Route description[edit]

History[edit]

Established in 1930 as a new primary routing, from NC 27 to US 74/NC 20 (now NC 161), in Bessemer City.[2] Around 1938, it was extended southeast to its current southern terminus at the South Carolina state line, where it continues as SC 274.[3] Between 1963-68, southbound lanes along Broad Street were added on west side of tracks, in downtown Gastonia.
