Given the "CC" stands for "Clark County", I'm not aware of any other Clark Counties that have a freeway numbered 215...  :pan:

Doubtful that CC 215 is the only freeway maintained by a county agency in the US. But ISTR mention when it was first being planned that it was the first future interstate highway or beltway that was primarily planned/funded/constructed by a county agency (rather than a state DOT).

Pena Blvd in Denver.

IMO, while it is unique to have a county DOT fund a freeway, I am very glad that it is signed as well as it has.  IMO, every freeway, of whatever type, should be identified with a number of some sort, just to make it easier to navigate as well as to place numbers on maps.  There are some freeways out there that are maintained locally, but aren't numbered.  These include many of the parkways around NYC (which are full freeways, even if they don't  meet interstate standards or allow for trucks).

Personally I donít see that necessarily as a bad thing that a county agency or city would want to get into the freeway building game.  A local agency conceivably have more pull in getting through all the red tape than a State DOT could.  Locally maintained freeways are far more common outside the United States, I recently drove two owned/maintained by the City of Hamilton in Ontario.
