The Glenn & Parks Highway split, Alaska by ap0013, on Flickr

The Glenn Highway (also known as Alaska Highway 1) just north of Anchorage. Believe it or not by US law this is legally considered to be part of the Interstate System despite not being up to Interstate Standards for most of it's length. The only freeway sections on the Glenn Highway are around Anchorage and Wasilla.

^ Think I'd go with Schofield Barracks, despite it being a little out of the way of the H-3. As my avatar might suggest, I'm not much of a Navy man Besides, I rather like being "out" and in New York!

Seward Highway in Alaska just south of Anchorage. As I mentioned earlier under US law this is legally considered to be an Interstate despite not being up to Interstate standard.

For the most part. They were also built for defense purposes as well in aiding Interstate commerce which is why Alaska and Hawaii also have Interstates despite not being near a bordering state.

Some segments of the I-15 CORE project in Utah County are really starting to take their shape.

In a little over a year our 24 mile I-15 freeway rebuild in Utah County will be complete. It will be 5 lanes each way for most of the project; the entire road length will be paved in concrete.

The left shoulder is very wide. It looks like they plan to turn that into a HOV lane at some stage?

Grooved concrete no less! Not only is that surface a dream to drive on, its practically invincible.
