U.S. 29 shadows Interstate 85 from the South Carolina state line through Charlotte, Concord, and Salisbury. The two comingle across the Yadkin River through to Lexington. Sharing pavement with Business Loop Interstate 85, U.S. 29 & 70 represent the Temp Interstate 85 alignment from Lexington to Thomasville and High Point. Another overlap with Interstate 85 occurs in Greensboro before U.S. 29 turns northeast along its own expressway to Virginia. A portion of the corridor from Future Interstate 840 to Danville, Virginia is designed Future Interstate 785.
