Interstate 74

Interstate 74 currently connects Interstate 80 in Davenport, Iowa, to Interstate 75 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Two other sections of Interstate 74 exist in North Carolina; one from the Virginia State Line to U.S. 52 near Mount Airy, and the other in central North Carolina between Asheboro and Candor. The mileage indicated in the below table does not indicate both North Carolina sections, but we have driven all the miles of both sections. Interstate 74 may someday be extended eastward to Wilmington, North Carolina, or to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
