Pain in the Ass fails to make short list for I-40/440 construction name

Posted by on Mon, Aug 13, 2012 at 2:47 PM

Neither Pain in the Ass nor Royal Goat Fuck made the cut for naming for the interstate project that will ensnare traffic for 11 miles and three years on I-40/440. We know, you can't win if you don't enter.

Nonetheless, the public offered some wonderful turns of phrase.

The N.C. Department of Transportation launched a naming project for the road rebuild, due to begin in spring/summer of 2013. The project, according to the N.C. DOT, could funnel traffic down to two lanes along the southern part of the Beltline from U.S. 1 in Cary to U.S. 64/264 in east Raleigh.

Workers will excavate and replace 30-year-old concrete and asphalt and repair shoulders and ramps.

Below is the list of five finalists. The public can vote until Thursday at noon at http://tinyurl.com/I40Rebuild
Carmuda Triangle
Crawleigh
South-Wake Remake
Southern Discomfort
Wake-Over

Here is the list of honorable mentions, although they are ineligible to win:
Lane-Sanity
Fortyfication
I-40; Duke-0
Tar Hell
40 Shades of Congestion
Lanes of Pain
Shouldhavebuiltalightrailinstead
Lordylordygetmeoffforty
Numb Buns
Contructipation
Y'all Crawl
