Part of US 64 added to Interstate Highway System

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

State officials say U.S. 64 between Interstate 440 in Raleigh and Interstate 95 near Rocky Mount has been added to the future Interstate Highway System.
    
Gov. Pat McCrory and N.C. Transportation Secretary Tony Tata announced the addition at a meeting of the Regional Transportation Alliance in Cary.
    
McCrory told the meeting that the designation is critical to further economic development in the region.
    
The section of U.S. 64 between I-440 and I-540 currently meets interstate standards and will be signed as I-495. The remaining stretch between I-540 and I-95 will be signed as Future I-495 until the N.C. Department of Transportation widens the inside and outside shoulders to meet interstate standards. That work will be done as part of future reconstruction activities along the route.
