at for residents to give planners their priorities and concerns about transportation in our region. The website also has a recording of the presentation and an existing conditions report with information, in map form, about congested roads, hazardous intersections and more.

The update to the Metropolitan Transportation Plan will include transportation priorities for all forms of transportation, including cars, trucks, rail, public transit, aviation, bicycle and pedestrian. It covers Winston-Salem and Forsyth County, and parts of Davie, Davidson and Stokes counties. The current plan was completed in 2015. The updated plan, to be called Making Connections 2045, will reflect changes over the past five years and go through the year 2045.
