North Carolina-NC 24-February 18


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-February 18

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special.

Over the past two months I have made a number of trips from Lumberton to Wilmington, NC. I have used NC 211 and really enjoy it’s long stretches where you travel for miles without seeing another car especially from Clarkton to US 74.

It got me wondering what is the longest State Highway in North Carolina. The answer surprised me. It is NC 24.

NC 24 runs 278 miles east to west from Morehead City to Charlotte. When you are traveling west it ends at I-485. When you travel east it ends when you hit US 70 in Morehead City.

NC 24 has special significance  to the military since it pass close by both Fort Bragg and Camp Lejeune. All told NC 24 travels thru 11 of North Carolina 100 counties. NC 24 also connects a driver to I-485, I-77, I-85, I-73, I-74, I-95, and I-40 in the state. NC 24 spends a lot of its time sharing the road with other highways including NC 27.
