Hi,

Does anyone have any plans or maps on the propsed finished project of I-840, especially the north side of things? Alot of progress has been made so far on the south end of the things, some west and some east, but we are looking at properties northside and want to know how far away, or not, 840 is going to be. Any input?

I went to the NCDOT website and found this: NCDOT: Greensboro Urban Loop but it didn't give me any of info, not for what I was looking for.

I also found this, which has really great pictures of the highways, the loops, here outside Greensboro (with realistic traffic conditions I might add!!!!) :
I-73 Segment 4

What do you think? Thanks for your help!

A found this on the web so I dont know if it will help you.


I am also a cartoghrapher (map maker) for a company near Lexington and I recently updated the Greensboro/High Point map. It includes the path of the entire loop and you can see the surrounding roads in more detail. You can pick one of those maps up in the Great Stop gas station. Its the map that has Greensboro's skyline with General Greene's statue on it or the one with the cover with Greensboro's ballpark on it.

This is a great picture gsoboi!! You know, I do remember sometime last year you mentioning your working for a cartography/map company out there in Lexington. I hope things are still going well for you in this weird economy, G-. Maybe you are even busier as some town grow exponentially in an effort by many to avoid bankruptcy...??

This picture does help - but let me ask you this, I am looking at a property in the zip code 27455 that is near Cotswald Ave in Greensboro. Someone mentined to me that Cotswald was going to be part of the 840 plans, which I found pretty hard to believe considering the tight home communities out that way. But perhaps. Do you any thing more about that area, considering what you do for a living? It would be a big help to know. Thanks Gsoboi! You totally rock!

after looking at our map, part of Cotswold Ave does appear to be a part of the I-840 path. When we put maps together, we get all our info from GIS data and it shows I-840 following the path of Cotswold Ave from Lawndale Ave to the Bicentennial Greenway. It was probablly the best move for the city because this path appear not to go through any homes. I'm sure the city wants to minimize taking people's property through iminent domain. You might want to call the city planning department and find out if the city will relocate that part of Cotswold. Many times roads will be relocated to make way for big highways or development like Old Oak Ridge Rd was.

Hope it gets finnished in a timely manner. I-485 (Charlotte's OuterLoop) here in Charlotte was started almost 15 years ago and is not scheduled for completion until about 2015.

Thank you, gsoboi! That's a great resource. I'd heard about it but I, too, hadn't seen exactly where it was supposed to be. That's definitely helpful for my future house hunting.

There was an article in last Sunday's News and Record about how people who bought homes were surprised to find out there was this major highway planned on being built in their back yard. Does no one do their homework anymore? The sad part is, most of the homes mentioned were newer homes! I can't believe someone actually developed the land, built houses and sold them at high dollar to people, too. Sorry to vent, but it's aggravating! I sometimes really, really despise capitalism. It brings out the worst in people.

Sushi, you know the answer to that. Here in the Phoenix Metro area, we have the chronic lack of homework problem. There has been a planned bypass for south of Phoenix, the builders build, and when ADOT finally gets around to it, the homeowners scream to high heaven... even though they pass a sign that says "Future Site Of" several times a day.

And the developers just don't give a flying damn. They get their money and run.
