History: NC 140 was opened October 16, 2014 on a newly constructed freeway that runs from US 17 near Town Creek north to US 74-76 near Leland. This was a place holder designation until the freeway is continued northeast from US 74-76 across the cape Fear River to connect with existing I-140 at US 421.
In Jan 2015 (NCDOT), the NC 140 designation was formally applied to the rest of existing I-140 from US 421 to I-40 and to US 17 east of I-40 to the end of the freeway. NC 140 as of late 2017 was not posted anywhere other than the US 17 to US 74-76 portion.
In Dec 2017, the posted part of NC 140 was reposted as I-140 upon the opening of I-140 from US 74-76 to US 421.
