Why not upgrade US-23 to an Expressway south of the Proposed Interstate 66 and designate it as part of the Extended Interstate 26 since it connects with Interstate 181 at the TN State Line and most of it is going to part of the Extended Interstate 26 anyway and name it as the Trans Contiental SE Highway from the Mountains of KY to the Shore of SC.
