What is/was the purpose of these (abandoned?) highway/ramp stubs at the western end of I-840 at I-40, southwest of Nashville? Are there long-term plans (either proposed or cancelled) to extend I-840 even further northwest? Not like it needs an extension - the route is already so long that it isn't really an efficient bypass (think I-275 in Cincinnati). I also noted that the eastern terminus doesn't have any stubs - it's a regular trumpet interchange.

Like this interchange without the stubs? This is I-690 that WAS going to be extended eastward but opposition decided not to do it.  :banghead: :banghead:
Anyone else having issues with snowc's images?  Looking at the post, it appears that the URL goes instead to a page on Google Drive, which prompts for an account sign-in.
Fixed. Now you will see the image and it will instead point to Imgur.
