I-74, Winston-Salem, North Carolina

NCDOT Awards $154 Million Contract to Build First Section of the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway in Forsyth County

The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded a $154 million contract to build the first section of the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway. Work on the 4-mile section of the eastern part of the Beltway between U.S. 158 and U.S. 421/Business 40 can start as early as December 1. The road should be open to traffic by Nov. 1, 2018, with final vegetation work done by April 30, 2019.

Eventually, the Beltway will provide a 34-mile multi-lane freeway around the northern side of Winston-Salem. The rest of the eastern section of the Beltway will connect U.S. 311 southeast of the city to U.S. 52, and will become a part of the I-74 corridor when finished. The western section will continue around to U.S. 158 on the southwestern side of the city.
Full press release: https://apps.ncdot.gov/newsreleases/...s.aspx?r=10485

How long are those undivided sections?

Are all of them under construction?

there is no much left to build, I would say about 8 miles in that area and then from Wickenburg to the Santa Maria River another 25 miles

everything else from Phoenix to Las Vegas is divided almost freeway standard

Arizona is going to have to do a lot of work to get it upgraded to interstate standards, its mostly dual carriageway but it isn't anywhere close to grade seperated.

The initial phase of the actually signed I-11 will likely run to the Hoover Dam from Las Vegas, and end just over the Arizona border.

I-895, Baltimore, MD

Five-year construction project on I-895 north of Harbor Tunnel to begin 2016

$290 million construction project to replace a large elevated section of Interstate 895 north of the Harbor Tunnel will begin in 2016 and last five years — causing considerable traffic congestion in the process.

The section, known as the Canton Viaduct, was first targeted for replacement years ago, but the project languished amid limited budgets, toll battles and shifting notions on the design for reconstruction.

(...)

The 60-year-old elevated highway is the MdTA's last piece of infrastructure considered structurally deficient. It requires frequent maintenance and portions need upgrades to meet new highway safety standards, the MdTA said.
Full report: http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/mar...113-story.html

$ 290 million to replace a ¾ mile long bridge...

I wonder if it isn't viable to shut the highway down entirely and replace it in 2 years instead of 5. Sure, it would cause traffic headaches, but so will the current plan.

Both the Nevada stretch of the Hoover Dam bypass and I-515 east of I-215 were conditionally approved as Future I-11 in May.

I believe signs are up, but cannot be certain. There are 'Future I-11 corridor' signs northbound at Kingman, and southbound at I-40 exit 71.


Certainly the first road signed as I-11 (albeit for a day) was the Hoover Dam (not bypass)!

Christ sakes, I was just about to post how happy I was that the I-95 toll lane project in the area was almost done. The hits just keep coming.

Almost the entire section from Kingman to Wikieup or Wickenburg is divided. There's 3 or 4 sections where it's undivided two-lane road, typically for about 5 miles or so.

The bypass around Hoover Dam is up and has exits, but south of that, all the way to Kingman, it's semi-limited access. Are they going to upgrade that whole stretch just to build exit ramps for places like Dolan Springs and Chloride?

I-164, Evansville, IN

I-164 Renamed to I-69 by End of Year

Later this week, Indiana Department of Transportation crews and contractors will be replacing Interstate 164 signage in Vanderburgh and Warrick counties with new Interstate 69 shields. Motorists should watch for short-term lane closures as crews work along the interstate and the roads that connect with it.

The conversion will require updating approximately 70 large interstate signs at or near exits and the smaller, blue signs posted at bridges and every two tenths of a mile. Hummel Electric of Evansville is assisting INDOT with the large panel and overhead signs as part of a $1.9 million contract.

INDOT anticipates that all 21 miles of preexisting interstate highway will be renamed to I-69 by the end of this year, weather permitting. Businesses and other organizations are encouraged update their signage, maps and directions.

A year ago, INDOT announced that the Federal Highway Administration and American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials approved Indiana’s request to rename I-164 to I-69. Mile markers and exit numbers on I-69 from Evansville to Crane will not be affected.

what else is going on with I-69 outside of Indiana? Indiana is spending big money to finish their stretch of the highway, but all the other states seem to be putting in marginal efforts.
