Interstate 35
split into Interstate 35E and Interstate 35W at Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, a similar split into Interstate 35E and Interstate 35W at Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota exists, as well as Interstate 69C, Interstate 69E
Interstate 69E
and Interstate 69W in South Texas. Interstate 480N in Ohio exists and is designated as such on mile markers but is otherwise unsigned. However, there were once many more, as the three-digit Interstates were not designated until after all major routes were assigned numbers, including some short connections and spurs. (A few of the shortest, including I-190 and I-195, were assigned three-digit numbers almost immediately.) Most were not equal splits like on I-35, but had the main route continue through, and often the suffixed route never returned to its parent
