Looks like that section of the A115 was rerouted after The Wall fell (perhaps back onto its original pre-WWII routing), as that abandoned grade hugs the 'free' side of the former Iron Curtain border to the north and northeast. The former border crossing was not far to the south.

By the way road was closed until 1995, but it was destroyed at 1997

Viaducts of Torunska Route are not finished in this place... this road was constructed in early 80s, time of economic crisis... so they tried to finish it quickly, actually the main route is missing These tow which are main today were mean to be service lanes for local traffic...

Torunska Route is part of future Warsaw Outer Ring

Washington Hwy 7...



Currently ends at E 38th St...



It was supposed to continue south, but I'm not sure how far (I haven't seen a map that shows where it was intended to end).

Acceso Sur in Santiago, Chile.

Most of the highway is enabled for transit but some sections are on hold, and they have been abandoned for a long time, as soon as problems with neighbors are solved the construction will resume, although the construction has been on hold for more than 10 years now.

This highway was supposed to be ready in 1993, as of 2008, 45km are already built, but there's still 6km that haven't been constructed because of problems with home owners that live in, or close (few centimeters away ) to the future highway. The partially built sections of the highway have been sitting empty for a looong time now.

Red path = finished.
Yello path = on hold.



yes, centimeters away from the abandoned construction site!

Those rail systems would have done us so much good if we had built them then.

Unused portion of I-189 south of Burlington, VT.

Apparently there are still plans to extend it to downtown Burlington.

Also, what's the current story on the A44 between the A46 and the A61 WRT that coal mine?

The A44 has been demolished so that coal mine can grow even bigger. I believe it's also planned to demolish the A61 and rebuild the A44 to handle the traffic flow. I can hardly believe this stuff is cost-efficient.

As for the A44 gaps;

The section near Mönchengladbach isn't planned
The section between Ratingen and Velbert is planned, but in early stages I believe
The section between Velbert and Bochum is also planned, and somewhat further in the planning stage
The section in Dortmund is currently build to autobahn, but that's the B1, and not the A44.
The section between Kassel and Eisenach is progressing extremely slow.
