D.C. Highways Question

<< < (2/2)

Speaking of DC roads: I recently completed a map that shows all DC roads named after US states.  Everyone knows Pennsylvania Av, and there are other well-known ones, like Massachusetts Av, Connecticut Av, Georgia Av, Rhode Island Av, New York Av... but I was surprised to find that all 50 states are remembered on a DC roadname.  In the spirit of the original city plan, all of these roads run diagonally.  You can discern other patterns by viewing the map...

I'd add 110 near the Pentagon to that list.  I have no idea what the actual road there is called, but I've never heard it referred to as anything but 110.
