I-42  requested by AASHTO
Futurely: In April 2016, I-36 was officially requested by NCDOT to AASHTO for designation for the future interstate corridor running along US 70 from I-40 in Garner southeast to Morehead City. This corridor was placed into the interstate system via the December 2015 FAST act that amended the ISTEA Act of 1991.
During the April 2016 AASHTO meeting, the number for 36 was rejected and AASHTO and NCDOT agreed on the number 42 instead.
Blank future interstate shields were installed on the new US 70 bypass of Goldsboro prior to the AASHTO meeting. Since that meeting, some FUTURE I-42 Corridor signs have popped up throguhout the US 70 corridor.
US 70 is freeway for several segments over the 137 mile corridor but a lot of new construction is required before a fully finished I-42 is in place.
