Not a bad idea, and it could become known as Durham County, Maryland like it was in the late 1600s.

The best car to clinch every Interstate and US Highway in

US declares Puerto Rico the 51st state, starts building Interstates there

Canada allows an Interstate between the lower 48 states and Alaska

That would be funded by Canada, but would probably be numbered I-98 or I-595.

That would work out better than simply calling MD "West Delaware."

What does that have to do with what you said?  They are Interstates.

Yes, and a lot more believable (i.e., perhaps a possibility for a thread title someday).

Most 2dis violate standards at one point or another:

10, 20, 40: at-grade intersections in very rural areas
93: one lane in each direction through Franconia Notch
95: outdated design through NYC; several others throughout the Northeast also have outdated designs
5, 64: drawbridges
