You're thinking of the Strategic Highway Network, which, together with
the Interstates, is less than half of the entire NHS mileage. The NHS
is a much larger system of main roads, as well as intermodal
connectors (inventoried separately). "The advantage of NHS is that it
encourages states to focus on a limited number of high-priority routes
and to concentrate on improving them with federal-aid funds."
[the use of "high-priority routes" here is confusing, since it's not
the same as the "High Priority Corridors" defined by Congress]
