The number 4

In Charlotte, along Woodlawn and other various roads in that vicinity that I can't recall, there are these very large signs that have a very large 4. I couldn't see any sort of mass transit stop nearby. I was just cusrious as to what exactly they are for.

Woodlawn abruptly changes names into Runnymede.  When built, the residents did not want to be associated with woodlawn Rd.  Likewise, Wendover abruptly changes into Eastway drive when it crosses Monroe Rd. for pretty much the same reasons.  South East CLT, in those days, was exclusive.

I noticed that change. I'm glad that the City put a sign up that noted this change. I wouldn't have noticed otherwise. That is interesting info though. So are there other routes through town that use 1-3?

When i moved to Charlotte, my realtor said it was called route 4 because it is 4 miles from uptown. Also, Billy graham parkway is the only stretch that is anything more than a 4 lane road on that route.
