I-69 creates no 3dis between Ft. Worth and Sarnia.  (There is I-496 in Lansing, and I-475 in Flint)


I-84 creates no 3dis between Portland and Boise.


I-5 creates no 3dis between Springfield and Manteca. (There is I-180/80B in Sacramento)
I-269 is a thing, so there goes your argument.
Also, I-84 has no children between I-184 in Idaho and I-684 in NY.

I-74 has no children between I-474 in Illinois and I-95 in North Carolina.  :bigass:

I-69 creates no 3dis between Ft. Wayne and Sarnia.  (There is I-496 in Lansing, and I-475 in Flint)

FTFY.

This is the opposite: I-38 has a grand total of zero miles, yet it has a 3di :sombrero:.

I-95 has none ( I mean none currently) between I-795 in North Carolina to I-295 in Jacksonville, FL.  Even when I-295 is officially bannered in North Carolina it will still be a long way from Jacksonville to Fayetteville.

It's unsigned (and only acknowledged by FHWA) I-305 in Sacramento (there's no 180 in California).

I-69 doesn't go to Fort Worth; I think he means Fort Wayne, which has I-469.

I thought when I first read it that there was a complete reallignment to the Texas portion of I-69

I-77 between Charlotte and Akron has no 3di's in between; it is notable that both cities have the same number, I-277!

I-80 between Reno (I-580) and Cheyenne (the maligned "I-180"): 953 miles.

Without "I-180", it would be 1438 miles to I-680 in Omaha.

I did mean Ft. Wayne.  I was distracted by a conversation in the office at that time.

They said take a left at the fork in the road.  I didn't think they literally meant a fork, until plain as day, there was a fork sticking out of the road at a junction.

Did anyone mention Interstate 40 from Barstow going east through California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and all the way to the east side of Oklahoma City where it spawns Interstate 240. 1,230 miles.

I'd say it would be less.  You forgot about I-180 in Lincoln, Nebraska.

If and when I-49 gets completely built from downtown New Orleans to Kansas City, the results are about 900 miles. This is assuming that 49 gets built through downtown Shreveport instead of on the loop resulting in a I-149 spur or the like.

I expect MO 249 will eventually be I-249.

Interstates that should be excluded from this discussion, IMHO.

Interstates without a 3di: 2, 4, 8, 12, 17, 19, 27, 37, 39, 41, 43, 49, 57, 66, 68, 73, 86, 88, 97, 99

Interstates with only one current 3di (signed or unsigned) or other 3dis that branch of the one 3di that actually connects to the parent: 16, 24, 25, 26, 44, 45, 69 (yes, others are in the future), 72, 74, 78 (none of them actually meet their parent), 79, 82, 83, 89

These could theoretically be infinite between child 3dis.

I-26 has I-126 and I-526

Correctamundo. I-126 is spawned west of downtown Columbia, SC, while I-526 is a beltway of sorts around Charleston, SC.

I-25 from I-10 in Las Cruces & I-225 in Denver is 613 miles.

From I-225 to I-90 in Buffalo, WY is another 400 miles.

Without I-225, I-25 would have over a thousand miles with no 3dis.

I-81, between Syracuse, NY (I-481), and Roanoke, VA (I-581), is about 535 miles, and the only child it meets is I-380 in Scranton.

I-380 could have been a child of I-81, as it originally was I-81E.

As it connects two mainline Interstate highways, it probably should have had an even prefix.

I-281.

I would suspect I-90 would be close, twice.  Once from Seattle to Rapid City; the second from Rapid City to the Chicagoland area.
There are plans to eventually make US 52 from I-90 south of Rochester to Minneapolis into an Interstate-grade freeway, as a child route of I-90. There's one section gone.

MnDOT has never said they plan to pursue an interstate designation for that corridor.

And actually, that section of US 52 is fine as-is with no interstate designation. It flows well, and has got to be one of my favorite sections of US highway. The freeway through Rochester is super clean and modern.

If it ever was to become an interstate, I would rather a 2di than a 3di, considering it carries plenty of long distance traffic (in my case the last leg of a 16 hour journey), and it connects Minnesota's third-largest metro area to the Twin Cities.

I-75 doesn't have any in Michigan north of I-675. That's 240 miles from the northern end of I-675 to the northern terminus.

I-75 again doesn't have any between I-475 in Georgia and I-275 in Florida. A stretch of 355 miles.

I-5 creates no 3dis between Springfield and Manteca. (There is I-180/80B in Sacramento)
I-80 Biz is I-305. And there's I-505 to the north.

Business 80 only exists on CA-51 but that is subjected to become a 3d State route of I-7 or I-9 just in case CA-99 gets interstate status from Kern County to Sacramento.
