    Barby E-Mailed me this from Wikipedia:

    In the Portland metropolitan area, I-84 is sometimes referred to as the "Banfield Freeway" or simply "the Banfield", although the official name is the Banfield Expressway. This freeway is named after Thomas H. Banfield, the chairman of the Oregon Transportation Commission from 1943 to 1950.
