Creative corridors coalition bridge logoCreative Corridors Coalition (CCC) is a non-profit organization formed to give Forsyth County residents a voice in influencing the design of roadway infrastructure projects (mainly bridges) around the downtown area of Winston-Salem. This is part of a project where the NCDOT plans to rebuild a one-mile stretch of Business 40 highway through the city in the coming years, with support from the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership, the Arts Council of Winston-Salem and leaders of the arts, community and political organizations. The rebuild is an opportunity for CCC to work closely with the NCDOT to “frame” downtown and reflect our city’s commitment to the arts, culture and innovation with an aesthetic infrastructure that will have a positive visual, economic and social impact on our community.

Creative Corridors Coalition Mission

The mission of the Creative Corridors Coalition is to create opportunities to incorporate community input into the design, planning, construction and maintenance process that will yield effective passageways connecting our community and appropriately reflecting the identity of this great city.

The CCC believes that elements where community input can have the most positive impact on these roadway projects include:

  • Design and visual impact, including public art
  • Economic development
  • Building social capital and enhancing quality of life in the community
  • Environmentally conscious and sustainable features
  • Strategies to accommodate pedestrian, bicycle and other alternative forms of transportation
