Interstate Frequently Asked Questions
Quote

Why doesn't the Interstate System have an I-50?

The Interstate numbering plan was based on the plan used to number the U.S. numbered highways, but in mirror image (for example, U.S. 1 is on the East Coast, while I-5 is on the West Coast; U.S. 10 is in the north while I-10 is in the south). In both plans, numbers ending in zero are used for transcontinental and other major multi-State routes. However, one of the rules for Interstate numbering is that numbers are not duplicated on Interstate highways and U.S. numbered routes in the same State. Duplicate numbers would be confusing for motorists; for example, if told to take "Route 50," the motorist might follow the wrong one. Because the Interstate numbering plan is a mirror image of the U.S. numbered highway plan, I-50 would be located in some of the same States as U.S. 50 (Ocean City, Maryland, to Sacramento, California). Therefore, "50" has not been used for an Interstate route.

Some google expert needs to confirm the rumor that every so many miles of the interstate be straight to allow for landing of military aircraft.

I ain't got the time or desire so have at it.

Not an expert but:

But I do know the following statement is false: The Eisenhower Interstate Highway System requires that one mile in every five must be straight. These straight sections are usable as airstrips in times of war or other emergencies.

Once again, we have a lot of questions.

Not an interstate, but the Allsup's in Matador, Texas is at the intersection of Hwy 70 and Hwy 70.

Why do we drive on a parkway and park in a driveway?

A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.
