* Updated with New Information as of May 25, 2017.
Color Key: Complete, Complete, but not signed as Interstate, Under Construction, Funded Future Project, Project Not Listed in STIP.
* Dates from NCDOT's Draft State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) 2017-2027 (Jan. 2017) and are subject to change. The STIP includes all projects funded from 2016 to 2025. Projects thus not included in the STIP have an assumed starting date after 2027.
** For completed and under construction projects only.

While the project to upgrade US 220 to Interstate standards is unfunded and thus not set to start until after 2025, NCDOT received a waiver to have the segment signed as a full interstate when the I-73/74 Asheboro construction project (I-73 Segment 8) was completed in October 2012, signing took place in October 2013.

1. Though the road is signed as an interstate, work is still needed on widening the shoulders on the southern end to meet interstate standards. This project was to start in 2011 but has been delayed (again) to 2016 in latest STIP revision, and this for only the segment from NC 211 south to Alt. US 220. NCDOT does have a funded project to upgrade signage to interstate standards along this segment in FY 2013.

2. There are remaining project to improve interchanges and/or bridges in this segment, but NCDOT was not required by the FHWA to complete these improvements for the route to be signed as an interstate.

3. Though built to interstate standards, this segment was not made part of the Interstate system until work to upgrade US 220 to interstate standards through Asheboro was complete. Though the exit signs were updated to interstate standards in the summer of 2013, the project also called for putting up official I-73 and I-74 signage (and removing US 220 signs), this was completed in December 2013.
