Like Virginia, the counties do not own the roads in North Carolina. North Carolina’s main roads consist of Interstates, US Routes, and state routes. These roads are run by the North Carolina Department of Transportation. Some municipalities also own the roads. North Carolina has the largest state highway system in the country because of this unique arrangement. There are also business loops, bicycle routes, toll roads and bridges.
The numbering system of state highways is a clue to whether they’re a primary or secondary road. Primary roads have a number of 1000 or more. Secondary roads have lower numbers.
Some of the North Carolina roads that are known more by their name than by a number are:
All American Freeway – Between Fort Bragg and central Fayetteville.
Blue Ridge Parkway – This national parkway runs from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to the state line of Virginia
Bryan Boulevard – Near Greensboro, North Carolina
Cherohala Skyway – A National Scenic Byway. It’s located near Robbinsville
Great Smoky Mountains Expressway
Greensboro Urban Loop – This beltline will help route four Interstate highways.
Martin Luther King Jr. Freeway – From I-95 and Fayetteville
Wade Avenue – Connects I-40 and I-440 near Raleigh.
Wendover Avenue – A Greensboro expressway
