North Carolina I-95 Economic Assessment

May 2013

Interstate 95 (I-95) in North Carolina is an important part of the local, regional, state, and national transportation system. I-95 traverses 182 miles through eight counties (Robeson, Cumberland, Harnett, Johnston, Wilson, Nash, Halifax, and Northampton) from the Virginia border to the South Carolina border. I-95 in North Carolina was first built between 1956 and 1980, and with a few exceptions, it is basically the same four-lane highway today as when it was first built. Thus, it does not meet the most current interstate design standards.
