In NYC it was always "The BQE" or "The FDR" or the triboro. I guess they tried to officially rename the triboro bridge. Or "the tunnel" event though there were a few of them, everybody knew which tunnel you were talking about. And the Hutch and The Belt. And yeah, New England. In Maine, 95 and 295 were just numbers amongst my people, and Route 302, route 35, and occasionally it was "The Payne Road" some of the more important thoroughfares got a "the"

Here it’s ”The Ford” or “The Lodge” or “The Southfield”. But when you call a road by number you preface it with “I” or “US” or “M”, no definite articles. If you use a definite article for a numbered freeway around here, people will think you are Canadian.
