FUTURE I-785 REIDSVILLE, NC
The conversion of US-29 to Interstate 785 is a critical infrastructure upgrade that will benefit the City of Reidsville including continued growth in industrial, commercial/retail and residential development. The presence of a “blue shield” will be a major factor in Reidsville’s continued growth. The interstate will also provide enhanced connectivity to the Greensboro metro area and other cities in the Triad and beyond. Perhaps the most important part of the I-785 project is its connectivity to I-840, Greensboro’s northern beltway, scheduled for completion within the next year. Interstate 840 will tie directly into the Piedmont Triad International Airport and its relation to I-785 will place Reidsville as a legitimate “sub-market” for suppliers of the growing aviation industry at PTI.
As the map indicates, the conversion of interchanges will begin in 2020.
In addition to I-785, other key transportation routes are on the NCDOT’s schedule for future enhancement including the Reidsville 158 Corridor. Highway 158 is a major thoroughfare traveling east/west through Reidsville.
