I-80 and I-294 is my nomination for this. While the former continues east to the IN border and beyond, the latter ends at the I-94/IL 394 junction. Just an extension of a 3di for the sake of having both ends at its parent 2di.

It's also a way to justify sticking a toll on the mainline for I-80.  The tollway logically should end at I-80, but IL loves toll money.  I have no problem paying the toll and it's inexpensive, but it's a sneaky way to trick people onto the toll system, even if the tollway was built first.  All they would have to do is not toll the ramps to/from I-80 for I-80 to be free on the mainline.  Obviously not going to happen, though.

Of what I have been on:
-US 25/42/127:  US 25 terminates at the OH border, making US 25 unneeded on this concurrency.  The easiest solution would be to truncate US 25 back to the US 42/127 intersection, but I would actually terminate US 42 there instead and change US 42 in OH to US 25.
-I 865/US 52:  No need for an Interstate number on a glorified ramp.  US 52 is fine there.
-I 73/74:  Mentioned earlier, but I don't see why NC needs I-74.  The part NW of Mt. Airy can be I-777, or just a state route; US 52 has the segment from Mt. Airy to Winston-Salem; I-x73, x85, or x40 can cover the High Point section (I'd do 385 myself); US 74 works fine on the Laurinburg section; and the 73 and 77 overlaps can be dropped.

I’ve seen “Flagger Ahead” instead of “Flagman Ahead” a few times.

I've literally never seen the latter.

^This is what's made the Oregon set for Travel Mapping a bit of a pain. The ODOT highway maps don't match the published ODOT state map doesn't match what's in the field. Should OR 120, 104S, 99W from Tigard to Kenton, hell 10 and 210 be included? 120 and 104S aren't signed; 10 and 210 are despite only fragments being ODOT maintained.
So, following the intention of the 2002 signing plan, everything is included in the dataset, save for 105 (not signed, part of Bus 101, number duplicates I-105), 372, and 420.

I agree but I-95 just north of the Elkton, MD/Newark, DE border has been charging that rate for years.
The difference with that though is that a local can exit before either toll and head into either city using modern 4-lane roads. In this instance, if you lived in Middletown and wanted to go into Maryland for some reason, to avoid the steep entrance toll, you'd have to exit before the toll, and drive down narrow 2 lane roads. In dry weather during the day, it's okay (but still messed up). During rain and at night, the risk of an accident is much higher, especially if a lot of traffic choses to use it.

The difference being that even before I-95 was built, US-40 was a 4-lane divided highway in the same corridor. 

There is no need for the bulk of MD and DE 299 to have more than 2 lanes.
Agreed, but the roads should be widened out to full 2 lane width - 12 foot lanes and 4 foot paved shoulders - especially if locals are going to divert this way.

Any idea how many lanes the new viaduct will be? I'm guessing 12 total?

Regarding the U. S. 301 toll, what is the toll for traveling rhe comparitable distance on DE 1?

There will be no Interstate 67. Not in Indiana, not in Michigan, not in Kentucky, nowhere.

You never know what North Carolina will do.

FWIW, North Carolina's three BUILD grants have nothing to do with interstate or freeway projects. One project will replace inadequate bridges on rural highways, one will build a bikeway/greenway in Hickory, and one will further develop the new Amtrak station in Raleigh.

This is hard, because I took some very iconic shots as part of my travels and I had about 10 shots to choose from. For the sake of geographic variation, I chose these four. Let's start with Spring Break on the Talimena Scenic Drive in Arkansas and Oklahoma.

Moving to June, I have the upper hairpin on NY 431 on Whiteface Mountain.

Finally, two famous shots from my cross-country trip in August (which I already threw in the other thread). Pine Creek Canyon in Zion National Park, UT and the Golden Gate Bridge from the Marin Headlands.

OH-3 from Columbus to Cincinnati.  All of it is multiplexed with either US-22 (Cincinnati to Washington CH) or US-62 (Washington CH to Columbus).   Historically, OH-3 precedes the US numbering system, and many sections of it are called 3-C highway (Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati).   But let's be real - anyone traveling between Columbus and Cincinnati will use I-71 anyway.

OH-3 from Columbus to Cleveland is mostly independent, other than a 24 mile overlap with US-36 and a short overlap with US-30.

Looks like we've already taken US 9 to Poughkeepsie, so let's see if we can find another way to escape from NYC.  Easiest would be to keep that play and go to Peekskill instead.

Oh, wow, I didn't even think to look.

I have amended the post as suggested.
