NC 214 is an east–west state highway in eastern North Carolina; it is entirely in Columbus County.

Route description[edit]

NC 214 goes from about 1 mile east of Bolton and through the town of Lake Waccamaw. It parallels U.S. 74 and 76 along its route. It ends about 1.5 miles east of Whiteville.

History[edit]

In the 1930s, NC 214 was made as a highway through Lake Waccamaw off of U.S. 74 and N.C. 20. In the 1980s, it was rerouted so that N.C. 20 was now N.C. 214, and U.S. 74 was on another highway. However, it was shorter than it is now; it was later extended to the east and west. The original N.C. 214 is now Lake Shore Dr.

Junction list[edit]

The entire route is in Columbus County.
