I am back again with my new I-51 idea,the current I-110 would be extended beyond u.s.61 and up to alexandria by croosing the river north of b.r. and work its way northwest to alexandria.Once in alexandria 51 would follow 165 up to monroe,then would connect with the current I-530 in pine bluff.I-51 would take over I-530 from pine bluff to little rock and run north from there up into missouri by way of u.s.167 and 63.Once in missouri 51 would follow u.s.63 up thru rolla,jefferson city,and columbia.north of I-70,I-51 would cross into iowa and would go northwest into des.moines by way of iowa route 5 and then would terminate into I-35.The other option north of I-70 is to run 51 up into rochester,mn.I-51 would then take over the u.s.52 path to st.paul,and possibly could be extended all the way up to international falls (canadian border).just an idea!! I don't think the environmentalists in louisiana and minnesota would be supportive of this route.

Well, it's an interesting and fascinating plan, but I don't think that route is needed as of right now. Or maybe I should reword, it's not a high priority right now. I don't even know of many people that use most of that route except for the Louisiana portion where people drive through Natchez to get to Monroe.
Eventually, Louisiana was supposed to freeway the US 165 portion between Alex and Monroe to make a limited access route between south Louisiana and northeast Louisiana, but I don't know where the state stands on that now. If they ever built it, then I could imagine an extension in the future to meet with I-530 in Pine Bluff.

You should definitely be working for the highway department though. You have good ideas.

Check out the current I-22 project. They're building US 78 up to standard between Memphis and Birmingham. When complete, it will be I-22. That route definitely was needed.
