I wish the solo I-85 section in Orange would get attention first. Its narrow and has several substandard ramps. I-40 is okay being 4 lanes total for the time being; at least its already built to modern geometry standards.

It has to do with traffic volumes.

I-40 gets up to 64,000 AADT on the 4 lane section, I-85 only gets up to 46,000 AADT.

Ultimately, both corridors should be expanded to at least 6 lanes, but I-40 is a higher demand.

Third summer taking photos of the Wade Ave. bridge being constructed at I-440.



In addition to being a tight radius, the future ramp to I-440 looks like it will be rather steep.... I'm guessing they will start to build up the grade a bit beneath the overpass.

Upcoming public meetings for widening I-85 in Gaston County north/east of US 321. New project maps are available here. Estimated construction 2024-2030.

Mr. ENC:
Idk if this has been posted but the exit numbers from 264 have been changed to match the new I-587 starting at the US 64 exit, even tho I-587 is only signed up to I-95.
