Yeah, three out of four movements are already freeway/freeway.  Only the I-95 NB to I-295 movement isn't.
  Check out the I-14 E Bound to I-35 S Bound movement in Texas!  It has a Breezewood where you must use the freeway frontage roads of both highways to make the connection.  Maybe when I-14 becomes into more of an interstate (now just being a spur to I-35) it will get that needed direct ramp.

However, I-14 being done completely many not happen until our grandkid's are elderly, and most likely my niece, born in 2003, won't even see it completed in Texas.

What configuration will the southern Interstate 95/295 interchange be built in? Hopefully, all ramps will be on the right-hand-side. I abhor left-handed ramps.

As of June 2018, it appears to be a trumpet interchange, with favorable movements from I-295 South to I-95 South and vice versa. All ramps will be full freeway-to-freeway connections, and right side.

A ceremony was held to dedicate the section of I-295 between I-95 and Ramsey Street as the Lyndo Tippett Highway.

Nice, that's another one to November's list.

This means that NCDOT will be opening at least 23 miles of new freeway by the end of November, the 11-mile NC-11 Greenville Southwest Bypass, the 6-mile US-17 Pollocksville Bypass, and now another 6-miles of the I-295 Fayetteville Outer Loop.

In December, an additional 2 miles of the I-840 Greensboro Urban Loop is also projected to be opened.

That makes for at least 25 miles of new freeway to come by the end of the year.

Also the first segment of the Winston Salem Beltway should be complete by years end.

The first segment of the Winston-Salem Beltway will be signposted as NC 74, not Interstate 74, correct?

Yes, it will only receive the I-74 designation once it’s linked to I-74, which should be in just a couple years. The entire beltway between I-74 and the northern US-52 freeway is fully funded and mostly under construction I believe, so just about 3-5 years until Winston-Salem will have a full eastern bypass
