North Carolina

US 220's southern turminus is at U.S. Highway 1 in Rockingham, North Carolina. From Rockingham, US 220 travels north through Richmond, Montgomery, and Randolph Counties through towns of Ellerbe and Norman. Near the town of Candor, US 220 follows a newly constructed 4-lane bypass freeway, sharing Future Interstate 74 and Future Interstate 73. The old US 220 route is signed as Alternate 220, which passes through the towns of Biscoe, Star, and Seagrove. Rejoining US 220 near the North Carolina Zoo, ALT 220 continues into Asheboro and Randleman as Business 220 while US 220 Bypass contines north to Level Cross. There, the Business and Bypass routes merge and travel north into Guilford County. Outside Greensboro, US 220 intersects Interstate 85 (Greensboro Bypass) before merging with Interstate 40 and eventually Business 85 in the city. US 220 then exits with U.S. Highway 29 and U.S. Highway 70 onto O'Henry Boulevard and then continues west on Wendover Avenue, just north of Greensboro's Downtown. Exiting onto Battleground Avenue, US 220 travels north out of Greensboro and into Summerfield, North Carolina before entering Rockingham County.

Virginia

U.S. 220 enters the state from the south just south of Martinsville. It uses freeway spurs to bypass Martinsville and Rocky Mount. The remainder of U.S. 220 is a divided four lane highway with a 55 mile per hour speed limit for most of the distance between Martinsville and State Route 419 in Roanoke County. Some high traffic areas and non-divided stretches have 45 mile per hour, or lower, speed limits. In particular, the stretch through Boones Mill, Virginia is not divided; the town is also well known as a speed trap. U.S. 220 is a winding road in several stretches, and there have been many accidents. The proposed Interstate 73 would generally parallel U.S. 220 between Roanoke and Greensboro, North Carolina, though funds have not been allocated for the project and some local residents prefer efforts to fix U.S. 220. At Virginia 419, U.S. 220 becomes a freeway, the Roy L. Webber Expressway, once again. At downtown Roanoke, it becomes co-signed with Interstate 581 until the freeway reaches Interstate 81 north of Roanoke.

History

Historical names

  • Maryland
    • North from Keyser, West Virginia to Cumberland, Maryland the highway is known as McMullen Highway. There, it joins Interstate 68 and U.S. Highway 40, which is known as The National Freeway west of Cumberland, Maryland and The Baltimore Pike east of Cumberland. From Baltimore Pike it departs for the Mason-Dixon Line via a recently upgraded roadway opened to traffic on September 18, 2000.
    • Originally the highway known as McMullen highway proceeded into the city limits of Cumberland, Maryland onto Greene Street. Via Baltimore Street, it then connected to Mechanic Street. From Mechanic Street to the city limits, traffic was split between two parallel one way streets, with northbound traffic carried by Frederick Street and southbound traffic carried by a narrower Bedford Street until the streets merged as Bedford Road, now unsigned MD 807, which connected to Pennsylvania at the Mason-Dixon Line.

A new highway was proposed in 2006, to extend Appalachian Corridor O, which now runs through Pennsylvania, through Maryland and West Virginia and connect with Corridor H (which will run from Weston, WV to Wardensville, WV and possibly connect with Interstate 81 in Virginia when completed). Committees have been formed and met in the three major cities along the route: Keyser, Cumberland, and Moorefield. Several different proposals have been discussed including one which will follow Interstate 68 west through Cumberland and then go south toward Keyser, WV, becoming the new US 220 replacing McMullen Highway. When Route 220 cuts off to the east just south of Keyser, the highway would follow WV Route 972 through New Creek to US 50. This is the point where the plan alters. One proposal is that it would travel west to WV 93 and follow it south to Scherr which is directly connected to Petersburg, just 10 minutes from Moorefield. Another proposal is that it follows another course of highways south and has a direct intersection with Corridor H (this section is US 55) near Moorefield. The plan for Corridor O Extended will be chosen in the spring of 2007. This plan is competing with several other plans like one that proposes that the road follow I-68 east and turn south just before Frostburg, MD cutting across Dans Mountain between MD 36 and US 220.
