I 74/US 311 High Point

I 40 West, I 85 South, I 74/US 311 East, US 311 East to Old 311, US 311 West, Main Street South, NC 68 East, I 74/US 311 East, I-85 Business West to Surrett Rd exit, I-85 Business East, I 85 South, US 52 East, NC 73 East, Millstone Rd, US 220 North, US 64 East, US 15/501 North.

I 74/US 311 bypass of High Point is open. Construction continues on the highway from its current end at Cedar Square Road to US 220. That section is supposed to complete in a couple of years.
All signage for US 311 Business is gone. Almost all signage for the former US 311 routing along I 85 Business and Main Street is gone. Remaining are reassurance shields for US 311 along I 85 Business and one early exit sign for US 311 South on Main Street on I 85 Business west of Main Street. The exit signs at Main Street proper do not mention US 311 or US 311 Business.
The US 29/7o/NC 150 exit on I 85 at the Yadkin River Bridge is closed. There are detour signs for US 29 along I 85 up to the Spencer exit. US 70 and NC 150 drivers are supposed to know to follow the US 70 signs. There appears to be rightway clearing south of the Yadkin River bridge for the new bridge.
Took US 52 to Albemarle and NC 73 to US 220 to connect unclinched segments of both roads.
US 220 Alternate/Business is still signed US 220 at NC 73.
Reclinched I 74 in NC, US 311. Mileage on US 52, NC 73.
