I think the multiple-interstate method that the Triad region is using is ... bizzaire.

Hope its a needed project that was well planned. I'm wary of any mega roadway project anymore.

True. The current I-40 through Greensboro is a dreaded drive. The new road projects are long over due. These projects should have started in the mid 1980's. One reason why Greensboro was neglected for so long is because Charlotte and Raleigh were booming at the time and alot of the state transportation money went to those areas.

Yea if you live in that area north of Charlotte, I-77 to 40 is the best way to go. I didn't realize how close I-40 is to the Charlotte area along I-77
