History:
I-295 was approved by AASHTO in May 2005 to be assigned to the Fayetteville Beltway. This had first been proposed by NCDOT as I-195 a couple years prior.
Per Interstate Guide.com, I-295 was opened from US 401 to River Rd in June 2003.
In July 2005, I-295 was opened from River Rd to I-95/US 13.
In Aug 2014 (per Bob Malme), a segment opened from Bragg Blvd to NC 210 but it is signed only as NC 24-87.
On 8/11/2016 (per Bob Malme), I-295 was opened from US 401 west to NC 210.
On 12/2/2016, I-295 was open from Bragg Blvd west to All American Freeway.
On 11/26/2019 (per Bob Malme), I-295 was opened from All American Freeway to Cliffdale Rd
On 8/19/2020 (per Sprjus4 on aaroads forum), I-295 was opened from Cliffdale Rd to US 401 Raeford Rd.
FUTURE I-295 shields were replaced by NC 295 shields in late 2014.
Actual I-295 shields were put in the field on segments opening west of All American Freeway and will now be placed on all parts of the open freeway to replace the NC 295 signage.
This had been identified on the 2004 and 2005 Official maps as NC 13 and was officially designated NC 295 on paper by NCDOT in June 2011.
Information and pictures about the progress of I-295 can be found at Bob Malme's site.
