Welcome to Charlotte.
The crosswalks near the Hall of Fame are made of checkers.
Hey, what's that over there?
This intersection had 12-8-8 signals. Charlotte uses black fronts and yellow backs on its signals, but the only 12-8-8s I saw were here.
Almost looks like a milepost, doesn't it?
Charlotte's well out of hurricane range, but it still has Evacuation Route signs for, you know, whenever downtown needs to be evacuated for whatever reason.
AT&T building with a BellSouth label scar still visible.
Chiquita headquarters is part of NASCAR headquarters. NASCAR doesn't own them; they just lease some floors.
Now leaving. We stayed at the Hall of Fame for about two hours. It was only 1 PM at this point.
I-277 and US 74 overlap on the Belk.
Not much of I-277 left once you get on it.
We'll call it a clinch.
Back on I-77, now heading northbound.
And now we're back on I-85.
Enjoy your affordable Swedish crap.
Traffic jam at I-485.
The construction begins again.
Poplar Tent was the funniest road name I saw.
Somewhere in Cabarrus County.
There's no US 29 signage with NC 152 on I-85 northbound because you meet US 29 before you get there.
I-85 opens up to four lanes northbound.
Back soon for the conclusion.
