Interstate 755: A Cancelled Urban Freeway
Interstate 755 was a never built freeway proposal, which would have run through downtown St. Louis, MO, connecting I-44/I-55 at its south end, with I-70 on its north end.

A downtown connector for the routes that run through St. Louis was first proposed in 1947, well before the Interstate Highway System would come to fruition.

While the project was cancelled, ghost ramps from both the junction of I-44/I-55 and I-70, which would have connected to the highway, remain in place to this day, serving arterial roads such as Tucker Blvd.
