Weird local/regional road systems

When you look on a map it seems the majority of cities have freeways laid out in 3 ways. One is a hub and spoke system with a loop, two would be a grid, and three would be something more random due to geography.

However, sometimes you see a place that seems more unusual.

Here's Lexington, KY. Where you do see a loop around the city, with no other freeways connecting to it but rather skirting the place altogether.



Again in the Southern US, we have Greenville. A similar odd thing, you never see a loop that goes into downtown on one end like this. And why are 2/3s of signed as I-185, and the remaining third being the same I-385 that comes in from the south? Shouldn't it all be a single I-285 with I-385 terminating?
