Interstate possibility?[edit]

Is there any considerations of an Interstate designation being added on this corridor west of (and/or concurrent with) I-74? Something along the lines of, say, I-36? CrazyC83 01:01, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

At this time, US 74 is not being replaced nor speculated to become a new Interstate highway anytime soon. -WashuOtaku (talk) 03:14, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Independence Boulevard (Charlotte) merger[edit]

Proposed to merge Independence Boulevard (Charlotte) into article as it is entirely part of US 74.

Where US 74's western beginning is[edit]

It is correct that US 74's signage is poor. But US 74 actually begins underneath a bridge on Interstate 75 at mile marker 24 in Cleveland, Tennessee. Exit 20 is where the US 64-74 Bypass begins, known as APD-40. After 74 begins under the bridge it goes downtown, splits up then goes under APD-40. After, US 74 runs together with US 64.

Can you confirm that somehow? I look on both Google Maps/Street View and Yahoo Maps and I cannot confirm other than where the bypass ends on I-75 (Heck, Google Maps thinks US 74 continues to Chattanooga). I hate Tennessee's signage methods of hidden highways and such, it's insane. --WashuOtaku (talk) 14:57, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
