Interstate 83 extension in MD-VA-NC
The Greensboro / Baltimore Corridor .

A section of Interstate 83 that runs into Baltimore
would become spur I-183.

This is a proposal for extending I-83 from north of Baltimore,MD southwestward across a new Potomac river crossing east of Leesburg,VA.

The I-83 corridor would run southward on the eastern side of the Blue ridge mountains by way of U.S. 29 crossing I-64 south of Charlottesville continuing to Lynchburg,Danville then ending at the eastern loop of the new Greensboro Beltway at I-85/I-40. Some of U.S. 29 would be used.
See links below.

This would add another North-South Interstate highway in between
I-81,I-95 making it safer for travel on Interstates 81,95 .

Since I-81 & I-95 does not connect with Greensboro,Danville,
,this would allow traffic
to bypass around gridlocked areas of Suburban Maryland,
Washington DC,Northern Virginia.

Travelers wouldn't have to travel though the congested areas of
Richmond, Petersburg, & Roanoke to use I-81 & I-95 in the region
to travel north or south.
