|U.S. 501-A renumbered|
|The route:||US 501-A was for Chapel Hill and was created by 1953. The 1952 Shell Map shows US 15-501 bypassing Chapel Hill to the east but clearly shows thr road through town as secondary. The 1953 Official Map shows it as a U.S. Route.
US 501-A used Franklin St and S. Columbia St. and was once original NC 75.
US 501-A was renumbered as US 15-501 Business in 1960. Today only the S. Columbia St part is still primary routing, NC 86.
US 501-A may not have been also US 15-A. The large US 15-A running from Creedmoor to Laurinburg may have caused this route to not receive a 15-A designation. Anyone have a 1954-59 map of Chapel Hill?
