Starting north of Washington, along US 17, this two-lane rural highway travels through the farmland of Beaufort and Martin Counties, ending in downtown Jamesville.
Established as a new primary routing in 1936 and has not changed since. However, it had existed previously in the late 1920s to late 1934 from Lenoir to Edgemont; it was replaced by NC 90.
