Future Interstate 587 (Zebulon-Greenville)

Are these bridges too narrow for I-587 to be signed on it?

When looking at this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstate_Highway_standards

The bridges are too narrow. They are not 10 feet. They are 6 feet. The ones going over US-258 are fine even though they were built at the same time.


--- Quote ---Existing bridges can remain part of the Interstate system if they have at least 12-foot-wide (3.7 m) lanes with 3.5-foot (1.1 m) shoulder on the left and a 10-foot (3.0 m) shoulder on the right, except that longer bridges can have 3.5 feet (1.1 m) shoulders on both sides. For all bridges, the railing should be upgraded if necessary.

Look for a press release on I-587 in the next few days.

For some damn reason, NCDOT thinks that a 3-di MUST be signed as the same direction as it's parent, despite examples in other states proving otherwise. I wish I was making this up. :banghead:

Yup...

Since future I-87 is an odd number the route is considered a north south route and because future I-587 is a spur off that route, it’s also considered a north south route. Hope this helps!— NCDOT (@NCDOT) December 3, 2019

Pure stupidity. By their logic, if the Goldsboro Bypass had been an I-x95 instead of part of I-42, it would be signed N/S. JFC...

Guess that means I-587 shields will be going up east of I-95 now that the upgrade is done.

For what its worth, the new 2021-22 NC State Map is out and it does not show I-587, see North Carolina thread for link.
