I think also this one is very impressive: I-70 through San Rafael swell, Utah:



The highway crosses one of the most remote areas in the contiguous 48 states. This road was completed in 1970 from scratch, since there was not an old road or trail along that direction and the entire area was not accessible before, except by air or hiking.

110mi (177km) is the longest section of road with no gas stations in the contiguous 48 states.

In real life, electronic toll collection was first introduced in Bergen, Norway in 1986, and well into the 21th century many countries still struggle to implement it.

Indeed, it is. You’ve got to love the stretch next to the border with Italy.
