just FYI its Interstate 84 not route 84. just a fact. What's the difference between an Interstate route and a US route? US routes were the roads that connected the states and were laid out in the 30's. Most were just regular 2 lane roads. Some US routes are now multi-laned in some areas.

Interstates are expressways (or freeways as they call them out west, Highways east). They usually connect states (but not always) and are multi-laned in both directions. They were laid out in the 50's. I-84 multi lanes Route 7 two lanes each way.

I Adam Elmquist have posted my take to the comment:

What happens when the interstates are bumper to bumper traffic, then they are parkways. LOL.... Most drivers I know do refer to the Interstate Highway as routes too. Its just a shorter way of saying "Interstate Route 84", If you are familiar with road/highway slang its just referred to as Route 84, Hwy 84 or even 84. Interstates are also know as Super Highways but nobody I know uses the term super highway.. Even on the news, reporters on TV say the same thing sometimes, when reporting about traffic or an accident that sort of thing. What people call the road apart from its official terminology shouldn't make too much of a difference, as long as people know what you are referring to. Just like up in some parts of New England people refer to a circle as a rotary.. What about a sandwich then people call it a sub, hoagie, grinder, po-boy whats the difference... If I should be precise about the name of the road why aren't people precise when reading the speed limits signs...

Please read this random article I found on the net about 95. Article published by the media or just the public can vary either way of saying Interstate or Route.. N.J., Pennsylvania officials plan to close longtime gap on Route 95..
