Interstate 9 has never existed.

I-109 is an early California proposed number inconsistent with the interstate highway numbering convention.

I-109 (preliminary numbering)  California (link)

On April 1, 1958, California submitted to AASHO a numbering plan for its proposed interstates, including 3-digit spurs numbered in the low 100s and not associated with their parent interstates. Interstate 109 was the proposed number for what became I-280. [1note]

This number was not compliant with AASHO's numbering convention and was rejected.

On August 7, 1958, California had bought in to the system and submitted I-280. This was approved, along with the rest of California's original interstate highway system, on Nov. 10, 1958. [2note]

(Earlier in 1957, the state had submitted I-3 for this highway.) [1note]
