The Bay Area is one of very few (if any) areas that uses all numbered spurs of a parent interstate - all in the fact that they had to name yet another interstate in the area "out of order" - I-238.

I-238 is named after the State Route 238, the number which the freeway carried earlier.

Those LA landscapes may look nice on the pictures to someone who has never been to that area, but they aren't that nice when you see them in person. My memories of LA include endless concrete motorways, concrete street pavement, palms, and sun that you can't hide from Endless suburbia, I would say. Universal Studio was actually quite nice.

I think this is coming round off the 101 onto the 110. It's the 110 you can see ahead of you. Correct me if I'm wrong

Holy hell imagine if the US (Los Angeles especially) had spent the money on rail that they've spent on these concrete jungles? You'd have the most fantastic public transport system in the world.

What's with exits off both the left and right side of the freeways, that's pretty random and confusing isn't it?

I think youre talking about the HOV lanes.
On the pic of the 105/110 interchange the car from which the photo is taken is coming down the HOV ramp from the 105 which is a seperate flyover and connects again to the HOV lane on the 110.

I love taking I-70 through the mountains during the summer. Wintertime, not so much (scary as hell)
