21 lanes on the I-75/I-85 section in Atlanta.

Not all through lanes, but still impressive.

Exceptionally wide I-75 in Atlanta, with 2x8 lanes without parallel lanes!

Can someone post a pic from the ground of that 9 lane (one way) road in Buenos Aires?

Too bad that we dont have enough space to build motorways like that here in Europe. There must be plenty of motorways in the Netherlands and Germany that ought to be just as wide, and the same goes for the motorway south of Copenhagen.

Nah this motorway has a capacity of 350.000 AADT. That's not needed in Europe, however i agree some wider motorways are a must.

It's a bad picture but you can count 11 lanes with turning lanes in the bottom left corner. It's in Tallinn.
