I saw this post ant was thinking of the I-84 then I-86 then back to I-84 
stretch from Sturbridge MA to Hartford CT (had changed to I-86 when they 
"THOUGHT" I-84 would go over to Providence....then changed it back to I-84 
whne they killed the I-84 to Providence idea...

Oh, and WTAG made me think THIS was the I-86 in question.....
