Named (i.e., where the name is more than just a ... not get 'the'. At least, this is what I've observed.

"Named" does not always mean anything. The Florida State Turnpike used be "named" the Sunshine State Parkway. No one called ... Turnpike". In 1966, they gave up the ghost. On the other hand, I-75 is "Alligator Alley" to all and sundry.

Good grief! Alligator Alley is just a very small part of I-75.
The Beeline Expressway is now becoming the 528 and the signs for "Beeline" are disappearing. Current rental agency car maps don't even show "Beeline".

Ah, I didn't know that. I've been away too long. I always called it "The Beeline" when I was living near it.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Well, there was a Howard Johnson's restaurant on Times Square when I was there about a year ago.

Are things on Times Square? I thought things were in Times Square. Anyone? Richard?

You rang? Things are indeed in* Times Square, not *on.

Are there any real or metaphorical (as with Times Square) squares in the US for which you can use the preposition "on"? Not in my experience.
Haven't we discussed this before?

Inevitably, I'd say.

Yes, the section known as "Alligator Alley" is called "Alligator Alley" and not I-75.

That's just not cricket.

Weird. There's an 'Endless Street' in Salisbury, but no nameless one.

It's quite common to hear "the" in front interstate as in "Take the I-95 to the West Palm Beach exit."

Curiously if this be true, the articles must fly out the window en route, as I've never heard anybody in West Palm Beach say "the I-95."

London? Why not Toronto?
Let us also remember Street Road, in Philadelphia.
