For sheer scenery, I-280 (at least north of CA 85) in CA.  For variety of scenery, I-680 to the east.  And for long-distance functionality, I-505: when traveling to the PNW, getting onto this highway was a sign that I was well on my way; and in reverse, a sign that I was almost home.

Leave Here what is your Favorite 3di Interstate i Didn't List!
Why is the totally non-descript I-275 near Cincinnati on the list? Maybe because it was the original (and for years the only) Tri-State 3di?

I'd have instead picked I-265 (IN, KY), because it is likely the only Interstate (2di or 3di) to feature a tunnel on its route that is sited wholly within one state's territory but was paid for and is maintained by another. Yes, The Commonwealth of Kentucky somehow conned INDOT & State of Indiana taxpayers into paying for and maintaining the (IMHO) totally UNNECESSARY End Tunnel under the supposedly "historic" Drumanard Estate, just east of the Lewis & Clark Bridge over the Ohio River. I sure hope we Hoosiers get a portion of the toll revenues from the bridge to offset the burden of maintaining these twin tunnels in and for the Bluegrass State.

Also, this I-265 also connects to a second 2di (I-64) in addition to its parent. While this alone does not make the route unique among 3dis, it is nonetheless helps make the route more interesting.

I-155 in Illinois is an underrated 3-digit interstate, as it provides a good route between two of the largest cities in Downstate Illinois, Springfield and Peoria, despite not directly serving either city.

It's not totally nondescript. It looks just like Snoopy's head.

The I-64/I-264 loop at Louisville looks like a stomach.

Well Because I-275 i believe is the largest Loop in the US around a city, and because it enters a state that its Parent Route Doesn't Go through

I-295 in Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania is the red-headed, bastard stepchild of the Interstate system.

The 2nd part, I-275 is not alone on that list. I-129 crosses the Missouri River into Nebraska, whereas I-29 never enters Nebraska

I-295 in Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania is the red-headed, bastard stepchild of the Interstate system.   
:popcorn:
The IL and WY I-180s take that title over Philly area I-295. I-295 is a something, tho

I-295 in Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania for its great utility, historically best large flashing arrows (at I-76, R.I.P.) and because I spent half my life driving or riding up and down it almost daily (in NJ at least).
