I'm speaking specifically of two-digit Interstates. Three-digit Interstates are not eligible. (If they were, then I-376 in Pennsylvania would be mandatory at the top of everybody's list.)

Interstate highways in need of capacity expansion

1. I-5 in California
2. I-35 in Texas
3. I-95 in Florida
4. The Pennsylvania Turnpike
5. I-70 in Missouri
6. I-15 in California
7. I-81 in Pennsylvania
8. I-77 in North Carolina
9. I-95 in South Carolina
10. I-10 in Mississippi

List is based on Interstates that I've driven on.

Both. I'm talking about a general expansion of capacity.

I-77 between Charlotte & Statesville - not all of NC really needs to be widened.

I-26 in SC from I-77 to I-95.

A host of interchanges need to be reconstructed here in SC as well, mainly the I-26/I-20/I-126 interchange aka Malfunction Junction just west of Columbia, and for sure the I-26/I-95 interchange, one of the most poorly designed interchanges I've seen.

Any of the lousy highways in Pennsylvania would qualify, two-digit, three-digit -- it doesn't matter. They're all antiquated and inadequate.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission feels your pain. That's why they're in the process of six-laning the Turnpike from the Land of Milk and Honey state line east to New Stanton. I imagine that similar plans are in the works between Harrisburg and Philadelphia as well, even though shovels haven't been turned there yet. (Design studies take a little bit of time.)

On a side note, I-79 is neither antiquated nor inadequate.

All of the I-10 from Houston to at least Pensacola should be 6-laned.
