Good looking highways, too bad the tolls are ridiculously high. What Mexico needs to invest in is true inner city highways rather then a motorway turning into an avenue once entering city limits. The only Mexican City which truly has an excellent inner highway network is Queretaro and perhaps San Luis Potosi.

The Queretaro's geographic location is very estrategic.

The highway to Northern of Mexico and the highway to Western of Mexico (Specially to the region of Bajío) are passed through Queretaro City.

There appears to be direct right-turn access to intersecting roads and even abutting properties, but no opportunity to make direct left turns onto or of of the road. Motorists have to drive until they reach an interchange or an overpass, then turn around.

It's late here how, but tomorrow I'll post a Google Earth screenshot that, well, you'll see.
OK, here it is. IIRC this is on Hwy 57, prolly north of San Luis. This highway crossing bridge ended up in someone's back yard:

Is that the freeroad? It probably runs paralell to the toll road which would be Highway 57D.

Hello, Mexicans!

I have a short question. How do you guys call a motorway by it's number?

Like "A15" or more like "Mexican Highway 15", or "carretera de [insert city name] a [insert city name]?

Like in Europe, we say "A4" or "S4" or "D4", or "E4". Some countries only mention the name of the motorway "Hemus" for instance in Bulgaria. How's that in Mexico?

Yes, it is, though I somehow didn't notice 57D before, prolly because 57D ends in a trumpet with 57 as the priority route. And I was looking in Google Earth-- no route numbers.

I've still seen the same type of thing throughout Mexico, though this overpass is by far the most interesting.

Here's the Google Maps link: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...&t=h&z=17&om=0

Scrolling southward on 57D I found this: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...&t=h&z=16&om=0 . It appears that traffic from the truck terminal is allowed to make left turns across the median!

Hi Chriszwolle.

Well, the mexican highways are numbered for example:

The Mexico - Queretaro highway is the number 57-D.

The letter D means you are in the highway.

The federal road has a simple number firstly México then the number. For example the road between Matamoros to Cancún is the number 180. This road is almost parallel to Gulf of Mexico

The road 200 is parallel to the Pacific Ocean, beggins in Tepic and finishes in Tapachula, nearly the border line with Guatemala.

The road 1 stars in Tijuana and finishes in Los Cabos, is the most important road in Baja Peninsula.

The road 2 is almost parallel to US - Mexico border line.

The principal highways of Mexico City are:

The Mexico - Queretaro highway (57D)
The Mexico - Puebla - Veracruz highway (150D)
The Mexico - Cuernavaca - Acapulco (95D)
The Mexico - Pachuca (85D)
And The Mexico - Toluca - Guadalajara highway (15D)

And I forgot something:

The Panamerican Road in Mexico is numbered 190.

Beggings in Chiapas and ends in Juarez City, Chihuahua.

Is one of the most important roads in all Mexico.

It doesn't seem a very logical road numbering system to me. Not really a grid nor a radiating one.

A brief introduction to Mexican Highways

Here's my contribution to answer your question, as well as enrichening Nikkodemo's explanation.

Most Mexican highways, at least the national highway system, have a number designation. For example, MEXICO15 refers to the Mexico City-Nogales Hwy, MEX190 refers to the Mexico City-Cd. Cuauhtémoc Hwy (Panamerican Hwy bound to Guatemala). There are also roads maintained by each mexican state, but many of them remain unnumbered or it is barely known even by local authorities. For example: MEX5 belongs to the State of Mexico and goes from Tlalnepantla to El Oro.

On the other side, there is a "free" network and a "toll" network. The "free" (libre) network comprises 7m wide, 2 lane roads, maintained by federal or state authorities; some of them even have dual carriageway or even expressway standards (such as the MEXICO57 Hwy in the state of Queretaro).
The "toll" (cuota in Mexican Spanish; other countries use the word peaje) network comprises all the controled access highways, either 4-lane autopistas, or 2-lane supercarreteras (which are actually "super 2" controlled access roads). Such roads are identified by adding the suffix "D" to distinguish them from their free counterparts (by the way, the "D" stands for directo as in direct road).

Formally speaking the country uses a grid system in which north-south roads are odd and east-west roads are odd. Lower numbers are west and north of the country; higher numbers are located south and east of the country. However, given the shape of Mexico, there are particular situations in which the road system resembles more of a radial numbering. For instance, highway 15 follows an east-west path between Mexico City and Tepic, then turns north. Highway 85 starts in Nuevo Laredo goes all the way to Mexico City, follows Insurgentes Ave., and turns into Highway 95 all the way to Acapulco. And Hwy 54 between Reynosa and Colima follows a north-south path, despite being assinged an even number.

In normal speech, highways are commonly refered by the control cities (examples: Autopista México-Querétaro, la México-Pachuca), although the highway number is stated in signals. In some cases, some highways have names, and have entered common speech (examples: the Mexico-Cuernavaca-Acapulco expressway (95D) is nicknamed Autopista del Sol; the Mexico City-Guadalajara expressway (15D) is called Autopista de Occidente, and many cities which are part of the Panamerican Hwy bear that name instead of using the official designations MEXICO85 and MEXICO190: Carretera Panamericana).

Probably later this week I can upload some examples of signs that can enrich this explanation. Saludos desde México.
