May 11, 2020

Local transportation planners are holding online a meeting Thursday, May 20, 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 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. To join Wednesday’s meeting go to and enter password 804117. Residents without access to a computer can phone in to the meeting by calling 1-646-558-8656 and inputting webinar ID number 984 2914 6590.

The meeting 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.
