Here's my meet group photo, with part of the u/c I-840 extension in the background:



From left to right: Oscar, Chris (?), Mark, Brian, Steve (in front of Brian), A.J., Collin (meet host), Cody.

I especially enjoyed taking Bryan Blvd. and Benjamin Pkwy. into downtown Greensboro, which I had managed to miss (except the part of Bryan Blvd. absorbed into I-73) on previous visits to Greensboro.

The day before the meet, I took a peek at the construction of the new I-885 in Durham. On Saturday before and after the meet, I went off the Interstates north of Greensboro, largely on NC 87 and NC 89 (clinching the latter) between Burlington and Mt. Airy. I wound up making a last-minute hotel reservation in Mt. Airy, instead of trying to do all of the six-hour drive back home on Saturday evening. I got back home Sunday evening.

The US 64 Asheboro Bypass completion date is now sometime in December 2020.

https://www.ncdot.gov/projects/us-64-asheboro/Pages/default.aspx

However, I'll need to go there in December (or whenever the bypass is fully opened to traffic), to re-clinch US 64 after having clinched the route from end to end as one of my projects this summer.

It opened yesterday, if you're still interested.

Wish I could have been a part of this one. Greensboro has a lot going on for a city it’s size.
