Route description[edit]

History[edit]

NC Highway 115 originally opened in 1930 running from the intersection of US 21 and US 64 in Statesville to the Wilkes-Iredell County line. By 1933, NC 115 was extended north to Old US 421/Speedway Rd, which was US 421 at the time. In 1941, was extended to the intersection of D Street and 10th Street in North Wilkesboro, which was then US 421 and NC 16. Around 1959, 115 got its first expansion to the south. NC 115 extended along US 21 and replaced 21 through Mooresville, Davidson, and Huntersville, ending at its current southern termini. Its most recent extension was between 1969 and 1982 when NC 155 was shortened by 1.0 mile (1.6 km) to its current northern termini at D Street with NC 18 and 268.[3]
