I-295, Maine

I stumbled upon this toll plaza on the northern end of Interstate 295 in Maine, just before the I-95 interchange. The toll plaza utilizes an abandoned bridge of the former interchange.

Nice way to recycle a bit of old infrastructure

More Houston freeways:










Some examples of signage connected to hurricane evacuation plans:






I like the fact they thought about placing rumble strip in the middle of the hard shoulder, right between the wheels of vehicles using it during evacuation.

Very nice pictures, but more specific locations would be interesting, if you know them.

I stumbled on it in person last Sunday. :-)
(Well, passed through it. Didn't realize that it was an abandoned bridge, or anything. But that reminds me that there are signs on the Maine Turnpike informing people that it's a "National Civil Engineering Landmark," or something like that, opened in 1947. (I think it was opened in '47 from the southern terminus to Falmouth, just north of Portland; what is now called the Falmouth Spur was the last few miles of it. Extension to Augusta came later.)

I-64, Daniel Boone Bridge, MO

The 1935 span of the Daniel Boone Bridge in suburban St. Louis will be replaced by a 4-lane bridge for eastbound traffic.

on Interstate 5 between Bakersfield and Los Angeles, decisions on lane choices are required at times. Generally, there is not much of a warning.
