Future Interstate 587 (Zebulon-Greenville)

<< < (72/77) > >>

The Ghostbuster:
I think US 264 should have always terminated at US 64 in Zebulon (both at its original terminus with 64, and at its existing freeway-to-freeway junction with 64). The 1996 extension of 264 (duplexed with 64) to Interstate 440 was unnecessary, in my opinion. Likewise the former 64/264 duplex on the eastern end between Manns Harbor and Nags Head.

Greenville and Washington traffic will use US-64. Faster, less twisty and mileage.

US-64 used to approach as a directional T but it was realigned.

And for US-264 being truncated back at Zebulon, I wish NCDOT does that...

Do these narrow bridges prevent NCDOT from signing this I-587 already?

Those are the only ones I see when looking at the entire I-587 segment from I-95 to the Southwest Bypass.

Iíd imagine the larger problem is not having 87 signed to the 64/264 split yet. In my mind, the auxiliary needs to come from the parent.

Not necessarily a problem, just more that may be NCDOTís preference. That stretch wonít be upgraded until it is widened to 6 lanes, likely at the end of the decade at the earliest unless it is accelerated. Then thereís the segment of US-264 between US-64 and I-95.

NCDOT could request authorization from the FHWA today to designate the portion between I-95 and the NC-11 Bypass as I-587, given that stretch now meets interstate standards and connects to an interstate highway.
