It reverted to I-84 about 35 years ago.

I think he's referring to the old (and original) I-86 in CT and MA that reverted back to its original number of I-84 in 1984 after the Hartford-Providence freeway that was to become the rerouted I-84 was cancelled.  In other words, that I-86 got 86'ed!  :)

^^^^^^^^^^^
The fact is that development of the east end of I-86 has been in a weird state of "limbo" for years; parts near the I-84 junction have been signed but the shields covered, and the easternmost section near I-87 seems to have a few local controversies that have delayed any activity there.  Combine that with the Hale Eddy situation, which seems, in both political and logistical terms, to defy any plans to solve it.  So it seems that unless someone from NYDOT pulls the proverbial rabbit out of a hat ("but that trick never works!")*, further development of I-86 is at an impasse.  So, basically, no new news to report (NY posters with info to the contrary are more than welcome to chime in here).

It's mostly dormant besides the Kamikaze Curve project, but projects that have significant reason to be done independent of I-86 do more forward.  Exit 131 is currently being rebuilt, and the reconstruction of exit 105 was recently announced.

I know I was just joking but referring to the fact he brought up an interesting point many have forgotten.   That this current NY I-86 is a revision of the number on top of the one in Idaho, making I-86 more of just a typical two segment two digit interstate.

I-76, I-84, and I-88 were all first in their segments where I-86 was three actual alignments.

If they're looking for outdated cloverleaves to reconstruct, there are several in Buffalo..

It was announced along with a bunch of other freight improvement projects (first entry for the Mid-Hudson Region).  Rothman's list of outstanding I-86 projects included one labeled "Upgrade of deficient features on NY 42 from Monticello through the interchange with NY 17", which would be that location.

It's located along a rather long curve with limited sight distances. There also is just not enough traffic either to justify a full cloverleaf interchange.

At one time, R9 had one direction signed as “exit 105b”.  (Yes, all lowercase letters). I called it Exit 105 B-flat.

Any updates on I-86?
It's a short freeway connecting I-84 to I-15.
You mean I-86W to I-86E?

Back on topic...

I drove through the Exit 131 construction today and it is operating as a DDI. This is likely new within the last couple of weeks and none of the online map platforms show it. It's a 2-lane exit from I-87 with an option lane. Detour ramp to 6/17 WB remains in place, don't think the new WB entrance ramp is open yet.
