History:


Per Dec 2008 FHA memo the 2nd I-140 was first proposed by North Carolina in Sept 2002 and approved by AASHTO in May 2003.
In Dec 2008 (NCDOT), I-140 was assigned to the newly constructed freeway from I-40 west to US 421.
Interestingly, the 2003 approval included the section east of I-40 to US 17 but this part has never been marked as FUTURE I-140 or actual I-140.
I-140 is slated to curl west then south back to US 17 in the Town Creek area. The segment between US 17 in Brunswick County and US 74-76 near Leland is nearing completion as of this writing.

The 1st I-140 was proposed by North Carolina in 1999 to run from I-40 in Raleigh southwest with US 1 to end at the US 421 Bypass of Sanford. This request was denied in April 1999 by AASHTO.

Comments: I-140 is and will be concurrent with US 17 over its entirety.
