Oops. I meant it say it would be the first time that two 2d interstates with the same number that don't connect would also have the same numbered 3di. Ex. I-684 only exists on the eastern I-84 and not the western one.

It was AASHTO. See pages 7 & 8:

Well then I guess I-587 is here to stay

--- Quote from: orulz on November 15, 2016, 08:57:22 PM ---As for bridges between Sims and Zebulon- what are the clearances? The bridges look fairly modern to me, so it can't be by much. (A foot or less, perhaps.) Might the easiest solution be to just lower the road by a foot or so on either side of the overpasses?

NCDOT Secretary Nick Tennyson brought up the issue of bridge clearances during a radio interview in September. The bridges between Sims and Zebulon are older than those between I-795 and Greenville.

As you mentioned, the bridges aren't that much lower. I agree that NCDOT will probably lower the highway rather than replace the bridges. That's what they're currently doing on I-85 between Henderson and the Virginia state line.
