No exits for 80km? It must be a record (although understandable, considering Kazakhsan's low population density)!

US 101, Salinas, CA

October 28, 2014

A 2 mile stretch of US 101 in northern Salinas, California, has been converted to a full freeway. It has cost $ 226 million.

The Espinosa Road / Russell Road intersection has been replaced by an overpass, and a new interchange at Sala Road has been constructed. Further north to Prunedale, a concrete median barrier has been installed, effectively making this a free-flow highway as well, though it features several right-in, right-out accesses.
