http://www.newsobserver.com/news/traffic/article199388429.html Pretty nifty to me. The new I40 interchange between Raynor and Rand and assocating roads I believe will be very useful for getting around Swift Creek and the mess on NC50. Would be nice to have regardless of 540. This isnt realistic for a lot of the area. Tryon does nothing to help, and NC42 is too little, too late I believe. Their proposed NC55 expansions is dumb, as its problem isnt lanes, its stoplights. Short of making it an expressway, nothing is going to fix it. And this has nothing to do on expanding 40 faster. Dumping more traffic on 40 isnt going to fix anything.
