Vermont could do with something quicker to get from the northwest part of the state to the southwest part. Neither interstate covers that corner at all.

I would agree with this, if we can extend it to the Outer Banks.

In CT a beltway around Hartford is needed. The idea of two major Interstates (I-84 & I-91) intersecting in downtown Hartford without a ring road is so 1950s.

Some years ago one was started (present I-291) but never finished. Connecticut I-291

There is even a full "stack" interchange at I-84 & Rt 9 that is only half used, with ramps to and from nowhere.

Current planning only calls for "improving" the current downtown interchange. Crazy !

It's actually mostly in Alabama- a straight shot north-south route between Birmingham and Panama City, FL. Getting north from the Florida panhandle is often a slow thing with out of the way routing.

I-11, especially the portion between Phoenix and the Las Vegas border. The current road US60 and US93 are largely two lanes. It is probably the only remaining road between two cities larger than a million that are not connected by interstate.

The entire road should run from Nogales, AZ to the Washington/British Columbia border.. Unfortunately, that will not happen in my lifetime.

Florida badly needs an interstate from the West coast to the East coast mid-state.

The one we have now connects Naples to Miami, and does nothing for the those of us in, or around Tampa Bay, or West Palm Beach.

I-4 angles too much. We need a straight West-East highway from just South of Tampa Bay across to Vero/Ft. Pierce.

RT 70 in NJ needs to become a true highway with exits and no traffic lights at least from the Turnpike to the GSP.

I hope Florida never builds another interstate highway. To do so will consume thousands of acres of already quickly vanishing land, much of it extremely vital to the environment here. I cannot imagine a more fragile ecosystem than what Florida has, yet the politicians are only too willing to sacrifice it in the name of so-called “progress”.

I-69 runs from Texas to Michigan, including running through western Kentucky. It runs on what were 3 different parkways, entering the state at Fulton, from west Tennessee and leaving at Henderson, going into southern Indiana. Only thing holding 69 from running completely through the state is a section of the Jackson Purchase Parkway from Fulton to Mayfield that needs to be upgraded to interstate specs, plus a bridge crossing the Ohio River from Henderson to Evansville, In.
I-24 crosses west Ky. from west to east, entering at Paducah on the west and entering Tennessee near Ft. Campbell, Ky.
