I-74   Coming Attraction
  I-74: The I-74 corridor was first created by the National Highway Designation Act of 1995 as a proposed interstate extension from Cincinnati OH to South Carolina. In Virginia as of 2014, I-74 has not reached the point of discussion.
In Virginia, I-74 is theoretically already finished, as it would likely multiplex with I-77 for its entire Virginia mileage. Thus, while I-74 does not exist, it is already finished.
North Carolina does sign I-74 on I-77 from the Virginia border to the I-74/77 split to US 52 near Mt. Airy, NC. Additionally, I-74 sections exist from Winston-Salem to near Rockingham, plus separate pieces near Maxton, Lumberton, and Whiteville. The US 52 freeway from northern W-S to Mt. Airy will also become I-74 after some improvements. West Virginia has not built any freeway portions of its theoretical route (along US 52) although upgrades as the King Coal Hwy are being done to expressway standards (not interstate). Kentucky has shown zero interest on I-74.
Presumably, I-74 would not be signed in Virginia until West Virginia's portion exists.
