But US 17 was rerouted off 140 and back through Wilmington. Is the eastern leg signed as anything right now?

You could have just posted again in that thread.  That way, people would have the background in one thread instead of having to find it again.

As far as I know, NCDOT has not removed the US 17 signs along the Bypass. Hopefully, they were waiting for this last segment to open to revise the signage. If so, NCDOT has the entire bypass designated as NC 140, so they would probably sign that to the east of I-40 until they get approval to put interstate shields up (they could conceivably recycle the NC 140 shields taken down from the southern end).
