North Carolina - January 2, 2010

Cutting a new path through North Carolina from US 1 south of Rockingham, up US 220 (and I-73/74) to Greensboro, then US 29 into Virginia.


Our first welcome on US 1 North. [Crop/Zoom: 812x806]

[Crop/Zoom: 414x956]

And then a second welcome. [Crop/Zoom: 1561x664]

Neat old Mountain Dew sign. [Larger: 1744x1308]

We will cross but not get on the 74's here. [Crop/Zoom: 438x408]

[Larger: 1744x1308]

We continue on US 1 to the southern terminus of US 220. [Crop/Zoom: 499x457]

[Crop/Zoom: 953x349]

[Crop/Zoom: 729x562]

[Crop/Zoom: 851x595]

Starting our way up US 220. [Crop/Zoom: 657x644]

Crossing Business 74. [Crop/Zoom: 1075x990]

It's a strawberry shop that looks like a strawberry. [Crop/Zoom: 1144x470]

[Crop/Zoom: 381x408]

It's not obvious to me why this stretch is still Future I-73/74 and not the real thing yet. [Crop/Zoom: 851x760]

We'll get off here in search for gas. Being a new interstate corridor, there's not much built up yet near most of the exits. [Crop/Zoom: 670x746]

[Crop/Zoom: 585x891]

[Crop/Zoom: 624x729]

So we head into town. [Larger: 1744x1308]

[Crop/Zoom: 539x680]

Candor. [Larger: 1744x1308]

You can get everything at Kristi's. [Larger: 1744x1308]

Then back to 73/74. [Crop/Zoom: 482x970]

Here's the start of the actual I-73/74 stretch. [Crop/Zoom: 437x844]

[Crop/Zoom: 252x336]

[Crop/Zoom: 595x516]

[Crop/Zoom: 709x838]

[Crop/Zoom: 890x730]

Then a bit further north, they're "future" again. [Crop/Zoom: 884x1137]

[Crop/Zoom: 1225x973]

[Crop/Zoom: 2179x480]

Lots of construction here for the new US 311 connection. [Crop/Zoom: 674x464]

And Future I-74 ends. [Crop/Zoom: 180x223]

And now it's just US 220 and Future I-73. [Crop/Zoom: 729x454]

Getting close to Greensboro and I-85. [Crop/Zoom: 1680x776]

[Crop/Zoom: 2216x953]

[Crop/Zoom: 1015x490]

[Crop/Zoom: 578x861]

[Crop/Zoom: 1597x539]

It seems very odd to me to route a business interstate along another actual interstate. [Crop/Zoom: 894x809]

[Crop/Zoom: 2577x917]

On the way out of Greensboro on this far-from-interstate-standard stretch of freeway. [Crop/Zoom: 453x635]

[Crop/Zoom: 1121x943]

[Crop/Zoom: 989x772]

Lots of work to do near Greensboro before this can become a reality. But further north, the road is great. [Crop/Zoom: 703x378]

What else is up here? [Crop/Zoom: 1571x1016]

[Crop/Zoom: 1716x733]

[Crop/Zoom: 877x949]

[Crop/Zoom: 312x556]

[Crop/Zoom: 1314x1347]

[Crop/Zoom: 739x661]

[Crop/Zoom: 346x690]

[Crop/Zoom: 700x848]

[Crop/Zoom: 1222x657]

[Crop/Zoom: 1091x819]

Just about to Virginia. [Crop/Zoom: 1502x739]
