Routing of a widened US 69 is again going for discussion.,,it looks like a mid instead to western route is now favored.

Put something together for the origin of the name "Sore Finger Road" which can be observed from Interstate 10 west of Phoenix:

There is no rule that odd-numbered first-digit three-digit Interstate Highways can't end at another Interstate at both ends.

Well obviously when a state runs out of even numbers for the first digit of loop/circumferential routes, they're allowed to use odd numbers for the first digit of additional such routes. That doesn't disprove the existence of such a rule.
That is not how it goes.

You stop that.

What's the alternative, don't build any more 3di when the numbers run out? Of course not.

So once again, you stop that.

As Texas and Florida, not to mention California and Arizona, have amply demonstrated, not every freeway or tollway has to have that red, white, and blue Interstate shield.

AZ 74 might be in my top ten overall most frequently clinched state highways.  I had to use probably at least a dozen times a month when I was heading to/from work sites in Kingsman, Laughlin, Bullhead City and Las Vegas.  How it is still mostly only two lanes seems bizarre given how heavy traffic can be at times.

I stopped using it to get to US 60 because of the cop-induced bottleneck in both directions at Lake Pleasant (87th Ave?  It's been a few years).  Even the Loop 303/US 60 exit ramp bottleneck is better than that.

Trouble for me was the bulk of the time I lived in Phoenix AZ 303 wasn't an option given it was just Cotton Lane.  Sometimes I used Bell Road to get from AZ 101 to US 60, but that wasn't exactly fun either.

The I-94/90 rest area in Mauston just stocked new 2023 maps and I was able to get one. The employee had a large box of them.
any improvements to the beltline drawing?


I'd be shocked if it was any different than the one WisDOT posted on the web:

Received an email today saying that WIDOT is considering moving US-151 onto the interstate and the Beltline as part of this project.

It makes complete sense. This is the only section of US-151 on a city street in-between the Mississippi and Fond du Lac. While it's understandable to want to have a signed navigable route to and through downtown Madison, there is no reason for through traffic on US-151 to follow the signed route.

I would not be opposed to a special "Capitol Loop" designation, but instead of following the existing designated US-151 routing, I'd route it on E. Washington, Blair Ave, and John Nolen Dr back to the Beltline. I don't see a purpose for Park St. or Regent St to have a state highway designation, though if the City of Madison so desired, it could designate a University Loop to connect the Beltline to the UW campus.

Iím still stuck on why I-11 west of the White Tanks is necessary to begin with.
