I'm happy of seeing they'll reconstruct that interchange. Also it would be great if they reconstruct the 59 highway (the one that goes from right to left) cuz it looks pretty bad right now. I don't know if that part of the I-610 was rebuilt recently but it looks good.

I assume - 610 being a beltway - there are actually two 69/610 junctions. Is this the one on the southwest side of town or the northeast?

Actually no! It's highway 59 haha, closest beltway is beltway 8 which crosses to the south before Sugar Land, but the 59 highway isn't a beltway. It goes from the southwest to downtown straight ahead.

I think you misunderstood me: I-610 is a beltway. Therefore I-69 crosses it twice, just like 10 and 45 do. Or it does if they've marked it all the way.

I think there's confusion going on here. US-59 = I-69.

Uptown Houston, that means it's the southwest side

There were also recently plans brought forward to construct an elevated structure over the West Loop from 10 to 59/69. This section of freeway usually ranks in the top 5 most congested roadways in Texas. It carries 307,000 vehicles per day on only eight mainline lanes.

I'm not sure how an elevated structure would tie into this interchange. It may be a 7th level on top of 610.

A huge blizzard has shut a 300 mile segment of I-70 down, all the way from Denver to Hays, Kansas.

Will the reconstruction of IH69 and IH610 include a full interchange with Westpark Tollway?

Raleigh, North Carolina

NCDOT Identifies Recommended Complete 540 Preferred Alternative

The NC Department of Transportation will recommend “Detailed Study Alternative 2” as the preferred alternative for the Complete 540 project to federal and state agency officials later this month.

NCDOT has recommended the orange, green and mint segments because they:

* Are formally supported by all local governments;
* Minimize the number of relocations of homes and businesses, compared to other alternatives;
* Avoid impacts to the Swift Creek Watershed critical area (a source for Raleigh’s drinking water);
* Avoid the Clemmons Educational State Forest;
* Avoid impacts to historic resources; and
* Minimally affect only one local park.

Complete 540 will extend the Triangle Expressway from the N.C. 55 Bypass in Apex to the U.S. 64/U.S. 264 Bypass in Knightdale, completing the 540 Outer Loop around the greater Raleigh area. This will link the towns of Apex, Cary, Clayton, Garner, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs and Raleigh. By better connecting these towns and cities, the project is anticipated to ease existing and future **congestion on area roads, including Interstate 440, I-40, N.C. 42, N.C. 55 and Ten Ten Road.
Full press release: https://apps.ncdot.gov/newsreleases/...s.aspx?r=12208

The recommended alternative:

A new 'avalanche bridge' for I-90 east of Snoqualmie Pass, Washington. It's part of a project to widen I-90 to six lanes.

SR-9B / Future I-796, Jacksonville, FL

Google Earth has new imagery dated 11/12/2015 of the State Road 9B / Future I-795 extension in southeastern Jacksonville. The extension is only about two miles long and looks practically completed. The official project site states an opening in summer 2016.

Three satellite images (the last two are not north-oriented).


SR-9B / I-95 interchange:

A Google Earth measurement suggests the bridge is approximately 420 ft / 125 m wide.

Which makes it wider than some other 'widest in the world' bridges, but it's not one single structure.
