Highway in Texas: Mentioned in the Bible?

I mention this because fostering and promoting stupidity and ignorance is a grand evil in my mind. Apparently there is a small group of True Believers in the Midwest that thinks Interstate Highway I-35 is a highway mentioned in the Bible:
"A highway shall be there, and a road, and it shall be called the Highway of Holiness." -- Isaiah Chapter 35, Verse 8
Is it possible that this "highway" mentioned in Chapter 35 is actually Interstate 35 that runs through six U.S. states, from southern Texas to northern Minnesota?
Yeah, about as likely as a serial child molester and convicted fraud named Joseph Smith finding gold plates in upstate New York that recounted Christ's resurrection and ministry.
Some Christians have faith that is indeed the case. Some of the faithful believe that in order to fulfill the prophecy of I-35 being the "holy" highway, it needs some intensive prayer first.
Give me a break.
