Projects like these should be sponsored by private firms. Let them put up ads/billboards on the sponsored highway. This can provide fund to finish the project.

I doubt that billboards would recoup much of the cost of interstate highways, they go through major metropolitan centers often only every couple hundred miles and billboard ads really aren't that expensive.

Highways are not apps, friend.

Turnpikes were only profitable in the pre-freeway era; trying to fund a highway on ads alone is a financial absurdity.
