I was surprised when NCDOT kept 264's exit numbers since interstates are supposed to take priority in the event of an overlap with a state or US route. :hmm:

I would read that as they planned to use it for the 587/595 corridor?

My assumption would be the exit numbers for I-587. Them keeping US-264ís numbers when I-795 was assigned was logical, given itís the main route. I-795 merely uses US-264ís pavement to reach its independent section. The same will apply when I-587 is designated officially.

WashuOtaku:
I reached out to NCDOT a few weeks ago in regards of I-587 and what might happen to US 264. I got a response today that they are indeed planning to submit a rerouting to US 264 and a elimination of US 264 ALT in the AASHTO Fall Meeting. They were even kind enough to share the draft files they plan to use in the upcoming meeting.

In the requests, they will relocate US 264 along existing US 264 Alt from Exit 51 south through Saratoga and Farmville, then in Greenville it will connect onto NC 11 Bypass north, a total of 26.43 miles relocation; that section of US 264 Alt will be eliminated.

The timeline after that depends on other factors, but they hope to have I-587 and US 264 signage done in 2022.

^ Thatís good news to hear. Hopefully theyíre planning similarly for the remainder portions of I-587 and all of I-87 in the future, to have the US highway re-routed onto its original alignment as the interstate takes over the mainline.

Presumably, that will mean the installation of I-587 exit numbers, at least along the signed section east of I-95 at the same time the new signage is installed.
