--- Quote from: WashuOtaku on August 27, 2021, 10:42:46 PM ---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.

I didn't think NCDOT would do it, but I'm glad they are. Hopefully, AASHTO will approve it. Now if NCDOT will just sign I-587 as E/W...

I think they will. I find it hard to believe that they'll put US-264 back on it's old alignment east of Wilson, but leave it as is west of it once I-587 reaches Zebulon.

If it happens, that also means the pointless 64/264 overlap will go bye-bye. I'm all for it.

I doubt it will go any further east than Wesley Church Rd. That part of highway sucks and is only two-lanes and gets BUSY.

It DOES get busy!

540 is an even number yet it's signed as a N-S route. So, why not for I-587?
