I-278 Goethals Bridge, New York

The Goethals Bridge second span seems to make good progress.

The meeting of the Route Numbering Committee a couple of weeks ago has approved the removal of I-895 in New York (a pathetically short one-way interstate at JFK) as well as the addition of I-57 along US67 between I-40 and US412 in Arkansas.

The "patetically short one-way interstate at JFK" is I-878, not I-895 which is (was) the Sheridan expressway in the Bronx. There's also a 72 mile I-165 in Kentucky, longer than some 2dis. It will run along the Natcher Parkway.

Anyway, the I-895 removal has made me to rewrite some of my plans. These will eventually cover all of the USA and include several running gags on AARoads, like an 85 mph section West of Washington DC (however not as I-366 but as part of I-666 ), an interstate to Alanland (which is also not included), and a new expressway in Chicago named the Hypotenuse using mostly railroad ROWs.

I-35W, Fort Worth, Texas

An aerial update video of the massive North Tarrant Express project on I-35W in Fort Worth.

The expansion is unbelievable, from four lanes to something four times as wide. The I-35W / I-820 interchange is simply mind-boggling, I wonder if it is the interchange with the most direct connectors in the world. There are 10 90 degree flyovers in this phase, a full build-out could mean 16 direct connectors if they ever build express lanes on I-820 west of I-35W.

Am I the only one amazed at the amount of bridge construction in NYC right now? There are 4 major bridge projects underway. It's going to make a huge difference the the appearance of the city - a lot of these old crumbling substandard bridges will be replaced by modern, high standard ones. Now they just need to deal with their airports, and get Amtrak Gateway going.

I-25, Colorado

Regional media report that $ 350 million in funding has been identified to expand I-25 between Monument and Castle Rock to six lanes. It is the final section of I-25 between Colorado Springs and Denver to be widened to six lanes. Construction could start by summer 2019.

I know, I just made the mistake of flying La Guardia

The bridge construction looks interesting but I'm not sure if the appearance will change much... Brooklyn & Manhattan Bridges, the George Washington, etc will probably remain much more imposing and aesthetically interesting

NYC interstates have a certain vibe that I just love! They may not be up to current interstate standards, but they more than make up for it in sheer beauty and joy of driving (when it's not at standstill).

Thanks for the pic, I was just there on I87 in June. The ramp from I-95E just off the GW to I-87 N is a cool ride, especially if you have a car that handles well.

I-64 Chesapeake, Virginia

CONTRACT AWARDED TO BUILD NEW HIGH RISE BRIDGE
Project will also widen 8 miles of I-64 in Chesapeake


The Commonwealth Transportation Board awarded a $409.6 million contract Tuesday to Granite/Parsons/Corman, Joint Venture of Tarrytown, NY, to widen about 8 miles of Interstate 64 and construct a new High Rise Bridge adjacent to the existing span in the Hampton Roads District. The award is the largest design-build contract in Virginia Department of Transportation history.

The project will widen I-64 from four to six lanes beginning half a mile east of the Interstate 264 interchange at Bowers Hill to one mile east of the Interstate 464 interchange. The widening will add one High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lane in each direction to the existing two general purpose lanes.

The new fixed-span High Rise Bridge will be built just south of the existing High Rise Bridge to carry the three lanes of I-64 west traffic over the Elizabeth River. The new bridge will provide 100-foot vertical clearance over the river. The existing High Rise Bridge will continue to operate and will carry three lanes of I-64 east traffic upon completion of the project.

The project is expected to be complete in summer 2021. It is designed to accommodate a future Phase 2 project, which will expand the corridor to a total of eight lanes and replace the existing High Rise Bridge.

important project, PM traffic on this bridge is terrible.
Not long ago I spent 45 minutes at a dead stop to cross... someone had crashed and blocked both lanes

I-35/80/235, Des Moines, Iowa

The proposed plan for the eastern I-35 / I-80 / I-235 interchanges in Des Moines. They will build a direct ramp for traffic following I-35 north. This is presently a left exit.



It will be the second reconstruction of the interchange. It was already reconstructed around 2007.

The original interchange layout:

I-35 / US 30 Ames, Iowa

I came across another Iowa project, the construction of a direct connector at the I-35 / US 30 cloverleaf near Ames.

That is a mind-boggling project. $ 8.1 billion!

The new plan, called 'Capital Express' is to add four express lanes to I-35 throughout the metro area, from Round Rock to south of Austin (33 miles). As there is no space for 12 lanes + frontage roads near Downtown Austin, they plan a triple-deck, below grade freeway, with the frontage roads cantilevered on top of eight main lanes, with four toll lanes even below that.
