It seems like they've updated it. If I remember correctly, last time it wasn't shown correctly in Google Maps.

That imagery on Google Earth is almost 10 years old. Trucks and cars are now separated at that interchange.

You mean the A5/A7 interchange?

On the pics in Verso's link (and google maps) there's only one extra truck lane towards the A5. This avoids slow trucks having to move two lanes to the left.
Those who want to stay on the A7 use the same two lanes as cars at that interchange.

It looks like a very good and effective solution, but it's not really the same as in the example I posted above (I5/CA14)

The imagery is outdated, but the map is correct

We don't call it "highway I-95", it's just plain old "I-95". Also, it doesn't just go to Pennsylvania, it goes to Maine. Actually, it goes right to the Canadian border.

Interstate 95's northern terminus...from AA roads...

Last exit in Maine- note the 25 mph interstate speed limit as Candian customs is just around the corner...

That's it folks...

New Brunswick is in the Atlantic time zone- four hours behind London.

A short expressway connects Interstate 95 with the Trans-Canada Highway (NB 2). The "continuation" of I-95 is New Brunswick highway 95. Note: NB's route shield is in the shape of the province.

In New Brunswick, Major roads have green shields- somewhat important roads are "blue" and minor roads have black route markers. The Trans-Canada Highway is noted with a maple leaf shield.

Interstate 64 in St. Louis

Interstate 64 reopened today after a massive reconstruction project between I-170 and Kingshighway Boulevard.

[IMG]http://i50.************/1zyzb47.png[/IMG]

Traffic pattern changes:

The new section of I-64 between I-170 to Kingshighway was back to pre construction levels and the section from Kingshighway to the Poplar Street Bridge increased 33 percent.

All of the other interstates around the region had significantly reduced traffic. Here is a summary of the changes:

· I-44, from I-270 to I-55 in both directions, decreased 20-30 percent

· I-70, from I-270 to Poplar Street Bridge in both directions, decreased 10-20 percent

· I-55, from I-270 to Poplar Street Bridge in both directions, decreased 10-15 percent

· I-270 overall reduced 5-10 percent on the full loop. The southbound section from I-64 to I-44 reduced 22 percent

Are there any future plans to extend I-64 or I-44? They both end in St. Louis - they could be connected as one continuous interstate and save a valuable number for some other interstate in the future.

As far as I know, I-64 will be extended to I-70 just west of St. Louis. I don't know about I-44, there are enough Interstate corridors east of St. Louis (I-64, I-70), although there were some ideas of turning US 50 to Cincinnati into a freeway.

When I look at metric distances my brain doesn't really know how to process them. My brain always tries to convert back into the imperial system.

33km is how many miles?....haha

20 miles. I just know that in one second. I guess it's what you're used to. I am used to both miles and kilometers, but not areas or volumes.

I really think the metric system should be applied in the US. All you need is signs showing distances in both units.
Did they remove those overheads from the Maine Tpk, or are they still in function??

Maine and New Hampshire put up those signs a few years ago- I believe they're still up. That was not some old 1970s project...The Maine ones went up- I'm guessing- in the mid-to-late 90s.

Enjoy the I-19 metric signs while you can--they are scheduled to disappear since ADOT wants to use ARRA funds to change the current signs (which were installed in 1999) to English units. They replace earlier metric signs which were installed in 1981, and IMO were better since they didn't attempt to bell the metric cat by using explicit units everywhere.

I was born and raised in metric country but after few years of living in UK I can easilly think in both units I don't convert them I just think in both depending from situation. The same apply to speed.
Distance units are the simplest to adapt.
One thing I can't get is measuring temperature using Fahrenheit degrees. Mad system. So illogical
Luckily UK uses Celsius
Somwhere in between is all the mess with stones, pounds, ounces, bushels and other medieval units

All of I-19 (Tucson AZ to the southern border at Nogales) both south and northbound is in the metric system. I've gone throught 2 times I think and it is a bit wierd but I like it. Getting used to the metric system isn't all that hard really. I was raised in the US with the english system and then moved to Mexico, so I know what thats like.
