That would make more sense if the highway was in the state where he was a senator.

Well, he was born in Scranton. That probably has something to do with it.

Aka "You know, the road thing".  Would've rather they named it after Dwight Schrute.  He's done more in 49 years.

As soon as I saw the thread title I figured the CSE (CSX? :)  :rolleyes:) was the one getting the honor.*  The WNEP link confirms it.

*Is Rep. McDade's name still on the North Scranton Expy., or was his name removed?

Two comments before the inevitable lock:

1.) I've seen photos that show the greenout done in FHWA, leaving only the bottom line in Clearview. I'm shocked -- shocked -- that Pennsylvania has abandoned Clearview.

2.) Several have commented that regardless of the politician being feted -- meaning not specific to Biden -- they don't approve of things being named after people who are still alive. I disagree. I think it should be done while people are still around to appreciate the honor.

On the bright side it wasn't numbered I-999 or that's something.
