Dedicated thread for the smaller cities and towns around the Triangle. Had to run out to Clayton this past weekend for a car part, and drove through downtown on my way back.  Sad to see it so emp

Sanford and Lee county seem to be the manufacturing hub for the Triangle with lots of pharma companies there but close enough to Cary and Apex for their execs to live.   I agree Lee County is coming m

In the twin cities of Holly Springs and Fuquay Varina I came across this high rise the new UNC Rex Hospital in Holly Springs.   UNC Health REX Holly Springs | Holly Springs, NC (rexhealth.com)

My roots are in Chatham County and they go back to early 1700s. So anything good for Chatham Co. is good to me.

I wish NCDOT would re-prioritize getting 64 and 264 from Knightdale to I-95 upgraded to Interstate grade.

The projects keep getting pushed out. It's time to be bring the focus back to the economic engines of the state!  (I mean, the south 540 project is great, but it's a dang toll!)

US 64 is a freeway all the way from I-440 in Raleigh to I-95 and some parts are marked as I-87.   Dittos for US 264 towards Wilson it is a freeway but not quite interstate standards yet but it will be I-42 I think.

Here's a diagram of future Interstates for NC.  It has errors like missing the connection of I-87 from I-95 to the split of 87/587.  Also omits south 540, I-885 in Durham, the Monroe bypass, and the Greensboro northern loop.

Pretty sloppy! heh  But still better than anything else out there.    It's pretty cool seeing 87 to north and 42 out to the coast.  And 795 providing a major upgrade for north bound transit from Wilmington.

Meanwhile, no direct interstate connections between Asheville and Charlotte or Charlotte and Wilmington?
