I-75 Miramar, FL

The express lanes under construction on I-75 in Miramar, a western suburb of Miami. They are building a network of express lanes in the western suburbs of Miami.

Those two posts give me several thoughts.

- Atlanta looks great with all those trees! Maybe it's not that bad as I thought it was.
- Damn, Miramar will probably be giant mosquito nest. Let's never go there.

Haha, less hot though. Plus, they make sure water keeps flowing (also for smell and controlling the levels), so I guess it's probably worst there in Florida. But yeah, I'm currently speckled too.

Well Atlanta's nickname is, "the city in a forest" after all..

Most Eastern, Southern, and Midwestern U.S. cities have a vast canopy when viewed from overhead.

They put those man made lakes and ponds in for aesthetic purposes. I doubt they smell if they were built on purpose. Don't be an idiot

The water is artificial, but its not for aesthetics-the idea is to try to drain the surrounding land-remember that all of Miami was built in the Everglades swamps.

Interstate 580, Carson City, Nevada

The 4 mile I-580 extension around Carson City will open to traffic on Wednesday.
The Nevada Department of Transportation is scheduled to open the last leg of the Interstate 580 Carson City Freeway to traffic beginning August 2.

Beginning as early as 10 a.m. August 2, access from the southern end of the freeway will be open and drivers will be able to travel the southern three miles of freeway which has been under construction since June 2015. As part of a phased opening, the new freeway ramps between Fairview Drive at the northern end of the new Carson City Freeway will open later that afternoon or on August 3.

Hartford has one of the most interesting freeway systems in the U.S. Especially due to the number of partially / unbuilt freeways.

^ Yeah, definitely agree. I have driven through Hartford a couple of times over the years, and I very much enjoy it every time. Connecticut in general is a really interesting place from a highways perspective. Few states embraced the interstate era with as much enthusiasm as Connecticut.

Hartford is home to that famous 4 level stack which only has 50% of its ramps in use.

I-84 west of Hartford is interesting mostly because of all of the left exit interchanges that are bigger than they should be due to the highway cancellations.

We're known as the City in a Forest for a reason. =) You should really come and check it out!

Technically this is I-40 west of Albuquerque; the original Route 66 is still extant in many places in this area, but as a little two-lane road that provides access to some ranches.

I-422, Birmingham Northern Beltline

ALDOT says Northern Beltline construction stopped until 2019


We're learning the rest of the Northern Beltline is on hold until the state can get more funding.

The first project started in 2014 and is complete but the second project will not start until funds become available. ALDOT hopes that is at least in 2019.

The first project included 1-point-34 miles of grading and drainage from Highway 79 to 75.

The second project, consisting of bridges over Self Creek, is tentatively scheduled for some time in 2019.

ALDOT hopes to complete the project in the year of 2054 but that all depends on funding and if they can stay on schedule.
Full report: http://www.wbrc.com/story/36135333/a...ped-until-2019



In my opinion this is a pointless project to pursue without a source of funding. If they can't come up with the funds to build a 1.3 mile segment over a period of some 6-7 years, how are they going to fund a 50+ mile freeway?

The fact that they're hoping to complete the project in 2054 if they can stay on schedule says enough...

And not to mention there is quite some debate about the purpose and need of the Birmingham Northern Beltline. They hope it will spur the same growth that occurred when I-459 was built along the south side of Birmingham, but whether that will materialize can be described as 'guesswork' or 'wishful thinking'.
