The NCDOT press release is poorly written in regards to future segments of the Fayetteville Outer Loop, here's what I found out via some research on the NCDOT website

To Open in Summer of 2022:

A short 1 mile segment from Raeford Rd (US 401) to Century Circle

Also in Summer of 2022: The southern segment from I-95 to Camden Road

(This will create a hole in the loop from Century Circle to Camden Road)

To Open in Summer 2026: (assuming construction starts in Summer 2022)

The last section of the loop from Century Cir to Camden Rd, then the loop will be fully complete!

speaking of sections, why is it impossible to find public meeting design maps on the loop :confused:

I've posted photos taken along the newly opened section courtesy of David Johnson, they include construction that continues at the current end of I-295 South:

I find some loopholes to bypass the paywall warning by using Archive.today and/or the Wayback Machine. Sometimes that work, sometimes that don't work

On Google, I’ll usually just disable Flash and JavaScript, and it works most of the time.

I got around that paywall by going incognito on Chrome. Works for me in most cases, though usually I'll have to enable cookies for it to work.

I've tried this, and while I have success on some sites, others will immediately detect Incognito mode.

Nice. You still have the dates wrong on most of my pictures, though.

I recently got a hold of the construction plans for the I-95–Camden Road section of the loop, and confirmed some suspicions about them by contacting NCDOT:

First, section A (I-95–Camden Road) actually stops just short of Camden Road. Section B (Camden Road–US 401) includes the Camden Road interchange and extends up to the current stub at US 401. Apparently the original intention was to build sections A and B at roughly the same time, but because section B was delayed, delayed, and most recently delayed some more, section A will be finished before B even starts construction. Because of this, section A will effectively end at Black Bridge Road, the second interchange after I-95 and the last before Camden Road. The signage plans seem to have been designed on the assumption that section B is already open, so I'm not sure if the signs pointing north from Black Bridge Road will be installed and covered up, or if they'll adjust plans to properly indicate the temporary end of the road there (including temporary striping and the "ALL TRAFFIC EXIT" sign banners)

Second, section A will unsurprisingly only be signed as NC 295 since it's discontinuous from the rest of the Interstate. Interestingly, the plans for section CA (US 401–Cliffdale Road, which I also obtained) also indicate NC 295 signage, but that segment opened fully signed as I-295.

NCDOT has awarded a contract to replace all NC-295 signs with I-295 shields. Work can begin in August and is expected to be complete by next spring.

I just thought of something. When NC's I-295 is finally signed and everything's official, almost all of the states with I-95 children will include an I-295. CT will be the only exception.

You can add Georgia and South Carolina to your list with Connecticut..

Georgia, South Carolina, and New Hampshire do not have I-x95 routes.  CT has I-395.

I-295 was already the most common 3di number, so that makes sense.

I would have thought that North Carolina would have held out resigning NC 295 as Interstate 295 until the whole route was completed. Personally, I think it should have been signed as Interstate 295 from the get-go.

They didn't sign I-540 NC-540, so why I-295?

different scenarios. the southern half of 540 is a toll road, and apparently can’t be signed as an interstate because of that

^ Strawman argument.  Federal law does allow new toll roads (which 540 basically is) to be signed as Interstates.

So, NCDOT can sign NC-540 I-540 if they wanted to?
