That is called a "Superstreet" [1]. NC seems to love these, as I've seen it pop up alone NC-73 recently near it's interchanges with both I-77 & I-85.

    This is just a new road configuration (to me).   NC Onemap aerials
updated to show the latest road configuration after they expanded 10
miles of dual carriageway on US221 in NC.   They used Median U-turn
configurations along the length rather than straight cross traffic for
the crossroads
