Google Maps promotes US 209 to an interstate

UPDATE 10.16.2012 – They fixed it. I’m sure my friend Tom is thrilled that his sleepy hometown of Nesquhoning, Pa. now has an interstate highway going through the center of it:

US Route 209US 209 which goes from PA 147 north of Harrisburg (it should go down to US 22/322 though) to US 9W in Kington, N.Y. (it really should go all the way to US 9 on the other side of the Hudson River) joins the ranks of mis-labled highways that I keep documenting; I guess this is a new hobby. Some parts of the highway are now marked as Interstate 209.

Near Port Jervis, N.Y.:

There are a couple of other places in Pennsylvania that have I-209 signs, but not my friend Fritz’s Elizabethville. I’m sure Tom is thrilled about these bragging rights.
