NC 231 is a two-lane rural highway that traverses 25.4 miles (40.9 km) from Wendell to near Spring Hope; making a "J" on the map and an awkward driving south on northbound and vice versa between Wendell and Hocutts Crossroads. With Wendell and Middlesex as the two main cities along its route, the highway passes through predominantly forest and farmland, with the occasional unincorporated community.
The current NC 231 was established in 1935 as a new primary routing from NC 39 to US 64. In 1948, NC 231 was extended west to US 64, in Wendell. In 1975, NC 231 was shifted west to its current northern terminus to accommodate the US 64 freeway; its old alignment became part of Jernigan and Cox roads.
