Haha... when I was up Northeast, whenever the blue food advisories came up with the Friendly's logo, I kept thinking it was Chick-Fil-A... all that did was make me miss being at home more!

Yeah, great pics, FM2258...nice to see some from my neck of the woods.

I-91 is a pretty good stretch of road, possibly the best in CT (with I-84 east of Hartford being second).

North American Super Highway

I heard some of a North American Super Highway that would start in Mexico extend through America, and go into Canada. Does anyone know anything about this?

I don't know about this but what is a Super Highway? I keep hearing the term and have seen the term for Interstates but when the speed limit is 70 just like a rural Farm Road, it doesn't seem so super to me.

Gotta love those West Texas RM roads that have a speed limit of 75 mph (120 km/h).

I believe you might be referring to a proposal for a massive new transportation corridor roughly following I-35 that would incorporate rail lines and truck carrigeways, primarily as a way to facilitate the movement of huge amounts of goods between Mexico and the central US, where intermodal freight terminals would be set up around St Louis or KC or something.

They are so fun to drive on. Rural Farm Roads and Ranch Roads are one of the best ways to see Texas.

Wouldn't this "Super Highway" simply exploit already existing stretches of highways in these countries thus being a newly named international road corridor?

I guess, my question is, are they building it or was it canceled?

I can see why they think this would be a good idea..




Is this an accurate representation of freight traffic in the US? It looks very centralised, almost like Texas is a heart with arteries spreading out from it.. Or is it a "Texas-centered" view of things?

maybe there is a super-port near there. I heard that the high way would be connected to a super-port

That map looks like a Texas point of view.

Sounds very silly. Canada's already enough of a resource based country.
