Keep in mind that AASHTO is not a regulatory agency like FHWA. It's a voluntary organization of state DOTs and has no enforcement power.
Right. Its power lies in harnessing the unchecked rage of roadgeeks and channeling it into nonsensical interstates in North Carolina.

It is listed in the DSM-V as "Interstate insanity".
Does the DSM say that cannabis smoke is infested with demons?

The psychiatric profession by and large doesn't believe in anything in the supernatural or in parapsychology.

Interestingly, Carl Jung, one of the major founders of psychiatry, was deeply into the occult.

Jung had an apparent interest in the paranormal and occult. For decades he attended seances and claimed to have witnessed "parapsychic phenomena". Initially he attributed these to psychological causes, even delivering a 1919 lecture in England for the Society for Psychical Research on "The Psychological Foundations for the belief in spirits". However, he began to "doubt whether an exclusively psychological approach can do justice to the phenomena in question" and stated that "the spirit hypothesis yields better results".

Jung's ideas about the paranormal culminated in "synchronicity", his idea that meaningful connections in the world manifest through coincidence with no apparent causal link. What he referred to as "acausal connecting principle". Despite his own experiments failing to confirm the phenomenon he held on to the idea as an explanation for apparent ESP. As well as proposing it as a functional explanation for how the I-Ching worked, although he was never clear about how synchronicity worked.

Synchronicity may not be explainable -- but at least it was a very listenable Police album!

Found this old thread to let you know the section to Peoria is pretty much dead. Canton IL cut a deal to 4 lane US 24 instead so there would have to be a new study between there and Macomb. More details in Southern Illinois notes in Ohio Valley of anyone cares. ....

The agreement is to 4 lane US-24 only as far as Banner.

I haven't seen any plans or contracts issued to further upgrade IL-9 the rest of the way to Canton.

However after the US-24 upgrade is done and it pushes more traffic that way, I would suspect, a few improvements on IL-9 will follow in the coming years.

As for the future of IL-336 west of Peoria, it probably will not make it all the way to Macomb, but I would surmise the planned improvements will get to Farmington eventually, if anything to get that silly stub to be more effective.

Farmington is pretty noisy and is the reason the Union Pacific ROW has been banked for future use. I predict a repeat when the funding plate gets passed around again.

Sometime around 2030 or 2035 it will all come to a head again.

Carl Jung also was renowned for promulgating theories about "archetypes" and the "collective unconscious."
