Interstate 265, United States

December 18

The missing link of Interstate 265 (the Louisville outer beltway) opens to traffic today. It is an almost six mile (10 km) segment of freeway from US 42 in Kentucky to Indiana State Road 62, linking both segments of I-265 in Indiana and Kentucky.

Part of the new freeway is the East End Bridge, a cable-stayed bridge across the Ohio River. The bridge will be tolled, tolls start later this month on both I-265 and I-65 at Downtown Louisville, where a new bridge opened last year.

Xiushan - Songtao Expressway, China

23 December 2016

The 31 kilometer long Xiushan - Songtao Expressway opened to traffic in Chongqing, China. It is the southernmost expressway in Chongqing, and runs from G65 at Xiushan to the Guizhou border near Songtao.

It is not located near the city of Chongqing, which is a 400 kilometer drive from Xiushan. I could not find a number for this expressway. Combined with the Songcong Expressway in Guizhou and G56 Ruili Expressway, it is the shortest route from Chongqing to southern Hunan, being approximately 15 kilometers shorter than G65 Baomao Expressway.

G6 Jingzang Expressway, China

20 October 2016

A while ago, but notable due to the huge length. On 20 October 2016, a 470 kilometer segment of the G6 Beijing - Tibet (Jingzang) Expressway opened to traffic in Qinghai province.

Although there is no recent high-resolution satellite imagery available in this area, Google Earth sentinel imagery from 2016 confirms the expressway in this region. It is mostly a twinning of G109 from Chakazhen to Golmud, with some local changes to the alignment.

It is a high-altitude expressway, most of it runs between 2,800 and 3,600 meters above sea level. It passes Golmud on the south, a 22 kilometer connector north of Golmud also opened to traffic.

G75 Lanhai Expressway, China

28 December 2016

A 63 kilometer segment of the Lanzhou - Haikou (Lanhai) Expressway opened to traffic today in Gansu province. It runs from Lintao to Weiyuan. It is called a 'trial operation'.

This was the relatively easy part of G75 in Southern Gansu. The next stage is far more difficult through very mountainous terrain.

G6011 Nanshao Expressway, China

28 December 2016

A 72 kilometer segment of the G6011 Nanchang - Shaoguan (Nanshao) Expressway opened to traffic in Jiangxi province. It runs between G72 at Xingguo and G76 at Ganzhou.

G6011 is a new north-south route that will serve traffic from Nanchang to Guangzhou. It incorporates several existing expressways, including S10 in Guangdong, S66 and S4503 in Jiangxi and possibly the Changning Expressway that opened to traffic last year (Baidu shows it as such). However, G6011 would have to jump 50 kilometers west at the end of Changning Expressway at Ningdu to Xingguo.
