Vermont Route 289
Length: About 2 miles
Termini: VT 117 and VT 2A
Reason for being a state route: Because of enviromental impact problems involved in interstatedom, VT 289 was reduced to a Super 2, and is under construction.
History: Is not finished at all...the Super 2 is still under construction, and about 8-10 miles long. One of the shorter bypasses I know of.
This was to have been I-289, but the fact that there were those ridiculous "enviromental impact" studies made Vermont build it as a state route. Expansion is a possibillity, but I doubt it.
Vermont is also home to another stupid 3di that Isn't, VT 191 in Newport. That is a 2 lane spur for a town of 4,000. But I'll describe it in detail on that page.
