US 385 north of the NE L62A junction is a federal high-priority corridor-the Heartland Expressway. In 2000, a new alignment opened between Alliance and Chadron west of the previous alignment (which became NE 87 and NE L7E). At the present time, there are no plans to upgrade this segment to expressway standards.
