I-278 Goethals Bridge, New York

The Goethals Bridge second span seems to make good progress.

The meeting of the Route Numbering Committee a couple of weeks ago has approved the removal of I-895 in New York (a pathetically short one-way interstate at JFK) as well as the addition of I-57 along US67 between I-40 and US412 in Arkansas.

The "patetically short one-way interstate at JFK" is I-878, not I-895 which is (was) the Sheridan expressway in the Bronx. There's also a 72 mile I-165 in Kentucky, longer than some 2dis. It will run along the Natcher Parkway.

Anyway, the I-895 removal has made me to rewrite some of my plans. These will eventually cover all of the USA and include several running gags on AARoads, like an 85 mph section West of Washington DC (however not as I-366 but as part of I-666 ), an interstate to Alanland (which is also not included), and a new expressway in Chicago named the Hypotenuse using mostly railroad ROWs.

I-35W, Fort Worth, Texas

An aerial update video of the massive North Tarrant Express project on I-35W in Fort Worth.

The expansion is unbelievable, from four lanes to something four times as wide. The I-35W / I-820 interchange is simply mind-boggling, I wonder if it is the interchange with the most direct connectors in the world. There are 10 90 degree flyovers in this phase, a full build-out could mean 16 direct connectors if they ever build express lanes on I-820 west of I-35W.

Am I the only one amazed at the amount of bridge construction in NYC right now? There are 4 major bridge projects underway. It's going to make a huge difference the the appearance of the city - a lot of these old crumbling substandard bridges will be replaced by modern, high standard ones. Now they just need to deal with their airports, and get Amtrak Gateway going.

I-25, Colorado

Regional media report that $ 350 million in funding has been identified to expand I-25 between Monument and Castle Rock to six lanes. It is the final section of I-25 between Colorado Springs and Denver to be widened to six lanes. Construction could start by summer 2019.

I know, I just made the mistake of flying La Guardia

The bridge construction looks interesting but I'm not sure if the appearance will change much... Brooklyn & Manhattan Bridges, the George Washington, etc will probably remain much more imposing and aesthetically interesting
