North Carolina Highway 200 is a primary state highway in the state of North Carolina. The highway runs north–south from the South Carolina state line, near Jaars, to U.S. Route 601, near Concord.

Route description[edit]

NC 200 traverses 50.1 miles (80.6 km), starting at the South Carolina state line, through the city of Monroe and the towns of Stanfield and Locust, before ending at US 601 near Concord. With exception in Monroe, it is a two-lane rural highway.

History[edit]

Established in 1930, it went from Monroe, at US 74/NC 20/NC 25/NC 151, to the South Carolina state line, near Jaars, where it changed into SC 93 (renumbered to SC 200 in 1937).[2] Between 1931-36, NC 200 was realigned north of Old Highway Road near Jackson. In 1936, the highway was extended north via Franklin Street, Church Street, Winchester Street, and finally Morgan Hill Road to NC 27, in Locust. In 1942, the highway was extended again north to current terminus at NC 151 (renumbered US 601 in 1951).[3]

About 1958, NC 200 was rerouted in Monroe to follow Morrow Road and Haynes Street onto new bypass US 74/US 601, then return on Morgan Hill Road. By 1982, it had reverted to follow along Charlotte Avenue and Church Street.[3]

On August, 2011, NC 200 was rerouted northwest, on new road, around downtown Monroe. Utilizing Martin Luther King Boulevard and Dickerson Boulevard to connect with US 74. The old alignment, Lancaster Avenue and Charlotte Avenue to Franklin Street, was downgraded to secondary road. NC 75 was extended, replacing NC 200 from Franklin Street to Haynes Street, via Charlotte Avenue and Church Street. NC 207 was also extended, replacing NC 200 from Church Street to US 74/US 601 (Roosevelt Boulevard), along Haynes Street/Skyway Drive.[4]
