Interstate 74 (I-74) is an Interstate Highway that is partially completed in the U.S. state of North Carolina. Currently in three distinct segments, when completed, it will traverse the state in a southeasterly direction from Virginia to South Carolina, connecting the cities of Winston-Salem, High Point, Asheboro, Rockingham, and Lumberton.
The first section of I-74 begins at the Virginia state line (overlapped with I-77 for approximately 4 miles (6.4 km). After separation, it goes east and connects to US 52 near Mount Airy, where the first section ends.
I-74 is to be routed along US 52 from Mount Airy to Bethania, where it will then separate onto the new Winston-Salem Northern Beltway and go east around Winston-Salem before connecting to existing US 311 south of Kernersville. Under a new accelerated construction plan for the Beltway, right-of-way acquisition began in 2012 and construction started in December 2014. Until construction is completed, travelers wanting to connect between the first and second section of I-74 should stay on US 52 through downtown Winston-Salem, and then take I-40 east to I-74 East/US 311 south towards High Point.
The second section of I-74 extends along the US 311 freeway from the intersection with I-40 in Southeastern Winston-Salem to High Point. This section was designated despite not having 10-foot shoulders, with the promise that shoulders would be widened later. Signs were installed by August 2014. This section connects directly to another section, called the High Point East Belt. It connects High Point with both I-85 Business and I-85. Construction recently completed June 7, 2013 extended the freeway an additional 8 miles to US 220/I-73 at mile marker 86 in Randleman.(Highway was to originally be completed by October 2012).
I-74 joins with I-73/US 220 South in Randleman going south to Asheboro. The freeway is already completed, but was not allowed to be signed as a full interstate until the segment through Asheboro was upgraded to interstate standards in December 2013. The fourth section of I-74 (and I-73) starts along a bypass of Asheboro where a project to improve US 220 to interstate standards was completed, and interstate signs went up in 2012.
Interstate 74 continues concurrently with I-73 and US 220 between I-73 mile markers 68-42 (26 miles (42 km)), the first section marked as I-74 (and I-73) in North Carolina in 1997. It continues south bypassing the towns of Seagrove, Biscoe and Candor. Visitor centers (completed in 2010) are located eastbound and westbound at mile marker 61. After Exit 41 U.S. 220 leaves the freeway, the route continues as I-73, I-74 for another 16 miles (26 km) towards Rockingham. Though this part of I-73/I-74 was completed in 2008 and is up to interstate standards, it was initially signed as a future interstate route because it been accepted into the Interstate system by the FHWA by the time it was opened, necessitating the posting of future shields. This situation was remedied on July 7, 2011 when the FHWA approved the addition of this segment to the interstate system. The route was finally signed as Interstates 73 and 74 in the fall of 2013.
At Rockingham, Future I-73 and I-74 will separate from current US 220 along a to-be-built bypass around the west of the city and then join the existing US 74 bypass freeway, which goes south around Rockingham and Hamlet. The first section of the Bypass, four miles of upgraded US 220, is under construction with a planned completion date of March 2018.  Future I-73 ends near the NC 38 exit where it is planned to be routed south into South Carolina. Future I-74 continues to the end of the freeway. Between Hamlet and Laurinburg is an at-grade expressway that will eventually be upgraded to Interstate standards. At Laurinburg, I-74 is to use the Laurinburg Bypass was at the standard North Carolina freeway grade and signed as I-74 in 2008; however, NCDOT had to remove the signage the following year when FHWA ruled against using them until the freeway was up to Interstate standards.
The third section of I-74 is officially named the American Indian Highway, completed in 2008, this (19 miles (31 km)) section stretches from Maxton to south of Lumberton, connecting with I-95/US 301. After NC 41, I-74 ends for the final time as the highway continues on as an at-grade expressway signed as US 74/Future I-74 Corridor.
East of Interstate 95
Future I-74 is to continue to follow US 74, going through the city of Whiteville and bypassing the town of Lake Waccamaw. While there are no funded projects to upgrade the entire highway to interstate standards, NCDOT is funding several smaller projects to replace intersections with interchanges for several of the remaining cross streets, including for NC 72/NC 130 north of Boardman and replacing other intersections with grade separations, such as with Old US 74 near Evergreen over the next ten years. Before the town of Bolton, it will separate from US 74 onto a proposed new freeway towards Shallotte, then go west on the proposed extension of the Carolina Bays Parkway into South Carolina. This entire section of I-74 is still under a Feasibility Study with several possible routing options, it thus may take years before connecting South Carolina. Current NCDOT plans suggest that construction may not begin until after 2020, and that this will likely be the last section of I-74 to be completed.
Though the highway is commonly known as "I-74" throughout the state, the highway does have other known names it uses locally in areas.
- American Indian Highway – official name of the 19 miles (31 km) section of I-74 in Robeson County (mile marker 191-213). It is named to honor the large American Indian population in Robeson County.
- Blue Star Memorial Highway – unofficial North Carolina honorary name of Interstate 74 in Randolph County (dedicated on June 7, 2013).
- High Point East Belt – road name in Guilford County.
The Intermodal Surface Transportation and Efficiency Act (ISTEA) of 1991 initially authorized the new high priority transportation corridor 5, tentatively known as Interstate 73, to travel from Michigan to South Carolina. Because of several disputes to the routing, a compromise was reached in 1995, by Senator John Warner and Senator Lauch Faircloth, that extended Interstate 74 from its then current eastern terminus of Cincinnati, Ohio to overlap Interstate 73. In Virginia, I-74 would follow I-77 into North Carolina, while I-73 would go east to Roanoke then south along US 220 towards Greensboro. However, when I-73 crossed a border between two states, the federal law authorizing the road required that the two states agree that their sections meet. Originally, both Carolinas selected a route running south from Rockingham, North Carolina. North Carolina had more money to spend on roads, though, and on May 10, 1995, the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee approved North Carolina's plan for I-73 to run eastward to the coast and enter South Carolina at North Myrtle Beach. Another compromise, between Senator Lauch Faircloth and Senator Strom Thurmond, agreed to have both interstates enter South Carolina: I-73 south of Rockingham and I-74 south of Wilmington. After later amendments and the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century of 1996 (TEA-21), on July 25, 1996, AASHTO accepted Interstates 73/74 into the Interstate Highway System within the states of South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.
The 12.6 miles (20.3 km) portion from south of Steeds north to south of Ulah was completed August 27, 1996, and was the first road marked as I-74 (and I-73). Future signage was also installed north to the Greensboro area. The remainder of 26 miles (42 km) of existing and new freeway between Ulah and Candor was also signed as I-73/I-74 along US 220. In 1998, NC 752, a freeway spur of I-77 was renumbered as the segment of completed I-74, from I-77 to US 601. On June 30, 1999, the freeway was extended an additional 5 miles (8.0 km) to US 52, south of Mount Airy. In April 2001, I-74 was overlapped with I-77 from the Virginia state line to exit 101.
On January 2008, an 16.8-mile (27.0 km) section of freeway was completed from Candor to Ellerbe; however, it was signed Future I-73/I-74. On November 22, 2010, a 14-mile (23 km) section (known as the East Belt) was added between North Main Street in High Point to Cedar Square Road near Glenola. This also includes the 6.4 miles (10.3 km) section of new freeway that opened between I-85 Business Cedar Square Road. On October 4, 2012, I-74 was extended west from High Point to Interstate 40, in Winston-Salem.
On June 7, 2013, Interstate 74 extended 8 miles (13 km) east onto new primary routing from Cedar Square Road to I-73/US 220, near Randleman. Continuing in concurrency with I-73/US 220, it now connects two segments of the interstate from Winston-Salem to Candor.
The American Indian Highway and Laurinburg Bypass
On September 26, 2008, a 19 miles (31 km) section of I-74/US 74 was opened between Maxton to NC 41 near Lumberton, known as the American Indian Highway. The Laurinburg Bypass was also resigned I-74/US 74 at the same time. The following year the Laurinburg Bypass was removed of its I-74 designation by NCDOT, during the Summer, after a ruling from the FHWA (it was re-signed as a Future I-74 Corridor). The reason was that the section, though a freeway by North Carolina standards, it was not up to Interstate standards. It was also at this same time that NCDOT fixed an exit number error along mile markers 181-191.
North Carolina Highway 752
|Location:||Pine Ridge, North Carolina|
|Length:||1.0 mi (1.6 km)|
North Carolina Highway 752 (NC 752) was the designation of the four-lane limited access highway that traversed from Interstate 77 to NC 89, near Pine Ridge. Established in 1994, it was a 1-mile (1.6 km) freeway spur. In 1998, the freeway was extended to US 601 and was renumbered as Interstate 74. Its short four-year existence was simply to be a placeholder for I-74.
From Mount Airy to Rural Hall, US 52 is planned to be upgraded to interstate standards. However it is currently flagged "Scheduled for Reprioritization," with no estimated cost or date established.
The eastern section of the proposed Winston-Salem Northern Beltway is planned to carry I-74 around Winston-Salem to existing freeway portion of US 311 towards High Point. Currently parts of the project have been funded, with the first section to be built connecting US 158 to Business Interstate 40 starting construction in December 2014, with total estimated cost of $190 million. A bond issue being placed before North Carolina voters in the fall of 2015 would, if approved, fund construction of the remainder of the Beltway.
The Western Rockingham Bypass, from US 220 Alt, near Ellerbe, to US 74/US 74 Bus. interchange. Currently all right-of-way purchases have been completed along the proposed route, with construction beginning in 2014 (delayed from June 2013) on upgrading US 220 north of Rockingham. The remaining sections of the new bypass are currently scheduled to begin construction in late 2017; however, it is subject to reprioritization.
The Rockingham-Hamlet Bypass to Laurinburg Bypass is planned to be upgraded to interstate standards. However it is currently flagged "Scheduled for Reprioritization," with no estimated cost or date established.
A proposed new freeway in Columbus and Brunswick counties would traverse from Whiteville to the Carolina Bays Parkway in South Carolina. However it is currently flagged "Scheduled for Reprioritization," with no estimated cost or date established.
