High Point seeks feedback for I-73/I-74 roadway plan

City officials are holding a virtual meeting seeking feedback and ideas on a proposed roadway connecting High Point to Greensboro in Jamestown.

JAMESTOWN, N.C. — High Point city officials are holding a virtual meeting on Tuesday seeking feedback from Jamestown residents on a proposed roadway connecting I-73 and I-74. The "Jamestown Bypass" aims to improve transportation between High Point and Greensboro, officials said.

Jamestown residents are invited to join a Zoom meeting Jan. 12, at 6 p.m. If you are interested in attending, you will need to register beforehand at www.highpointnc.gov/VirtualPublicMeeting

The city hopes to open the proposed roadway by 2022, officials said. The project would provide a multi-lane (ranging from 4-6 lanes), median divided roadway about two miles long connecting I-74 to Oakdale Rd.

The new roadway opens opportunities for development and redevelopment in the eastern and northeastern areas of High Point and in Jamestown, city officials said. 

The City of High Point has already conducted a land use assessment of a 1.4-square-mile area along the Greensboro Rd. and Jamestown Bypass corridors from Montlieu Ave. in High Point to the Jamestown town limits at the Deep River.
