RALEIGH, N.C. — Interstate 440 in Wake County has officially dropped its Inner and Outer labels.

After a recent upgrade of signs on I-440, the Outer Beltline around the northern part of the city will now be known as I-440 West. The Inner Beltline will be referred to as I-440 East.

Signs referring to the beltline were removed, transportation officials said.

The new I-440 East and West signs are located around the 16-mile northern section of the loop between exit 293 (U.S. 1/64) and exit 301 (the I-40/440 split).

The southern section of the loop on the south side of Raleigh is now known as I-40 East and West.

Officials with the North Carolina Department of Transportation said Monday that the changes are aimed at helping ease motorist confusion about travel on the Beltline.
