Like how this is already branded I-87 rolling in from eastern NC.   will be glad when it is flagged I-87 all the way to i-95 and beyond.   This is where some of the infrastructure money should go.

and since you don't have general highway thread I will post some photos today from the I-440 Wade Ave intersection rebuild.  This is vitally important as this intersection was way overwhelmed.

Well this from Business NC today:

NC’s newest interstate
Greenville has a new selling point for economic development: It’s now located on an interstate highway. 
The N.C. Department of Transportation announced Tuesday that U.S. 264 from Wilson to Greenville has received federal approval to become Interstate 587. The highway has been a 70 mile-per-hour freeway connecting Raleigh to Greenville for decades, but the DOT recently made upgrades to meet interstate standards. New signs will go up next year.

“Interstate connectivity is one of the most critical economic development tools in our chest and without it, many companies will simply look past all the other amazing attributes our communities can bring to bear,” Board of Transportation member Thomas Taft said in a news release.

and I saw this sign on the US 264 freeway coming from Greenville to Raleigh on Saturday.    Lets complete the rest of I-87 for this new interstate connection to I-95 from Raleigh and beyond to NE NC and Tidewater VA.
