I-77 Charlotte, NC

I-77 Express Lanes Project Moves Forward

The North Carolina Department of Transportation is moving forward with the I-77 Express Lanes project, following a Superior Court judge’s ruling in Alamance County that it can continue.

An advocacy group filed a lawsuit trying to stop the project which is designed to bring much needed, immediate and long-term relief on one of the most congested roadways in the state by providing drivers with a choice for a more reliable travel time. Through a public-private partnership between NCDOT and I-77 Mobility Partners (Cintra US), I-77 Mobility Partners will construct the lanes along a 26 mile stretch of I-77 from Brookshire Freeway (Exit 11) in Charlotte to N.C. 150 (Exit 36) in Iredell County, with the state paying a fraction of the overall cost.

Why Alamance County, I wonder - it's nowhere near I-77....

The Weather Channel actually had a reporter and camera crew on the High Five the other day, reporting from it as about one car a minute would try to negotiate it extremely carefully....

Loop 202, Phoenix, AZ

South Mountain Freeway gains final federal approval

Record of Decision signed for long-proposed new freeway

The Valley’s Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway, proposed by regional planners since the 1980s, has received final approval from the Federal Highway Administration, paving the way for the Arizona Department of Transportation to move the project forward.

The Record of Decision, signed March 5 by the Federal Highway Administration, grants the final approval necessary for ADOT to begin the process of acquiring right of way, complete the design and begin construction of the 22-mile-long freeway to serve the metro Phoenix region.

The South Mountain Freeway is the last piece to complete the Loop 202 and Loop 101 freeway system necessary for high-quality regional mobility, according to regional planners.

Why haven't the loops in Phoenix become interstate highways? Are they just not up to interstate standards?

For some odd reason, Arizona has no three-digit interstates.

They are up to interstate standards, but not every road that meets the standards has to be given the blue and red shields.

It did have one once, but they extended I-17 over I-410 in Phoenix.

AZ DOT just doesn't seem to like 3dis.

it is because we pay for those roads here in the state, they are up to interstate standard, but if we give them the blue shield the Feds will have to pay for it.

and the loops in Phoenix are financed by out taxes in Maricopa County

So, why did it need the Federal Highway Administration approval?
Are you sure there is no money from the feds involved?

I-30 / SH 360 interchange, Arlington, TX

TxDOT Approves Funding for the I-30/SH 360 Interchange

As part of the allocation of Proposition 1 funds, the Texas Transportation Commission has approved $254 million for the new direct connect Interstate 30/SH 360 interchange project. This was after much public involvement and recommendation by the North Central Texas Council of Governments’ Regional Transportation Council in collaboration with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). This fall, TxDOT will award the project to a contractor with construction kicking off soon after.

The project will provide a fully directional interchange at I-30 and SH 360 and will include the reconstruction and widening of the Six Flags Drive bridge over I-30 from two lanes to five lanes (three southbound lanes and two northbound lanes). The bridge will improve access to Six Flags Over Texas and the greater commercial area by extending Six Flags Drive north to Avenue H.
Full press release: http://www.txdot.gov/inside-txdot/me.../009-2015.html

Current interchange. It will be a full stack interchange.
