As mentioned in the Goldsboro thread, the Super 70 Corridor Commission will be gathering at the currently unopened section of the US-70 Goldsboro Bypass for the unveiling of a "Future Interstate Corridor" sign on March 30 at 10:00 AM. It will take place at the Parkstown Road exit on the eastern section of the Goldsboro Bypass. The final section under construction is currently listed by NCDOT as being 92.51 percent complete with a completion date of June 1, but I think it'll open sooner than that. There's no mention of any sign unveilings anywhere else.

So, the three routes to OKI are: Old Long Beach Rd, the rerouted Long Beach Rd, plus Middleton Blvd to the western end of the island.

This article is 7 mo. old, but it was the newest one I found. It gives April 2018 as the completion target for the Wilmington bypass, I-140.

"Future I-87" signs are going up along US-17 between Williamston and the Virginia state line. Also mentioned in the article is the possibility of US-17 being upgraded to interstate standards between Elizabeth City and Virginia/City of Chesapeake within the next 8 years if all goes well.

Construction could begin in the next eight years, said State Rep. Bob Steinburg, R-Chowan. In the next decade, the segment from the Virginia line to Elizabeth City could be completed.

Construction on parts of new Interstate 87 connecting Norfolk ports to Raleigh could begin in the next eight years.

In Edenton Monday, Gov. Pat McCrory unveiled one of about nine future interstate signs to go up along U.S. 17 in northeastern North Carolina.

“We’ve got to have connectivity between Raleigh and Norfolk,” McCrory said, standing before a crowd of about 100 on the Edenton waterfront.

A bypass of U.S. 17 runs near Edenton.

The new interstate in North Carolina, approximately 180 miles and costing roughly $1 billion, would follow U.S. 17 and U.S. 64 in a historically poor area of North Carolina. The highway would increase travel, tourism and real estate development in the region, McCrory said.

The highway will link with interstates 64 and 464 to Norfolk.

Construction could begin in the next eight years, said State Rep. Bob Steinburg, R-Chowan. In the next decade, the segment from the Virginia line to Elizabeth City could be completed.

“That is in the realm of possibilities,” he said.

Construction would be divided into two major segments and then broken into smaller parts. The western segment of U.S. 64 between Raleigh and Williamston is already nearly interstate standards. In the northeast segment of U.S. 17 between Williamston and the Virginia line, some sections need significant improvement. One of the more costly and time-consuming sections to upgrade runs through the Roanoke River National Wildlife Refuge, said highway engineer Jerry Jennings.

Two feasibility studies expected to be finished next year will better define costs and improvements, Jennings said.

Earlier estimates put the highway at 213 miles.

That's the correct completion date, but DOT says it will be open for traffic in November, 2017.

I just found the Nov 2017 open-to-traffic estimate on Brunswick County's site, so I'm satisfied it is official.
