The Marquette Interchange in Milwaukee is pretty insane. It is currently undergoing a 4-year, $810 million reconstruction project, scheduled to end in 2008

Dallas hi 5 is bigger than that. At the moment it would be the dallas hi 5 or the 110/105.

What about the springfield interchange? any pics of that?

There is also the East LA Interchange (the 5, 101, 10, and the 60 freeways meet)



The Orange Crush (the 5, 22, and 57 freeways meet)


El Toro Y (the 405 and 55 freeways meet)


^ The El Toro Y is 26 (!) lanes across.

I don't have any live photos. Never thought of taking pictures of a highway interchange.

It'd be fun if they increase the banking angle of the loop until it's 45 degrees. Then have people barrel down the thing at 80 mph, like in Nascar.

who else hates driving on those things...especially during rush hour. and if a car breaks down on one, forget it, you're ****ed becuase they typically are only one lane wide with a negligable shoulder.
