From the other American roads thread:

There is already an I-44 from Wichita Falls to St. Louis. If this goes ahead, I would number it as I-54 or I-56. More likely I-54. AFAIK there are no even numbered interstate highways starting with a 5.

There are already various instances of identical Interstate numbers far apart;

* I-76: Denver - Julesburg + Akron - Philadelphia
* I-84: Portland - Echo + Scranton - Sturbridge
* I-86: Declo - Pocatello + Erie - Harriman
* I-88: Moline - Chicago + Binghamton - Schenectady

So it is not necessarily a problem.

Meanwhile, I-54 or I-56 is possible, considering there are no US 54 or US 56 in either Virginia or North Carolina.

Even still, you have I-74 and US 74 now in NC... and better yet, they're co-signed.

But yeah... for a Raleigh-to-Hampton Roads corridor, the numbers 42, 46, 54, 56, and 62 are all available for use if you want to stick to the grid.

The route could also be given a N-S designation... but there are no numbers available that would fit the grid. Thank you, Bud Shuster.

I read that on AARoads. I think they would reserve that for a corridor along the Delmarva Peninsula.

No reason that such a route couldn't go from Wilmington, DE to Raleigh. So I like it.

Traffic mayhem begins in Dallas, where the HOV lanes on I-635 are closed for the massive New LBJ project. This means 240 000 - 265 000 vehicles will have to squeeze on just 8 lanes, the perfect recipe for a gridlock.

It is paid for by tolls and partially by state gas tax.

Texas in general pays for most of their own road projects in the past years or at least much more than other states.

The first video of the new I-40 in Oklahoma City. The bridges look really cool. Great job.

Looks like a job well done. I'm sure it's a nice ride outside rush hour.

It's probably also nice during rush hour. Oklahoma City has almost no congestion, and this new 10 lane freeway is future-proof for a long time.

Ever wondered what those plastic poles between toll and free lanes cost?

Quote:
About $17,400 a week is spent to replace those flimsy plastic poles that separate the express lanes from the regular lanes.

At a cost of $29 a pole, about 600 are replaced every week.

Officials say the costs are small compared to what it would've cost to build a new road or widen I-95.

I bet there's all kinds of weaving between those flimsy poles, especially from what I hear about drivers in Miami...
