Ring Road is one of my favorite un-numbered roads. Why? If you don't, you havent' visited this blog enough.
Anyway, Ring Road was a circular loop around Carolina Circle Mall. It was one of the first roads to make a complete circle around a mall. Hence the name, "Carolina Circle Mall".
Currently, Ring Road has been pretty much destroyed with the mall. Only one section of it remains running from the Cone Blvd access route to the Wal-Mart construction entrance as seen in the map. Once the Wal-Mart opens, the remaining Ring Road will be renamed "New Ring Road". Bet it took them years and years to think of that name.
