My guess is that they're saving I-685 for any future upgrade of I-85 Business in Greensboro, but even that's a total shot in the dark as we speak.

That's because Greensboro got I-785.

What are they going to do with NC-147 (TOLL) south of I-40?

Though I'm not surprised that NC 147 Toll will continue as normal since NCDOT had to quickly back-peddle on I-540 south of I-40 when they decided to make all that a toll road too.  But it seems silly since NC 147 will be in concurrency with new I-885 for a section of it.  Also, I haven't seen this on their proposed route change page yet; guessing it was decided more recently and it will be something they will hopefully request this Fall to AASHTO.

This though isn't particularly novel for new 3dis in NC (785 with 840/US 29, 795 with US 264 and for a while US 117) - come to think of it, the only part of new 885 that will NOT be concurrent with another route is the East End Connector!
