I'm guessing it's a Native American name?

New York seems to use wider pavement markings than Washington state. Six inches I'm guessing?

I-99 construction and updates in northern Pennsyvania and New York, from Williamsport north to Painted Post:



I-99 construction in northern Lycoming County.




Mountains in Tioga County.



This exit, near Tioga for PA 287, used to be where the northernmost portion of the future I-99 expressway was completed. The expressway is now completed several miles more, into New York.



Bypassing a factory near Lawrenceville, Pennsylvania, that the old US Route 15 used to go past.



Bypassing houses near Lawrenceville.



Entering New York on the new portion of the expressway.



The northernmost completed section of the expressway is now just south of Lindley, New York. Work is being done to link this area to the expressway near Corning and Painted Post.




The Green Shingles Inn, south of Lindley. In a couple years drivers will be bypassing this place.



Scenery that won't be seen once the new section of expressway is built and I begin using that.

Some of the future I-99 is completed in New York, as seen in my border picture, and pictures of the construction of the next section are also included.

I don't get why it has that number?

Nowhere in New York is both east of 95 and north-south oriented for a two digit I-99? Why the **** is it in Pennsylvania? If that's how highways are going to be numbered in the future then I propose I-35 in Austin be renamed I-420 because I say so

Now it would be neat if 101 became I-3 or an I-1 along the California coast. Though I suppose the Hawaii "interstates" have those numbers.

Interstate 70 & 55 interchange (St. Louis)

Took this one a few months ago.



I doubt this will work, though. This is my first photo post attempt. Sorry.

Interesting section of I-70, it's quite substandard for only a short section.

No kidding. It's only 2X2 for part of its trip through downtown, so naturally it gets jammed horribly at rush hour.

Anyway, here's some Chicago. This is the bowl interchange by downtown (I-90/94 meets I-290)
From the ground:



And from the air (Sears Tower.... or Willis, if you prefer)

That's actually called the 'Circle' interchange (I-90/94/290/Congress Extension)

New section of interstate opens

http://www.courierpress.com/news/200...ng-new-stretc/

In an interesting twist, due to a nearby construction-related road closure, InDOT (Indiana Department of Transportation) is now detouring traffic off of a regular state highway onto the southbound side (in a 2x1 arrangement) of an approximately 2.5 km long under-construction segment of I-69, just north of I-64 at I-164 near Evansville, IN. When all of I-69 is completed in Indiana in a few years, I-69 is expected to replace I-164 south of I-64.

The entire highway on the section here will be complete sometime next year.

I'm going to take a guess at US abbreviations and say that 'So Nyack' is South Nyack? Like So Cal?

Im going to make some pics of the I25 and I70 soon. Im going to Denver and Breckenridge a lot so it shouldn't be a problem.. It's just that I think my hostparents will find it very strange when I make pictures of a highway out of their car lol.

The politician (Bud Shuster) who lobbied hard for the route (since it's in what was his district) included wording in the legislation that the route be named Interstate 99.

It's basically a giant ego trip.

I don't know why you are celebrating this. I-69 is an enormous boondoggle. The state doesn't even half any funding to finish the second half of the interstate, and that is assuming the pot of money it earmarked for the first three sections is enough to build them.
