Fictional I-72 begins where I-283 leaves off in Middletown, PA.  I-72 follows the PA-283
freeway to the US-30 freeway, then runs on a freeway alignment roughly parallelling US-30
from Lancaster to US-202.  It then multiplexes with US-202 and fictional I-87 to West
Chester, then makes a dash to the Commodore Barry Bridge.  I-72 multiplexes with fictional
I-895 across the bridge, then on a freeway alignment connecting to the Atlantic City
Expressway.  I-72 runs the length of the expressway to Atlantic City.

Fictional I-72 would be a relief route, sparing motorists going between Atlantic City
and Harrisburg (and points west) from negotiating I-76 through Philadelphia.

NOTES:
I-72 in New Jersey uses exit numbers that increase from east to west, a clear violation
of the exit number scheme.  Reason for that is because the Atlantic City Expressway marks
exit numbers and mile markers as miles from Atlantic City.
I-72/I-895 multiplex:  Exit numbers are the same for 72 and 895.  From the eastern split,
the mileage east to Atlantic City via I-72 is the same as the mileage north to the Betsy
Ross Bridge
Numbers in brackets (along the I-87 multiplex) correspond to exit numbers on fictional
I-87.

With the I-72 designation, the following changes would take place:
PA-283 would either be decomissioned or would run as a hidden multiplex to I-72
PA-72 would have to be decommisioned.  Otherwise, exit 25B would be the junction of
I-72 and PA-72.  I'm calling it PA-801
US-30 would be taken off the freeway, and would run via Business US-30 from Exton to
Coatesville
US-322 would be taken off the West Chester Bypass, and would follow Business US-322

3DI's off I-72:
NOTE:  3di's in parenthesis are not decendants off I-72, but, they could be:
(I-976):  Provides access from I-72 to the Pennsylvania Turnpike near Downingtown
I-172:  Provides access from I-72 to I-895

I-72 from Middletown, PA to Atlantic City, NJ
