Longest Interstate You Haven't Been On
« on: September 15, 2018, 11:17:39 AM »

I was curious what mine was. Looked it up, and found out it was I-25. Odd, considering I've been through all three states I-25 is in.

What's yours?

I-59.
It goes diagonally across the largest region of the country I have not been in.

I-85 barely counts: we used a short overlap with I-285 long ago

Longest never traveled at all: I-59

Longest ones I haven’t been on include I-16, I-19, I-27, I-78, & I-82, & the eastern I-84.  Of these, The eastern I-84 is the longest.

85 never overlaps 285. They're different roadways, even when they're parallel.

I-94.

Edited: Travel Mapping tells me I was on a 7-mile piece of I-94 on a hotel shuttle to O'Hare back in 2003. Didn't realize that. So it's I-15 instead for me.

Assuming we're talking about CONUS interstates: Western I-84

Others I'm lacking: I-49 (post-designation), I-8, western I-86, I-17, I-19, I-2, I-11, southern I-87 (post-designation)....and all of the AK/HI/PR Interstates.

I-80 is the second longest Interstate, but I haven't been on it at all.

Sort of a yes, but.... question; I've been on quite a few current Interstates (I-22, the east I-86, I-41) before they were designated as Interstates -- but they were still full freeways, some of which were actually Interstate-grade.  If that's the case, then I'd have to say the east I-86, since the last time I was on it its continuous mileage extended just east of Corning; the Horseheads section was still U.C. at that time (2003).  The future I-22's a close second; my last visit there (2002) it was full freeway (albeit substandard in much of MS) to Winfield (AL 129). 
The only part of the future I-41 I've been on is the part multiplexed with I-94; I'm arbitrarily not going to count that at all. 

That would make the longest Interstate I've never been on (crossed it a couple of times in San Antonio) I-37.  Just never really had the need or opportunity to utilize it.

I-22. I was never on it even when it was US 78. Others are I-2, I-14, I-16, I-27, I-73, I-82, and I-88 west (though I've crossed it countless times between St Louis and Wisconsin).

99% certain it’s I-64.

Forgot about the duplex with US 61 outside STL, so it’s not 64. I-8 jumps to mind as the next contender, which amusingly I’ve passed its eastern terminus and been to San Diego.

It's the western 84, which I probably didn't think much about because I've clinched its eastern counterpart.

I-80 for me, which is odd as I've traveled under it many times going from Chicago to Normal.

I-35, I believe.  Looks about the same length as I-95, so it is long.

I have been on all the I-x5 except I-15, I-25 and I-35. 
I have been on all the I-x0.
I have been on the three long ones that don't end in 0 or 5 -- I-81 and I-64 and I-94.
