Existed: 1979–1980

U.S. Route 64 Business (US 64 Bus) was established in 1979 when mainline US 64 was placed on new bypass north of Rosman. However, this business loop designation lasted six months before being decommissioned in 1980; reason was because request to AASHTO was denied. The routing followed US 178 into Rosman, then along Old Rosman Highway (SR 1388) to US 64, towards Brevard.[53][54][55]

Raleigh business loop[edit]


U.S. Route 64 Business
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina
Length: 7.9 mi[56] (12.7 km)
Existed: 1965–1978

U.S. Route 64 Business (US 64 Bus) was established around 1965 when mainline US 64 was placed on new freeway bypassing north of Raleigh. The business route began at the Western Boulevard interchange with US 64/US 1 and proceeded east into the downtown area, where it became Boylan Avenue. At Boylan/South intersection, US 64 turns right onto South Street, while NC 31 continues on along Boylan Avenue to Central Prison. Between Saunders Street and East Street, US 64 splits with westbound on South Street and eastbound on Lenoir Street. Continuing along East Street, it turns right onto New Bern Avenue then meeting back with US 64 at the beltline. In 1971, US 64 was split between East Street and Idlewild Avenue, with westbound on New Bern Avenue and eastbound on Edenton Street.[57] In 1973, the split was extended further west from Idlewild Avenue to the Edenton Street / New Bern Avenue split.[58] In 1978, the business loop was decommissioned with its entire routing becoming secondary roads.[59]

U.S. Route 64 Business (US 64 Bus) was established around 1968 when mainline US 64 was placed on new bypass east of Tarboro and south of Princeville; the business route followed the old alignment through both downtown areas via Main Street. In 1994, US 64 was placed on new freeway south of Tarboro, making the business loop impracticable. Majority of the business route was replaced by NC 33, with only the stretch between Western Boulevard and Northern Boulevard downgraded to secondary road.[61][62][63]
