Selma bypass[edit]


U.S. Route 70 Bypass
Location: Selma, North Carolina
Length: 2.8 mi[19] (4.5 km)

Established in July, 1997, US 70 Bypass is part of a rare oddity known as the four US 70s of Selma-Smithfield: US 70, US 70A, US 70 Business, and US 70 Bypass. In an effort to make the area less confusing, NCDOT opted for the Bypass designation as oppose to another business loop. The purpose of the bypass was to avoid traffic tie-ups at I-95 and US 301; the bypass itself is freeway grade with no interchanges, in which I-95 traffic has to use the unbannered US-70 to access either direction from Selma.[20][21]

In 1962, US 70A westbound was rerouted from Spring Garden and Fairground streets onto Lee and Aycock streets, in Greensboro. Around 1963, US 70A eastern terminus was truncated at O. Henry Boulevard; everything east from that point was reverted to US 70. In 1966 and again in 1968, US 70A was rerouted on various splits through downtown Greensboro. In 1969, US 70A was rerouted to use Lee Street to Murrow Boulevard, then north to Summit Avenue.

Former business loops[edit]

Pomona business loop[edit]


U.S. Route 70 Business
Location: Pomona, California


Benton city (business) loop[edit]

U.S. Highway 70C (City)
Location: Benton, Arkansas
Existed: May 13, 1959[32]–January 23, 1974[31]

U.S. Route 70C (US 70C, the "C" for "City", i.e., a business loop) formerly ran between what is now Interstate 30 (I-30) Exits 116 (Sevier & South Streets) and 118 (Congo Road) in Benton, Arkansas. Though it was largely the result of a rerouting of US 70 and US 67 from Little Rock around downtown Benton in 1955, most of which later became I-30, it was not created until 1959 after US 70 was further rerouted between Benton and Hot Springs.[32]

History

Since the place where US 67 and US 70 separated was moved by both reroutings—first in 1955 from downtown Benton to present-day I-30 Exit 117 (AR 5/AR 35) just north of downtown where the new route crossed old US 70 (now Highway 5 north of I-30 and Highway 35 south of it), then in 1959 to present-day I-30 Exit 111 (Arkansas Health Center) near Haskell—most of US 70C was actually the pre-1955 route of US 67, of which only present-day Military Road north of AR 35 was also the pre-1955 route of US 70.[33] The only exception was at the eastern end; since there was no interchange where the pre-1955 US 67/US 70 route crossed I-30 just outside Benton, US 70C used Congo Road from Military Road to present-day I-30 Exit 118.

When the rerouted US 67/US 70 was formally designated as I-30 in 1960, US 70C also became Benton's I-30 business loop. Both loops were decommissioned by 1975.[33] The entire route was taken over by the City of Benton, except for a short section of Military Road added to AR 88 to connect it with AR 35.[31]

Little Rock business loop[edit]

U.S. Highway 70B
Location: Little Rock, Arkansas to
North Little Rock, Arkansas
Existed: c. 1976–c. 2006

The segment of present U.S. 70 from where it leaves Interstate 30 at Exit 132 (University Avenue) in Little Rock, Arkansas, to I-30 Exit 141B (Broadway) in North Little Rock, was signed as U.S. 70B from the mid-1970s to the mid-2000s. It was previously the route of U.S. 70 as well as U.S. 67; it was also the I-30 Little Rock business loop until that route was deleted earlier in the 1970s.

Before U.S. 70B was created, U.S. 70 ran concurrently with I-30 from Exit 111 (Hot Springs) near Haskell to Exit 132, as it does today. Its U.S. 67 concurrency fell between two different U.S. 67 concurrencies with I-30; one (shared with U.S. 70) was from Exit 114 (then Arkansas State Hospital, now Arkansas Health Center) near Haskell to Exit 132, while the other (shared with U.S. 65 & 167) was from Exit 141B to the end of I-30 at Exit 143B (I-40), also in North Little Rock.

While U.S. 70B was active, U.S. 70 continued its concurrency with I-30 past Exit 132 to Exit 141B, where it returned to its original route. U.S. 67 also moved to I-30 when U.S. 70B was created, thus making its concurrency with I-30 continuous from Exit 114 to the end of I-30. Both concurrencies were shared with U.S. 65 & 167 beginning at Exit 138B (Pine Bluff-El Dorado, now the beginning of Interstate 530). However, many Arkansas state highway maps continued to show U.S. 70B as U.S. 67 & 70, and sometimes even as the I-30 business loop (years after it was officially deleted).

Although I-30 signs at Exit 132 still refer to University Avenue as U.S. 70B and claim U.S. 70 East continues on I-30 East, and I-30 signs at Exit 141B refer only to U.S. 70 East (U.S. 70 West formerly joined I-30 West at that exit), all signs on the business loop were changed back to U.S. 70 in the mid-2000s, thus officially truncating U.S. 70's concurrency with I-30 at Exit 132. U.S. 67 did not return to this route; it remains concurrent with I-30 from Exit 114 (and U.S. 65 & 167 from Exit 138B) to the end of I-30.

Lexington business loop[edit]


U.S. Route 70 Business
Location: Lexington, North Carolina

Location: Garner, North Carolina
Existed: 1986–1994

Established in 1986 after US 70 moved onto the Raleigh beltline. The business loop was removed in 1994 when US 70 moved back to its original route through Garner.[10]

Former temporary routes[edit]

Kirby–Lockesburg temporary route[edit]


U.S. Highway 70 Temporary
Location: KirbyLockesburg, Arkansas

U.S. Highway 70 Temporary was a designation for a route between Kirby and Lockesburg, Arkansas while a new alignment of US 70 was under construction. The designation was removed on July 18, 1956. The highway overlapped Highway 27 between Kirby and Nashville before turning onto Highway 24 (now US 371) between Nashville and the US 71 junction in Lockesburg.[34]
