A 1913 improvement (widening) of an existing underpass, construction costs were divided between the Southern Railway company and the Good Roads Commission. It has been "improved" several times, the last within the past 10 years.

The Central Highway became NC Highway 10, and this (long bypassed within the NC State Highway system) section is now Dimmock's Mill Road.
