About 1956 or 1957, NC 84 was extended east a couple blocks over what had been part of US 74-A to end at NC 200 which was using Main St at the time.
By 1962, NC 84 was extended along a rerouted NC 200 out Hayne St to US 74-601.
Between 1969-82, NC 84 was truncated back to its current endpoint in Monroe.

Comment: NC 84 is only 3 miles outside I-485, Charlotte's Beltway. The 2008 Official shows the Charlotte suburbia reach has nearly reached Weddington and NC 84.
