I think it's fascinating and funny that on a small* island in the Pacific there happens to be such a major freeway

*I realize Oahu is not that small, and that the islands put together would be only slightly smaller than Belgium. But still

I-225, Denver, CO

CDOT Opens Final Northbound Phase of I-225 Widening Project

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has completed major construction on the northbound phase of I-225 between Mississippi Avenue and Parker Road.

Started in 2012, this project with a total cost of $63 million widens I-225 between Mississippi Avenue and Parker Road to accommodate three through-lanes plus an auxiliary lane in each direction. In partnership with RTD, the CDOT led project has also constructed elements of the light rail line between the Nine Mile and proposed Iliff Stations. The completion of this latest phase removes the final northbound I-225 bottleneck providing northbound lane continuity from I-25 to I-70.
Full press release: http://www.coloradodot.info/news/201...dening-project

I-225 runs through Aurora, one of the largest suburb jurisdictions in the U.S. At one time there was talk of Aurora passing Denver in population. Its population was estimated at 339,000 in 2013, up from 75,000 in 1970. However, Denver population growth has recovered since the 1990s.

I-885, Durham, NC

North Carolina gets another Interstate Highway. The East End Connector project in Durham will be signed as Interstate 885.

From the signage plan:

They are starting next month to extend the East End Connector to NC-147. It was already planned in the early 1980s, but they only had money for NC-147 at that time. It will be around 4 miles long when completed.

Yes, and NC147 between the East End Connector and I-40.

The East End Connector links two freeways that link to interstates, but in and of itself doesn't meet another interstate. Even interstates ought to connect to interstates at both ends, rather than at no ends...

The East End Connector links up with I-85. It is currently signed as US 70 bypass.

Sorry, I assumed that the US70 freeway was a different one.

I-885 will link I-85 and I-40 and be about 8 miles long - the signage plan makes it clear that it will reach I-40 as well as I-85

I tried to look for a map about this connector and am still confused as to where it will go.
