If I-90 were built with a separation within the toll barriers, something like that may have been possible. Maybe they'll do it when they widen it to 8 lanes in the coming years.

Our section of I-90 is quite green:

Even the trees in the middle make a big difference, but that overhead shot with the lid is just fantastic for a highway.

This is a visual of the entire I-30 corridor reconfiguration project in Arlington. Included in this visual presentation is the new mix master for the 30 and 360 interchange.

Some pictures taken during my recent trip to Colorado. Here is I-70 between exit 171 (Minturn) and 116 (Glenwood Springs), including stunning Glenwood Canyon:

You cannot see it, but the car in front of me is plated "EXAKTLY":






The beginning of Glenwood Canyon:







Roadworks in the canyon, too:

The Glenwood Canyon is amazing

By the way, you could zoom in a bit, or crop some of the dashboard away

El Paso, TX

A cloverleaf with a full directional interchange (stack) on top of it in El Paso, Texas. I-10 intersects with Loop 375 here.

I-95 widening in south Florida:


It looks like they are doing the last 2x2 stretches between Cape Canaveral and Miami.

Caltrans has been working on a full-scale replacement of the I-15/I-215 interchange in Devore at the bottom of Cajon Pass for a number of years. They have reversed the exit, so I-215 no longer exits from the left side of the freeway and have added truck by-pass lanes to I-15 in both the north and southbound directions:

Some before photos taken during construction in December, 2014




Almost complete photos taken last month:

I believe there are a couple of truck bypass routes at major interchanges in Southern California. They're rare in Europe, I'm aware of only one such interchange (Hattenbach interchange in Germany).

They're quite useful on major truck corridors, it prevents a long line of trucks having to move over a couple of lanes to the left to continue on I-15.

^ Yeah, truck lanes are pretty common in Southern California. Less so in other parts of the US though.

What about the Terbregseplein interchange at Rotterdam?

With SpaceX ramping up the launch rate, I suppose there will be more traffic to Cape Canaveral.
