I'm surprised the traffic reporters don't still call that section "128" then.  It makes as much sense as calling I-93 south of Boston "The Expressway" since there are no signs indicating it as such, or the part of I-93 from Canton to Braintree "128".

Well, gotta go.  I have to pay my phone bill to New England Telephone.
