If you're going somewhere you'd say something like "I'm on the freeway." I assume it's a similar reason. Like "I'm on the 405." It sounds weird to leave out "the." I don't personally buy the "well the freeways were named before they had numbers" explanation but I suppose that's a better reason that "just because."

That guy and the people that upvoted him clearly want our past in the west to be whitewashed. Concentration camp carries a negative connotation due to the Nazis but the internment camps we had are the literal definition of them. Internment is just a euphemism so people don't associate them with the death camps.
