Yes, your understanding is correct. Interstate 40 has been routed back onto its original route through downtown Greensboro.

I'm surprised you didn't mention Interstate/Future 73, which also enters the mix on the western portion of the beltway between Interstate 85 and Interstate 40 at Exit 212...

^^ You know, I saw that (Future I-73) on the Urban Loop page, but I didn't know where it started. It seemed to just appear out of nowhere (lol).

Thanks for the confirmation.


Be well,

Bryant

Dude, I live in Statesville, and use the temp alignment of I-40 to get to my mother's house in Haw River (between Greensboro and Raleigh) all the time.  I hate Death Valley, and the speed is 65mph on the entire "bypass" of I-73 to I-85.  I don't think it's that much further.

Chris:
Isn't the I-73/I-74 to be rerouted via High Point across US 311? It would connect to the US 220 near Randleman. But what number does the Randleman - Greensboro section get? Just US 220?

The 2009 RandMcNally map says I-40 is still taking the southern bypass. I guess they aren't sure either.

Okay, thank you.

The complaints about noise from residents along the southwest side of the loop was a red herring.  The real reason why I-40 was moved back onto its previous route through Greensboro was so that NCDOT wouldn't lose Interstate Maintenance funds.

Bryant5493 says:
So, with the Business Interstate designation, NCDOT wouldn't be able to keep the Interstate Maintenance funds?


Be well,

Bryant
