NY 17/"I-86"

<< < (150/152) > >>

ABXY:
Quick thoughts: Interestingly enough 17 is my favorite number so it'll suck to see the designation disappear completely but I'd like to see 17C become 17 again, or 417 (unlikely). The map isn't to be trifiled with but I think it will remained a unsigned
 concurrency/afterthought in the future, or removed completely. Or 17 can Absorb 17k. I know those who are in favor of at least preserving it, or restoring the old alignments. IMO, 417 and 17C(?) in Binghamton restored as 17 with a (unsigned or signed) concurrency with 86 to connect the two would be a pain but would be a win-win for those on both sides of the coin. Who knows really.

The Ghostbuster:
Would it be possible (or likely) that NY 17 along completed portions of Interstate 86 may simply be de-signed, but not actually truncated or decommissioned? That way, NY 17A-NY 17M would not have to be decommissioned or renumbered.

That's basically that status quo on parts of the Southern Tier Expressway, but I don't believe that's the intended end state for if/when I-86 is finished.  That said, I wouldn't assume that the suffixed routes "have" to be decommissioned or renumbered even if NY 17 does go away - it's not like the I-x78 routes have been decommissioned or renumbered, after all.

Well I would think that the NY peeps would have posted this already, but I did not know that this I-86 EB shield existed before Saturday.  (https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=10219981070077597&set=pcb.10219981105758489)

And this particular shield has been there since 2008 at least... wow.
