Well actually it wouldn't even be the first time they duplicated a route number. There are two I-84s (CT and OR), two I-76s (PA and CO), and I believe to I-69s. It just bugs the crap out of me when they do stuff like that...  >:(

Two I-74's (like they'll ever be connected!), two I-88's, two I-86's. Heck, think of how many I-80N's that there once were?  ;)

In Ohio, Interstate 73 and 74 are all but dead proposals. ODOT is not upgrading Ohio Route 32 to interstate standards, although there will be interchanges from Batavia west to Interstate 275 in the next 10 years to replace the signalized intersections. Kentucky had a short-lived proposal to widen and subsequently rebuild the AA Highway from Interstate 275 east to Interstate 64 Grayson to interstate standards, although this political-blabber died quite fast.

Kentucky, however, is slated to widen the AA Highway to four-lanes from the Campbell County line (where the four-lane ends) to Maysville, although it will be done by twinning the existing alignment and by keeping the few intersections that do exist. A new four-lane, limited access bypass of Maysville is currently in the right-of-way acquisition stage, although it is not part of any interstate.

West Virginia has several segments completed as part of the Tolsia Highway/King Coal Highway upgrade:
1. Four-lane divided segment (with a curbed median that becomes ditched, grassy) from Interstate 64 at Kenova to West Virginia Route 75, where there is a half-completed diamond interchange. Any upgrade near Interstate 64 will require substantial reconstruction, and the traffic counts just is not there.
2. Four-lane corridor highway around Prichard, complete with one interchange.
3. Four-lane corridor highway around Crum, although it was originally striped for 2-lanes SB and 1 NB (in a very odd arrangement). It is now two-lanes with four-lanes fully completed, and with one half-completed diamond interchange. It has no route marker, as it is not a full bypass of Crum, and ends at a minor county route.
4. Four-lane grading at Welch, with the massive volleyball interchange at the Coalfields Expressway -- both still grades in this vicinity.
5. Four-lane corridor highway from Interstate 77 west to US Route 460. From that point north, construction is ongoing to the Bluefield/Princeton Airport.

I'd like to if any of these duplicated routes will ever be connected, with all the environmentalist out there

Yes, and if you notice, ALL of those duplicates are east-west route numbers, with the exception of I-69.  But the one in Mississippi is suppose to eventually (in 20-30 years??) connect with the other, so then it would be a continuous route.
