The interstate nmber should be enclosed by a blue diamond, but the sign was just black on white. We almost missed the turn onto I-140.

We have concluded that it would not help most commuters into Wilmington as there are only 3 other entrances. It is designed to be a bypass only.
Still not properly marked. Came back from SC yesterday, wanting to use 140 to 40 from 17N. Drove right by it, ended up on 421. Didn't get lost, but didn't get to use my chosen route either. Can't imagine what this must be like for drivers with absolutely no familiarity with the area.

Phil, There are various ways to report a signage problem to NCDOT.

AASHTO just had their spring meeting a few days ago and just now posted their minutes. It seems the reason that the NC-140 signs have not yet been replaced by I-140 shields is because NCDOT needed AASHTO’s permission first. NCDOT submitted a request for signing I-140 between US-421 and US-17 in Brunswick County. It was approved, so I-140 signs should be going up within the next few months.

Approval can be seen on page 5.


Application can be seen on pages 1-8.
