I think the largest interchange in the southern hemisphere is the Gral Paz and Panamerican Highway interchange in Buenos Aires

It's the junction of these 2 highways:




which gives us this interchange:

Miami



I thought I would throw a shot of Miami's larger interchange up...not sure how tall it is or if it comes
close to some of those others like the one in Dallas, but that bus looks like it's up pretty high.





Also this is the I595/95 Exchange in Ft. Lauderdale



Also the following some shots of the knot...

Nice to see India now having a new highway which meets international standard.

This are the best freeways I've drived in Mexico:

The 95 (México-Cuernavaca)


And the 91 (México-Toluca)


But, I'm a bit confused. What¡s the difference betwwen a freeway and a highway?

Typical Chinese highway...
The most beautiful Chinese highway should be in Guangdong and Shanghai

I-95 in northern Dade County (Miami) is similar to this. I think the design combining a pair of concrete Jersey barricades filled with dirt and used as a planter for hedges, shrubs, etc. is one of the best overall ways to make freeways look nice in situations where there isn't enough space for a wide median. It achieves the safety goal via the concrete barriers, and the hedge blocks motorists' view of the other side (so people won't slow down and cause a traffic jam to look at an accident that happened on the other side).


Here's a poor picture of it, though you can't really see the middle very well:

Pretty ugly highway overall, but I really like the part of the I-95 somewhere in the middle between Ft. Lauderdale and Miami where you get the super express lane that goes up one lane into a 15 story tall bridge and just flies over everything... that part is pretty fun to drive on.
