So, it seems that I-26 has gained some new 'official' mileage.

It's no longer 'Future' between Exits #9 & #13 per signage.

Between Exits 11 & 13 going 'SB' ('EB'):
May '13, no I-26 shield.
Apr '18, I-26 now there.

But, then again, same segment, but instead going 'NB' ('WB'):
No I-26 shield here, at any historical StreetView capture.

Then we have between Exits 9 & 11 going 'SB':
May '13, no I-26 shield.
Apr '18, now I-26 shield is there, plus the US-19/23 shields have been shifted a little bit farther south to join it.
(no corresponding shields going the other direction between these two exits)


Also, if you look down at the crossroad @ Exit 13, you're greeted with the following from Sep '21 imagery clearly showing this is the end of the 'official' I-26 right now:

I-26 looks Interstate standard from EXIT 13 to EXIT 9 now.  Must have improved the shoulders.  South of EXIT 13, the shoulders are minimal--enough to fit rumble strips on.

NCDOT is about to resurface the main street in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. It is a long-standing tradition to schedule Chapel Hill projects in the summer, when there are many fewer students and faculty in town. And it is also traditional that these projects somehow don't quite get completed before classes begin in the fall.

I thought this day would never come.  I was headed to Burlington via the northern bypass of Mebane early last week and was surprised to see new signage for NC-119 northbound from Stagecoach Road.  That stretch was not yet open but looked like it was complete.  There was no signage for NC-119 southbound there as of Tuesday, May 17.  I'm wondering if that short stretch opened a few days early?
