The N.C. Department of Transportation does not name roads. It’s up to municipalities or counties to choose names for most roads, N.C. DOT spokeswoman Tammy Stewart said.
When major freeways are constructed where numbers are assigned, “we are a part of the naming process,” Stewart said.
There is a difference if a road is classified by the state as a boulevard or freeway, for instance.
