I'll agree that the Brownsville/McAllen/Pharr, TX area is the largest urbanized area in the contiguous USA with no full motorway connections to the outside World (there are several 2x2 expressways connecting it in several directions, though). OTOH, the I-69 complex will arrive there in a few years, eliminating that deficiency. Other places in the USA with no direct motorway connections to the outside World and no plans for any that I am aware of include Bend, OR and Walla Walla, WA. Also, even though it is not in a contiguous state, Anchorage, AK has no motorway connections to the outside World (I am discounting 'island' places like Honolulu, HI and San Juan, PR).

When the limit is 70mph? I'm guessing it was due to some sort of accident that had happened...

I don't know, it was on the radio. The judge did tell him to either put his foot down or stay off the motorway.

In the lists for Italian cities that you provided I saw towns as Vigevano or Crema, which are in Milan metro area that is quite well served by motorways. I wouldn't say they've not a motorway access at all
Anyway there is a project to build a motorway junction between Pavia and Vercelli linking also Vigevano. For Crema they're upgrading SS Paullese, which links Crema to Milan, second branch to motorway standards (the first branch already is a motorway)

For Lombardy region I would rather mention Sondrio (22k) which is a provincial capital.

The Bournemouth/Poole/Christchurch metro area has 400k inhabitants and no motorway, though again it does have a dual-carriageway connection to the motorway network.

The motorway already exists but until M'diq, a small city near Ceuta. There's also the Tangier - Tanger-Med motorway but no one passes by Ceuta.
