There are actually a bunch of I 264s already. In 2 different states but none in NC. In Interstate terminology a 3 number Interstate indicates a spur off of a main Interstate.

Of an interesting note... Hampton Inns is already referring to US 264 as I-264. Perhaps they know something that we don't?

If it is connected to I-95, it would probably be I-395 (or at least something with 95 at its end).

They need to look at a map- I-64 doesn't even go near NC. Maybe the Hiltons are planning to upgrade the whole of US 64 and its spurs to interstate status. As a side note though, NC seems to be very progressive with their interstate system. The US 29 corridor from Greensboro to Danville is slated to become I-785 at some time in the future. Changing US 264 to I-x95 isn't very farfetched, at all. Even a spur off of I-40 via 264 from Raleigh wouldn't even be a big step.

It will cross I-95. It's an east-west route so it must have an even number.

Both US and Interstates use this numbering convention with very few exceptions.

The Mayor wants it to start at I-95 and end at Hwy. 11. Even number spurs lead back to the main interstate, so an odd number will be required. Actually they'd probably just add this part of 264 to the spur that is in place, I-795. Of course, if it does reach all the way to Hwy. 11, rather than stopping at Greenville's western entrance, I don't know how they'll handle naming and directions when the 264 southwestern bypass is opened. Seems like the interstate spur would have to stop where the bypass begins and the bypass would have to be officially named as a Hwy. 11 bypass.

Someone has modified the article from earlier this morning. Earlier today it said they wanted to rename it from the Wake County line. Since it has been changed they can either call it a spur off of I-95 or give it an all new even number designation.

If it goes to the Wake County line, will the route be dually-named along with 264? Or, under that scenario, does 264 end in Greenville?

Yeah, that's what makes it kinda silly. You'd get 264 from 64 split east of Raleigh up to I-95, then it's I-whatever until you hit Greenville, then it's back to 264 all the way to Manns Harbor. Or more likely they relabel the section from 95 to Greenville but still list 264 as running concurrent as they already to with the stretch of 795 around Wilson, which sorta negates the purpose of renaming.

...except for the fact that extra federal dollars comes to localities with interstates within their borders. There is more benefit than simply a perceived status upgrade.

Not that much according to the Federal Highway Administration:

Table HF-10 - Highway Statistics 2007 - FHWA

Unless you're referring to obligations and outlays outside highway budgets.
