Press release today from NCDOT announcing FHWA approval. I-587 shields will go up between I-95 and Greenville sometime next year.

It's such a beautiful moment when a highway graduates to become an interstate, I'm not crying, you're crying :-(

The Ghostbuster:
I don't like the idea of designating Interstate 587 without it connecting with mainline Interstate 87 (which doesn't make it to the US 64/264 junction in Zebulon yet). I feel the same way about Interstate 369 in Texarkana, TX.

Incomplete 2di's like I-49 and I-69 have gaps; there's no reason an incomplete 3di can't have gaps as well. If there was no plan to connect I-587 to I-87 you would have a good point.
