Top Ten Best Interstate Highways In the U.S.

The Top Ten

1 I-90

West section is good, but east section is filled to the brim with tolls - Maddox121

Boo... The I-90 west of Wisconsin may be great, but other than that, the I-90 is not the best Interstate Highway route (the Massachusetts segment and the New York segment are burdened with tolls and other issues).
The best Interstate Highway route is either I-15, I-80, I-70, I-40, I-10, or I-25.

Best section: Montana, Idaho, or Washington state
Worst section: Massachusetts or New York

2 I-95

Possibly the best interstate, if you count the New Jersey Turnpike as I-95 - Maddox121

I-95 should bypass Pennsylvania. It should be signed as a spur route instead, and the entire New Jersey Turnpike should be signed as I-95. Eliminate I-95 in Pennsylvania. And the I-476 should be renumbered as I-85.

Best segments: Maine, New Jersey, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida.
Worst segments: Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania.

As someone from Massachusetts, I completely agree that the Massachusetts segment is one of the worst segments of this highway. I'll just sum up the segment in three words: Busy busy BUSY! - InfinateSuperstorm

3 I-80

Like it's northern neighbor, good in the west, but the east section has tolls galore - Maddox121

From Chicago to San Francisco


4 I-70

Like I-90, it's missing a section - Maddox121

Too bad the I-70 in Maryland wasn't completed all the way to I-95 in Baltimore. But, what about the I-70 in Utah? Surely it terminates at I-15 in Cove Fort, Utah, but it would be interesting if the I-70 were to be extended to Fresno, California. And the new western terminus of the I-70 would be at I-5 in Fresno, California.

It gets kind of boring in the kansas part, but I tell you what, going through nice mountains soon, and it's a long road of cities, mountains, scenery, desert, flat, It goes all the way up to Utah

5 I-5
6 I-75

The interstate I used most of my life since it's in both Ohio (where I used to live) and Georgia (where I now live) - Maddox121

The Mackinac Bridge... connects the UP to the Lower Peninsula. - Turkeyasylum

7 I-35
8 I-10

The Interstate of the Gulf, mainly remember this from my NOLA trip - Maddox121

9 I-94
10 I-15

The Contenders

11 I-45
12 I-4

I-4 Is obvious, Disney World Vacations :), but bad traffic in peak seasons - Maddox121

13 I-40

Featured in the movie "Cars", this interstate is noted as the death of Route 66 and horizontal Tennessee traditional highways - Maddox121

Great and remarkable highway route. But if the I-40 were to be extended to Bakersfield, California, then that would be very convenient. Or it would be much more convenient if it were to be extended to within the coast of California.

14 I-469

Auxiliary Interstate for Fort Wayne, IN - westofohio

15 I-440
16 I-83
17 1-30
18 I-86
19 I-64
20 I-55
21 I-49

Runs through Ozarks in Arkansas, not quite finished but still beautiful

I agree, needs to be finished between Fort Smith and Texarkana though.

22 I-540
23 I-69

Eventually going to run from Port Huron, MI to Interstate 2 on the Rio Grande in Texas - westofohio

24 I-610
25 I-410
26 I-81
27 I-97
28 I-12
29 I-59
30 I-25
31 I-20
32 I-17
33 I-19
34 I-66
35 I-44
36 I-27
37 I-77
38 I-84

I-84 (Oregon-Utah) > I-84 (Pennsylvania-Massachusetts)

39 I-88
40 I-57
41 I-24
42 I-2

So small

43 I-8
44 I-30
45 I-16
46 I-99
47 I-65
48 I-79
49 I-87

Why not renumbered the I-278 and the I-295 as I-87? If renumbered, the new southern terminus of the I-87 would be at NY 25 in in Cunningham Park, Queens, NY.
