Hopefully they will, but remember that they had problems with the mileage when they first opened NC 540. The original exit numbers between US 64 and NC 54 were about 15 miles less than they should have been. You would hope they wouldn't forget about a section of unbuilt road again.

NCDOT obviously intends to count mileage clockwise all the way around the beltway. On NC 540 the first exit south of I-40 (NC 54) is Exit 69.

yes, thats my point.

Mile markers begin going north/east at I-40, currently end at 26 (US 64). Mileage picks back up on the south end of the loop at 54 (NC 55). I am interested to see how close they get to the projected 28 miles of roadway in the actual build. If the alignment has changed at all, there will need to be a slight gap in the exit numbers, or the some/all exits will need to be renumbered. I think i know which is easier..
