Of this route, I've only driven 300 miles

I met someone who did this whole route by motorbike, you can read his story over here. And please don't mind the language

Interstate 95 in Maine turns into Provincial highway 95 when it crosses the Canadian border into New Brunswick.

That's the only one I can think of.

Looking at MS Streets & Trips, crossing the US / Canada border:

MN 61 becomes ON 61
MN 11 parallels Highway 11 in Canada on the other side of the Rainy River, and the two come within 1 km of each other at one point
MN 89 becomes MB 89
US 59 becomes MB 59
US 75 becomes MB 75
ND 32 becomes MB 32
ND 83 becomes MB 83

In the NYC area:
NJ Route 495 changes into NY Route 495(Lincoln Tunnel)
Palisades Parkway


US 1- Same number through every state(Even though this applies in every route, the Boston Post Road is called by the same name in NY,CT and MA CMIIW)

In Maryland:
MD Route 295(Balt-Wash Pkwy) to DC Route 295(NY Ave Extension)

It's also partially historic, for example in your examples, they were once planned Interstate Highways, such as the I-495 and I-295.

yep the mid manhattan expwy was cancelled in the 1960's. Now some regard 34th st as "I-495", because it provides a direct link to the lincoln tunnel on it's western end and the midtown tunnel at the eastern end. I should note that the Lincoln Tunnel is officially known as I-495 on the new york side but regarded as Route 495 on the New Jersey side

Mexican Federal Highway 57 and U.S. Route 57 at Piedras Negras, Coahuila/Eagle Pass, Texas

I think that's the only one in the Mexico-US border

No, Latvian A3 and Estonian road number 6. After the border and town Valga in Estonia, there's a crossing with road number 3.

The M1 in the Republic of Ireland is connected to the M1 in Northern Ireland.

Also, the M4 in England joins the M4 in Wales, but I don't think that should count

In that case all has been mentioned and this thread can be closed. Perhaps it's a better idea to change the title into "Roads that connect........."
