A car is being chased and the event is broadcast online. A reporter from a chopper says:
— Benjamin, we're heading west following route 766, where it feeds off the I-80.
The X-Files, episode Drive

What is "feed off" here, please?
Thanks.

    One of the definition of "feeder" is

    a road, service, etc, that links secondary areas to the main traffic network

    so Route 766 (smaler road) is a feeder for/of interstate 80 (I-80) (main network)
