Personally, I think if US 151 was going to be moved onto an all-freeway alignment through the Madison area, it would have been done long ago.

Look how long US 41 was kept on city streets in Milwaukee.  There's precedent.

I figure the thru-town part becomes Bus 151.

What they really need is a tunnel under Lake Mendota to make it much less of a headache to get from the NW to downtown without having to go in a circle. :D
Can we call this the Lake Mendota Hypotenuse? :pan:

From the northwest?  So connecting to the Town of Springfield.  Therefore, it should be a monorail.
 :-D

Without getting too much in the realm of fantasy, I had an idea years ago of keeping 151 on it's current location through Madison and designate the freeway/expressway parts of 151 as a northern I-37 that would go between Des Moines and Sheboygan. The local 151 in Madison would get a Bus I-37 on it as well. This way, the thru traffic could follow the interstate and the local traffic could follow what it has known for so long.

How abut making it Sioux City to Sheboygan and give it an E-W numbering?  I-82, perhaps.

I came up with the idea to renumber the DC Beltway from I-495 to I-666.

Because there is zero reason to expand US-20 to four lanes west of I-35.  In fact west of Waterloo it is largely barren.

Huh? It's all four lanes from Sioux City to Dubuque, innit?

Yeah I should have said freeway.  Isn't there some two lane portions remaining between Sioux City and Fort Dodge?
