Three miles of I-840 in Greensboro scheduled to open Tuesday

It appears another three miles of the Greensboro Outer Loop will open this coming Tuesday, December 18 at 10 am. The section will be for the western loop from I-40 near Chimney Rock Road to Bryan Blvd. This section is part of the I-840 half of the loop.

WFMY-TV in Greensboro has a video drive of the soon to be opened highway on its website.

The video shows that the new loop will be signed as Future I-73/I-840 which pretty much cements the routing of I-73 from NC 68 to US 220 as Bryan Blvd and the Greensboro Loop.

It also appears that the Southwest Corner of the loop that will complete the I-40 Bypass will open sometime in the Spring of 2008.
