Take a look at the freeways in Riverside County. I-215 was just repaved and look amazing. The 60/215 segment is being completely redone and the 60/91/215 interchange is huge.

I really need to get pictures of all of the work being done there.

Yeah, you see those signs a lot in California. Useless, and stupid.

The photographer's back in that image is right tight to the USCustoms station at the San Ysidro (San Diego), CA border crossing from Mexico. It is the World's busiest international border crossing. They basically tell people leaving the checkpoint that the highway splits very quickly and to get to the correct side of the road.

Yes, it could be clearer.

..........I-5..............................I-805........
...........................................................
San Diego West +..............El Cajon...........
National City.....................San Diego East.
Imperial Beach...................Chula Vista......
......................................Bonita.............
^........^........^..................^..........^....

^ = arrow
+ = airport symbol

Hehe, Americans are obsessed with road numbers. When driving on the I-95 through Maine, heading towards Canada, there are such small towns along the highway, that they just put "THRU TRAFFIC". I was thinking, ok, 'no one' knows those small towns there, but at least they could put "Canada".

And then to be accurate, you'd have to add a couple of '500m's at the bottom, the split is that close.

Some pictures of interstates in my area...not great, but I'm showing them anyway...(not mine, BTW)

Interstate 91












Interstate 84












Interstate 291 (relatively recent, completed in 1994)

That 291 doesn't look that good for a 13 year old interstate highway.

Those are for the HOV lanes. (High Occupancy Vehicle).

But you should check out Cleveland, they have red interstate signs there.

this could be the reason is it just on this airport? I can't remember seeing red signs on Dulles, Phoenix Sky Harbor or Orlando Airport. actually that's also the only pic with a red sign I have found
