I actually mentioned that and he laughed and said something like "yeah there sure is some crazy stuff out there"

at least, they are in kind of a straight line.

still not the worst abuse of the number 74 in any given state.  North Carolina, I'm looking at you...

It's complicated. I'll have to pull put my maps, but it seems like AR 74 may have been one continuous route at one time, though with lots of multiplexes. Somewhere along the way, it got chopped up and pieces given to counties to maintain.

Then you have AR 60 which has at least 5 sections that rarely come close to connecting (except near Rudy).

Also Highway 88, which just about crosses the state if you connect all the segments.

I think it would only go from the OK Line to Hot Springs. ;)

Then you have three (or four on a technicality) 45's, which actually was one continuous route at one time
