The timeline for Winston-Salem's Northern Beltway is getting bumped up.   That's thanks to the 2015 state budget.

Governor McCrory noted that many road upgrades will see their construction dates moved up, because of funding in the new budget.

The final four segments of the eastern section of the beltway are among those moving ahead.  Previously, only one segment had been funded.  This will complete the Northern Beltway from US 311 to US 52.

But don't look for any improvement in local traffic soon.  Right of way work won't begin until 2018 and construction won't start for another two years.
