Which is funny since I-35 doesn't connect Canada and Mexico.  :-P

As a lifelong highway geek, I love this forum.  Google Earth has opened up a whole new world to me as I am able to "see" the highway systems of other countries. 

Back to the topic.  While Google Earthing the country of Chile, I noticed their Federal Highway 5 is an Interstate standards expressway and tollroad through a significant portion of the country.  I believe that this route is also considered the Pan American Highway at this point. 

It is nice to see other nations upgrading their highway systems to the equal of the USA and Europe. 

I would love to see Chile and Argentina attempt to build at least one expressway through the Andes between Santiago and Buenos Aires.  I would love to be on the engineering team!

Maybe they should have an official route in the US designated the Pan-American Highway.

I nominate US 83 for this designation.

Not a bad choice at all!  I think I'd nominate I-35, switching to I-29 in Kansas City for a Mexico to Canada routing.
