It's still a freeway loop even if it covers more than one municipality.

There are larger ring roads than the Hamilton-Burlington one.

There are various ring roads worldwide that straddles a border (municipal, federal, international) falling into different jurisdictions.

They are all used for bypass purposes of all kinds, e.g. trucks going through town, Toronto-Windsor, Toronto-Niagara, Windsor-Niagara, they all take different sections of the ring road system.

Granted, one can argue that parts are bottlenecked during rush hour, but it's technically still a ring road encompassing a greater Hamilton-Burlington city footprint. I've often made decisions to go home in one direction or another -- by going either clockwise or counterclockwise on the "ring road" depending on circumstances, e.g. I was in Burlington for a reason, then I needed to make it 180 degrees around the circumference of the "ring" to the other end, I was presented with both GPS route choices via Google Maps to choose.
