We have traveled through there multiple times while construction has been going on and it will hopefully be nice when done. The lane shifts and bad pavement have been challenging. It's difficult to tell what lanes will go where, although adding more lanes on I-77 through Statesville is A Good Thing.

The AASHTO 2023 Annual Meeting Minutes have been posted online and here are North Carolina's requests:


--- Quote ---Item 17: North Carolina, US 1
Action: Deletion of route Vote: Approve
Description: US 1 in Franklin County, Southwest of Franklinton, going north along
US 1 Alternate through the town of Franklinton. The route is traveling on a two-
lane, undivided facility with a portion of the route traveling through the central
business district of Franklinton, where on-street parking exists. The route is
approximately 2.7 miles in length and ends at US 1 in Franklin County, north of
Franklinton.
--- End quote ---

Say goodbye to US 1A through Franklinton.


--- Quote ---Item 18: North Carolina, US 70
Action: Relocation of route
Description: US 70 is proposed to be relocated due to approval of I-42 along an
existing portion of US 70 between I-40 and US70 Business. The route is going
along existing US 70 Business in Wake and Johnston Counties. The route is
traveling along a multi-lane, divided facility going through the municipalities of
Garner and Clayton. The route will cover approximately 11.88 miles, and will end
at US 70/US 70 Business interchange.
--- End quote ---

US 70 is moving back on part of its former route for I-42.


--- Quote ---Item 19: North Carolina, US 70B
Action: Deletion of route Vote: Approve
Description: US 70 Business is proposed to be eliminated as part of the relocation
of US 70. The route begins at I-40/US 70 interchange in Garner. The route is
traveling along a multi-lane, divided facility, going east through the municipalities
of Garner and Clayton. The route is approximately 11.88 miles, and ends at the US
70/US 70 Business interchange south of Clayton in Johnston County.
--- End quote ---

With US 70 moving back on its old alignment, there is no room for US 70 Business, at least between Garner and Clayton; Smithfield segment will remain.

Any surprises here or as expected?

I know South Carolina likes naming interchanges, but I do not recall seeing this in North Carolina (maybe I am just not paying attention).
