considering large freeway projects are rare in this region, it's not weird that a DOT has to spend a large proportion of their budget to a new large project (as this bridge).

very true and besides - this place is horrible in the morning. Also please consider that it is close to one of the largest USA universities Yale university. so in the morning it is murder to get through the bridge.

Personal , i don't take I-95 to Boston or New England, i take I-287 East to I-684 North to I-84 East to I-90 East to Boston from my home in North New Jersey, I-95 no doubt needs widening its not just the Highway , the Acela needs a new route through CT, all the old Bridges force the Acela to go 30 to 40 mph.

California

Anyway i found more Google Streetview HD sections
I-80 @ Exit 27


I-80 @ The 580 Freeway


Somewhere in Northern Cali off the I-5


Colorado

off I-70 in Frisco,CO



I-70 WB in Silver Plume,CO


I-70 Westbound


Looking at I-70 Westbound in Idaho Springs,CO


I-70 / US-6 Split




Hope you liked, i'll be posting more in the coming weeks

That depends which way DOT's make them available. Some have PDF maps, some have interactive maps (yuck) and some have Excel or other table files.

It amazes me how huge the freeways in Texas are. Also, you can tell they were developed in the automobile era because of the lack of freeways through residential areas and roadside commercial big box areas right in to near downtown.

In the Twin Cities the freeways are completely different with most of them sunken with sound barriers and they run through residential sections of the city.

I beg to differ in Texas a lot of highways ran through residential neighborhoods they had sound walls and wide open space in the suburbs, in the city they had sound walls with the neighborhoods on the other side.

Here are some traffic logs for Connecticut...
(warning, the first link on the page doesn't work, the data is on the historical data).
http://www.ct.gov/dot/cwp/view.asp?a=3532&q=330402

The busiest stretch of highway in the state is I-84 in Downtown Hartford, at exit 48, with 172,500 cars a day.

Also, I-95 stays with over 100k cars from the NY border to near New Haven...

While the stacked overchanges would be welcomed in the commonwealth of Massachusetts, I think the red and blue columns, along with the stars look tacky .
