U.S. 264 designated as 'future interstate'
GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - The Federal Highway Administration has approved making U.S. 264 a future interstate.
Governor McCrory's office says the four-lane highway, between Greenville and Zebulon, will be known as Future Interstate 587.
"Designating U.S. 264 to Greenville as a future interstate is a great milestone that will help fulfill our goal of connecting North Carolina," said Governor Pat McCrory. "Future Interstate 587 will become Greenville's first connection to a major interstate corridor, and this is terrific news for both eastern North Carolina and our entire state."
