North Carolina Highway 59 (NC 59) is an 8.288-mile-long (13.338 km) primary state highway in the U.S. state of North Carolina that runs through Cumberland County from Interstate 95 (I-95) near Hope Mills to U.S. Route 401 Business (US 401 Bus.) in Owens, within the city limits of Fayetteville.
NC 59 is an urban route southwest of Fayetteville. NC 59 begins at I-95 (exit 41) and proceeds north from there intersecting I-95 Bus. and U.S. Route 301 shortly thereafter at a partial cloverleaf interchange. NC 59 continues north entering the town of Hope Mills. NC 162 intersects the highway just north of downtown Hope Mills, as NC 59 continues north through the suburban parts of Fayetteville. NC 59 comes to its northern end at US 401 Bus. (Raeford Road)
NC 59 was first commissioned in 1932 as a new primary highway from US 1/NC 50 in Raleigh following present day US 401 to Louisburg and ending at US 158/NC 48 in Warrenton. In 1957, NC 59 was renumbered in its entirety by US 401.
Today's alignment was commissioned in 1958 and initially it ran from US 401 west of Owens and around the north side of Fayetteville and ended at US 401 north of Fayetteville. In 1963, NC 59 was extended south through Hope Mills and ended at US 301 as an upgrade to State Routes 1141, 1118, and 1124. By 1968, the northern terminus of NC 59 was truncated to its current endpoint at US 401 Bus. in Owens. US 401 Bus. replaced the original alignment of NC 59 north of there. In 1982, when I-95 was opened around Fayetteville, NC 59 was extended to it.
The entire route is in Cumberland County.
