r-g-b, please use the edit button. It takes up much less space than quadruple posting.

Yes, but they have more content than just ".............", or a single link.

Did you get the one near New Orleans (Louisiana) where I-310 intersects with US 61 (Airline Hwy)?

Chris... come on... you have too much time on ur hands it seems
Trying to make a list of full 4L staxx in US is like trying to make a list of roundabouts in our lame (infrastructurally speaking) EU. :P

Chris often makes much more unusual lists, like photos of signs of every village in the Netherlands.

Coming to this thread a little late (I was on vacation):

* Preparing a complete list of four-level stacks in the US is an eminently do-able task--I think the total number is between 50 and 60.

* In Louisiana, US 61 and I-310 doesn't qualify because it has opposite-facing DCs crossing in plan (i.e., is a stack/turban hybrid). A few examples cited for other states have this problem as well.

* My quick list of DFW stacks (13 in all):

I-30/I-820 (W)
I-30/I-820 (E)
I-20/SH 360
I-35E/PGBT
I-20/US 67
I-20/I-45
I-20/US 175
I-635/US 80
I-635/I-30
I-635/US 75 (the famous Dallas High Five)
US 75/PGBT
PGBT/DNT
I-20/I-35E

(PGBT = President George Bush Turnpike; DNT = Dallas North Tollway. These facilities are maintained and operated by the North Texas Tollway Authority rather than TxDOT, and so do not have state highway numbers as such.)

* Not all of Texas' stacks are in DFW and Houston. I count four in San Antonio (I-10/I-410 Crossroads, I-10/US 90/US 281, I-10/I-35/US 90, and I-37/I-410). I have a feeling Corpus Christi has a stack somewhere in its metropolitan area, but I can't see it. Counting DFW with 13, Houston with 10, and San Antonio with 4, Texas alone has at least 27 stacks. This is probably about half the total for the whole US.

* In addition to I-17/Loop 101 and US 60/Loop 202 (SuperRedTan Interchange), Arizona has I-10/I-17 (NW).

* Michigan actually has four stacks: I-69/I-475 (Flint), I-75/I-696, I-96/M-39, and I-94/I-96 (all Detroit). I-94/I-96 is an edge case since the ramps are pretzel-shaped, but opposite-facing DCs do not cross in plan and there are four levels, so it meets the definition of a stack.

* Florida has at least one stack--I-95/I-195 in Miami.

* Alabama has two stacks, both in Birmingham: I-20/I-459 and I-65/I-459.

Those are the ones I know about. I have been thumbtacking them in Google Earth as I go along, but there are stacks I haven't documented yet--for instance, I still haven't thumbtacked New York State's three stacks.

Nah, I know the U.S. Freeway system pretty well, so I know where to look. This list didn't take that much time. Besides that, I work 80% so I have the luxury of some additional spare time

Yes we already counted this one, by the way the pic looks a little bit dated or am I mistaken?

Actually there are 5 stacks in San Antonio. There's a new one in I-410 and US-281.
It was already open.

Many thanks--I had forgotten about I-410/US 281, and the Google Earth mapping I looked at last night didn't seem to have it. This stack provides a direct interchange between the two freeways where previously the connection could be made only by using the frontage roads.

Looks like this one is about to become a 5-way junction.

Yep, the new US 90 Crosby Freeway is going to shoot off to the northeast from here.

Been in the plans since the mid-60s. The interchange was designed specifically to have this addition take place.

There's nothing lame about Europe. The EU has much more to offer in terms of transportation infrastructure than the USA.
