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
Lynchburg,Charlottesville,Culpeper,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.
