Question for anyone who knows the Pittsburgh area, or who's been there since the end of last June:
I picked up a new AAA TourBook for Pennsylvania over the weekend, and the little map in front shows what was Pa. 60 (from Pittsburgh Airport to New Castle) as I-376. Likewise, the maps for the Pittsburgh area in the TourBook show exit numbers on 376 in the city that are in the 70s. (And for that matter, exit numbering for what's left of 279 that starts at 376.)
I knew this was coming, but I was on 376 and 279 at the end of last June and this hadn't happened yet. So I'm curious whether these changes have really happened on the signage.

I think its been put on hold , intill they find some money. The PA Turnpike Authority is a bit corrupt. Or the fact that the NJ Turnpike Widening is getting criticized for being too costly and might be put on hold aswell. I think its also behind schedule

you don't have to come here, we don't need you, there are millions of people that want to come to this great state to see all that we have to offer.

if you don't like Arizona that is fine, There are 49 other states where people can go.

The law is against Ilegals, not against Latinos.
all the latinos that I know support this law.
so if you are Ilegal, I would say stay away from AZ, because we will enforce the law

The corridor running northeast from Lafayette is the Hoosier Heartland Expressway. It's completion will result in a four lane divided highway connecting Lafayette to Fort Wayne. The project is funded and currently under construction.

Also under construction is the "Fort to Port" project, which will widen U.S. 24 to four lanes from Fort Wayne to Toledo. Indiana's portion of the project is under construction at the moment. Ohio has upgraded some of its portion of U.S. 24 between the two cities.

How in the hell can one distinguish an "illegal" from a legal resident?

Face it, the law legalizes racial profiling. Hispanics will be targeted and sought out by law enforcement based solely on their appearance and stereotype of what an illegal looks like.

Well, at this point the only group of people that are coming over to the USA in such high numbers illegally are those of Mexican and Central American origin.

The USA is not going to be as strict as Mexico is on immigration laws(and I don't think Mexico themselves needs to be so tough either, read their laws and then come back and say that Arizona is being too tough).

I'm sorry Mexico, but I know why you have to be hypocritical(remittance payments from the USA back to Mexico are a huge part of the economy down there, and you want the American money but no Illegal Immigration problem wherein turn your pesos are being siphoned off to Guatemala and points South), but it still doesn't make it right.

Everyone looks to Europe as a model for open borders, but let's be completely honest. With Mexico's current socio-economic and crime issues, they would never be brought into the Schengen Zone were Mexico in Europe. That's why the Balkans and Ukraine are still a few years away from being brought into Schengen and why Western Europe is still leery of bringing Romania and Bulgaria into the fold.

Until Mexico makes the kind of sweeping economic changes within their country to elevate and create their own middle class, there stands little hope of them ever reaching the same level as Canada.

Here's 1 recommendation that would go a long way toward helping: Allow foreign oil companies to operate their own gas stations. Pemex's monopoly is not economically smart. Here's another recommendation: Allow foreigners to directly own property on the coastlines instead of by way of trusts. On the surface these don't sound like they would benefit the locals, but I believe otherwise.

Looks like a fun drive this reminds of one the things I like about our roads that they tend to just follow the terrain. At least from the pics I've seen you don't see that in European roads

Well Europe lacks terrain for the most part but go watch a highway video from Spain just as impressive.

Drove I8 in opposite direction from Phoenix,AZ to San Diego,CA and it was one of the most impressing roads during my trip through the West.
Where the video ends, desert landscapes take over.

Here a few pictures of about 50 miles further east, called Imperial Sand Dunes :

Nice pictures. I always thought Interstate H201 should have been called Interstate 2H1. It looks better and has a cooler ring to it.
