Will a full cloverleaf be built where I-140 crosses U.S. 74-76?

Q. Will a full interchange be built as part of the Phase Two construction where I-140 crosses U.S. 74-76 instead of the single off on ramp with stoplights they plan on using now?

A. What motorists see out there now is what’s part of the final design plan for that exchange, according to N.C. Department of Transportation officials.

“I think there was discussion many years ago during the planning of this interchange to have a full cloverleaf type interchange with no signals,” said Jack Provost, with the DOT. “But the location of the railroad being so close to existing US 74-76 prohibited us from a traditional interchange.”

Eventually that Interstate 140 ramp and the stoplights will be open, but that may not happen until just before summer, Provost said.

The final design, according to Provost, is described as a half clover.
