North Carolina Highway 134 (NC 134) is a primary state highway in the U.S. state of North Carolina. The 19.3-mile (31.1 km) highway provides a more direct route between Troy and Asheboro, via I-73/I-74/US 220 or US 220 Bus.

Route description[edit]

NC 134 is a predomently two-lane rural highway that begins in downtown Troy at the intersection of North Main Street and East Main Street. Going north, it travels next to Denson Creek Golf Course before becoming the eastern edge of the Uwharrie National Forest. A couple of times the national forest goes over the eastern side of the road but not many. At Beane Country Road, the Uwarrie Forest finally goes west of the road as the road continues north. At Dawson Miller Road, NC 134 ends, just 600 feet (180 m) from the I-73/I-74/US 220 interchange.

History[edit]

NC 134 was established in 1966 as a new primary route along existing secondary roads; from NC 109 Bus, in Troy, to US 220, south of Ulah.[2] In 1974, it was extended south, overlapping with NC 109 Bus, to its current terminus with NC 24/NC 27/NC 109 Bus.[3]
