The selection of 690 for this new state highway is baffling, when in recent times new routes were using the 130-140's. Lou Corsaro suggests:
Extend NC 690 west of US 1 along Union Ch road towards US 15/501 & NC 24/27 in Carthage. Union Ch Road passes through Union Pines H.S, New Century Middle and the back side of the Moore County Fairgrounds (front entrance is on US 15/501 & NC 24/27).
