The posting of normal I-73 is in error.  NCDOT's Route Change request for this new segment is shown on their page as Future I-73.

Well, if they put up I-73 shields on the Bryan Blvd part once it's reopened, I'd say we should make it a 'proper' interstate no matter what IMO.

I was right, the Bryan Blvd part IS posted as a full Interstate now after it opened.  So, I propose to promote it all to a full Interstate, including the I-840 part.  Also, I-840 (West) needs to be promoted as well.

Signage for I-73 from I-40 to Bryan Boulevard has been changed from Future to Full Interstate signage.
Overhead signs, exit and mile numbers are not yet changed.
The END I-73 sign on the ramp from I-73/US 421 to I 73 has been changed to a NORTH I-73 sign.
I-73 shields have been removed from the FUTURE signs.
I-73 reassurance signs have been erected, similar to the I-87 signs in Raleigh.
Temporary advisory signs direct I-73 traffic to Bryan Boulevard West.
There is now no FUTURE I-73 signage until north of the US 220 merge north of Summerville.

I-840 is still signed FUTURE.

Unless anyone objects, I can make everything actual I-73 when the next segment opens soon...

2(840) -> 104
https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=4121.msg2296193#msg2296193

Assuming that on I-840 'Future' (which I'm sure will become a full Interstate finally once it's open to US-220), that the following points will also need to be updated.
1 -> 103(73)
2 -> 104(73)

I have submitted the extension of I-73 up US 220 to NC 68 and eliminated I-73 Fut W Greensboro (alt name added to I-73).

1 -> 103(73)
2 -> 104(73)

This still needs to be addressed on I-73's file, as the '840' point is still labeled as such.  Also I-840's file needs the fixes too.

Also, I would recommend the following exits to be re-centered, as they are off the center of the interchange (mainly due to guess work when they were originally added into OSM, but have since been corrected when newer imagery came out showing the correct location of the center point of the interchanges).

116 (NC-150)
123 (NC-68/US-220)

Made all these changes, plus went ahead and extended I-840 to US 220 as its opening is supposed to be April 14.

In the queue for submittal...

A post on AARoads, and a linked news article, indicate that:

-- the opening will be delayed until at least April 23 (darn, I was hoping to clinch the new segment on my way back from Florida next week)

-- the new segment will be signed as regular, not future, I-840.

The waypoint for the southern terminus of I-73 Future Madison does not correspond with the waypoint in the routes NC 68, US 220 and I-73, which breaks the concurrency between US 220 and I-73 Future Madison.
