In fact, IIRC, the stretch from the 95/93 intersection in Canton to the 93/3 intersection in Braintree is CALLED 128 even though it is no longer formally recognized as such (I believe 128 from Canton to Peabody is still formally recognized as 95/128).

And that caused me some confusion once, when I was coming back from 
Brockton on Route 24.  I wanted to go north on Route 128 to the Dedham 
exit, but the sign said "93 South," and I ended up going the wrong way.  
I don't know what was so wrong about continuing to designate it as Rt. 
128 along with whatever Interstate numbers they wanted to give it.  The 
sign might have been understandable.
