It was a four lane divided highway between Emporia and Templeton before I-95 was built, so when it was widened, it served the major north-south movements.

I-95 was built around 1980 which mostly upgraded the existing US-301 alignment, though used new location between Emporia and Jarratt, and around Carson, where the old 4 lane is retained. US-301 is now a local road, most traffic is on I-95.

And with that being said the same thing will most likely occur for US-17 around Merry Hill, North Carolina.

Also, wasn't I-95 a four lane highway with at-grade intersections in Lumberton? I feel like it was but I'm not positive.

NC 4 from Gold Rock to Battleboro is also another one that looks overbuilt but nothing will be done I'm sure except for the interchange upgrades at I-95 which is happening now.
