The Greensboro Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is inviting public comments on a proposed amendment and revisions to the Thoroughfare and Collector Street Plan. The amendment would remove a planned widening and construction of a bypass for US 158 between Piney Grove Road and I-73/US 220 in Stokesdale.

Members of the public have until 5 p.m., April 30 to submit comments in writing on whether to retain or remove the future planned project. Comments will also be accepted at a public hearing during the May 8 virtual meeting of the MPO Transportation Advisory Committee. Registrion is required online.

The draft thoroughfare and collector street plan amendment is available for review online at www.guampo.org. Send comments to Engineering Supervisor Lydia McIntyre via survey, email, fax to 336-412-6171, or mail to PO Box 3136, Greensboro, NC, 27402-3136.

The thoroughfare and collector street plan is designed to balance future development with future planned roadways. The US 158 widening and bypass was proposed to divert increasing traffic from the Town of Stokesdale.

The Greensboro metropolitan planning area includes the City of Greensboro, the majority of unincorporated Guilford County, and the towns of Oak Ridge, Pleasant Garden, Sedalia, Stokesdale, and Summerfield.
