Stephane Dumas:
There was lots and lots of talk about I-395 extension to ME-9 and OSM showed this extension.

Looks like that old project would finally see the light of the day. https://www.maine.gov/mdot/projects/I395rt9connector/

Has MaineDOT ever mentioned what the connector will be designated, if anything at all? Ideally it'd be an extension of I-395, but that can't happen since it'll only be a super-2. Will ME 9 be rerouted onto it, or will they pull a NYSDOT and sign it as ME 395?

If I had to hazard a guess, they move 9 onto 395, and have 9 follow the newly built route. Old 9 is deleted, leaving most of it as whatever it was already concurrent with. There would be a tiny unnumbered stretch east of 178, but it can probably survive without a number. It would also be consistent with 15 having been moved onto 95 and 395 to bypass the city as well.

I think SectorZ might have a point by rerouting ME-9 althought they could call it I-395 despite being a super-2. I-95 north of Bangor to Houlton was once a super-2 until the late 1970s.
