U.S. 301

Home » Guides » North Carolina » U.S. 301

The bulk of U.S. 301 throughout North Carolina parallels Interstate 95 as a local route. Exceptions occur through Lumberton, where U.S. 301 follows the original bypass route of Downtown, which in 1961 became a part of Interstate 95. Further north, U.S. 301 overlaps with nearly the entirety of Business Loop I-95 through Hope Mills and Fayetteville. Until 1988, a lenghty portion of U.S. 301 through the Rocky Mount vicinity was also cosigned as Business Loop I-95.
