North Carolina Highway 904 (NC 904) is a primary state highway in the U.S. state of North Carolina. The highway parallels the North Carolina-South Carolina border as it connects Fair Bluff, Tabor City, Sunset Beach, and Ocean Isle Beach.

Description[edit]

NC 904 is a 67.5-mile (108.6 km) east–west highway (physically running northwest–southeast) that travels from NC 130 in Five Forks, to East First Street in Ocean Isle Beach. It passes through Brunswick, Columbus, and Robeson Counties.[1]

History[edit]

Established in 1937 as a renumbering of NC 761 when it was extended into South Carolina, south of Tabor City, continuing as SC 904. Around 1951, US 701 was rerouted at Tabor City, replacing NC 904 into South Carolina; its former alignment became an extension of NC 410. In 1954, NC 904 was extended west on new primary routing to its current western terminus with NC 130 in Five Forks. By 1958, NC 904 was extended onto new primary routing east to Seaside; by 1963, it was extended again to its current eastern terminus in Ocean Isle Beach.
