I 95 in NC

Just came North on I 95 from Savannah to just North of Smithfield NC.
I 95 from Lumberton to Smithfield was a mess.
Construction to widen the road made the 87 mile drive into a 3 hour ordeal.
Stop and go. Really, many times we just sat there.
Because of crazy drivers there were fender benders to add to the fun.

This looks like a pretty long term project and I 95 in NC NEEDS to be 3 lanes but it's a giant headache for now.

NC and SC are behind on upgrades and widening, Georgia was bad about 10 years ago but is much better today. Virginia eventually will get to I-95 seems the I-64 and I-81 corridors are their focus right now.

Thanks for the warning. We’ll be taking that route in about a week. Guess we’ll need to leave earlier than planned. Thanks again.

When I-95 gets frantic in those areas we pull off and use US-301. We travel those roads frequently because of having family in Fayetteville and close friends in Smithfield.

I never noticed how 301 runs parallel to I-95 through that area. We take 301 to avoid I-4 and Orlando, Florida. But didnít realize how far north it runs. Great tip. Thanks very much.

Be careful on I 95 thru Georgia. Last time we went through I saw a lot of feral hogs next to the road.
