U-5536 Great Wagon Road

U-5536 Great Wagon Road

Preliminary Engineering Activities for this project
have been suspended.

The N.C. Department of Transportation is preparing environmental documents and engineering designs for the proposed extension of Great Wagon Road from Shallowford Road (S.R. 1001) and Lewisville-Vienna Road (S.R. 1308). The new Great Wagon Road will serve as a parallel facility to Shallowford Road and three new side street connections will be added between Shallowford Road and Great Wagon Road. 


The purpose of the project is to provide:

  • additional traveling capacity to accommodate future traffic volumes

  • connectivity improvements throughout the downtown area

  • economic development support

  • accommodations for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists

  • improved safety for all users


Vicinity Map


The new Great Wagon Road will have two travel lanes with turn lanes at some intersections, medians, 4-foot wide bicycle lanes in each direction, a 5-foot wide sidewalk on the south side, and a 10-foot wide sidewalk/multi-use path on the north side. On-street parking will be provided along the north side of Great Wagon Road. The project also includes 4 roundabouts: at the western end of the corridor where a new section of Great Wagon Road will intersect Shallowford Road; and at the eastern end of the project where Great Wagon Road intersects Lewisville-Vienna Road. Roundabouts will also be construted on Lewisville Clemmons Road at the intersection with Great Wagon Road and the intersection with Shallowford Road.

Resources for Property Owners

Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project, it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed. The following information explains right of way acquisition and answers questions about the process.
