Janeway is going to kill Tuvix.

NOMAD is going to kill us all first!

US 101 is THE backbone of the Pacific coast from Bandon OR to Willets CA.  Industry, tourism and local traffic would be gone or severely crippled without it being in functioning condition in BOTH states.

US 202 could be gotten rid of. Its basically an aggregation of SRS from ME to DE. Not a direct route at all.

US-202 is an interregional route between I-95 in DE, thru PA, and to I-287 at Bridgewater NJ.

The only one I think at risk would be 266.
Sure, and by that same logic, US 166. But their parent still exists, albeit as an Historic Route, so I'd keep them.
In fact, 266 could easily be extended into Arkansas along AR 22 and probably farther (with a duplex with US 64). It’s probably the only remaining US route that makes logical sense to extend into Arkansas as just about all the good candidates are now taken.

Further upthread, someone suggested that either that either the DE-PA-NJ stretch of US 202 be either renumbered or truncated north of I-287.  US 202 from central NJ northward featured multiple concurrencies.

^ Could renumber the "important" part of the corridor (Wilmington to 287) as US 122...that was it's original route number prior to 1935.

US 266 is likely safe because there is an OK 266 not far away in Verdigris. ODOT couldn't be bothered to renumber one of them.
