Is I-90 continious without having to take exits?

I think it should work from Chicago to Seattle.

Allright, well, I'll bring my van over to New York and I'll start driving. Will let you know the outcome....

Be careful east of Tomah, you could end up on the I-94...

Boston, not New York, if you want to get the entirety of I-90. Starts right at Logan Airport, conveniently.

We need Chris for an authoritative answer. I-80 may work from about Portage, Indiana, to San Francisco, which would be longer....

No, you need to start at the I-295 in Chicago (where you exit onto I-80), then need to follow I-280 (not I-80) around Davenport but you 'get stuck' following I-80 at Des Moines, where on the westside of the city you need to exit to follow I-80
From Chicago to there is 300-350 miles.
Then you have 474 miles ontil you need to exit near the Nebraska-Colorado border. You get 1161 miles if you follow I-76 (and I-70), you end up 'stranded' at I-15 where you have to exit northbound or southbound.
Back to I-80. After that split it's 578 miles to Salt Lake City, where you have to merge onto I-15.


A good one which was prettysurprising, was Salt Lake City to San Diego (I-5 Mexican border) via Sacramento with 1165 miles

I thought of I-15 at Salt Lake as soon as I'd hit send on my I-80 post. Obviously, I'm not thinking these things through.

And Verso's going to yell at us any minute now for being off-topic, anyway.

I yell for him: WE ARE OFF-TOPIC. This is for the no-speed-limited German motorways (Autobahnen).

I'm going to open a new thread for this, in order to keep this one confined to West Germany.

All in all still a major improvement.

I think so. The entire 9.1km section will be completed in late 2015. The first 2x3 easternmost subsection will get in service in late November 2014, the westermost in December. The A8 section with the Pfinztal viaduct and the Klosterweg viaduct will remain 2x2 for now.

Yes, it is.

I have a question: when Germany was reunified in 1990, were all former DDR fleet given permanent exemption for the more advanced safety and pollution regulations that applied to West Germany fleet? Did the government put up some scheme to help East German businesses and government entities replace very unsafe/polluting trucks and vans with more modern ones?

Probably. Not really the right thread to discuss this though...
