Jordan Route 15, near Aqaba. I have no idea what is though, it doesn't appear to be a toll station, nearby Route 65 also has a similar checkpoint north of Aqaba.

I assume it's a checkpoint for this region with special zone entry policy. See:

Quote:

Most nationalities can obtain tourist visas to Jordan upon arrival at any entry point, except at the King Hussein Bridge, which requires a pre-issued visa.

A single entry visa will cost JD20 or approximately US$30. Single entry visas are officially valid for one month from the date of entry, but you must register them at a main police station within one month of your arrival.

ASEZA has recently introduced a special Economic Zone visa for Aqaba, known as "ASEZ visa" for anyone just visiting Aqaba.

Anybody arriving in Aqaba, whether at the port, the airport or any border crossing can get a free visa. There is no obligation associated with this visa, providing you leave the country within 15 days. You do not need to register the visa for renewal.

Everybody without a specific exemption must pay the JD8 departure tax whenever they leave the country, whether they hold an ASEZ visa or not. Travelers staying less than 24 hours are considered to be "in transit" and are exempt from departure tax, as are certain cruise ship passengers.

It's the customs office at the point of entry from the duty-free Aqaba Special Economic Zone, into the duty-bound part of Jordan.

There are indeed two road crossings between the ASEZA zone and the rest of Jordan.

I'll try pop on to Street View, but for me, it will be like searching for a needle in a haystack...

You wont get very far on SV, SV there sucks balls. You can't see anything.

Even with cheating that was hard to find Good luck to everyone finding. Hint: very close to a major city affected by Sandy and it's not New York

Nice one! A very often used pic on newssites, but location very hard to find.

Think I found it. It actually wasn't too terrible -- I looked for dual carriageways in close proximity to the ocean with reasonably flat terrain, and Atlantic City was the only place. I happened to notice a stretch of US Route 30 with two hotels by chance, and put two and two together.

Heck, last I heard (around midnight), parts of I-90 in Cleveland were closed, due to flooding along Lake Erie caused by the winds. And keep an eye on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago.
