Someone else can explain where the Mason-Dixon Line is*.... I have to leave for "work". :-P

*Although I'm one of the people on the forum who's closest to it.

As far as I remember, it's the traditional division line between North and South. It basically forms the southern border of Pennsylvania, right?

Strictly speaking, Mason and Dixon surveyed the boundary between Pennsylvania and Maryland, because their charters were inconsistent with each other. (If you read the Maryland charter broadly enough, Philadelphia's in Maryland...)

During pre-Civil War times, when Maryland was a slave state and Pennsylvania wasn't, the Mason-Dixon Line came to mean the entire boundary between slave and free states, thus between North and South.... Also, some people use the latitude of the Pennsylvania-Maryland border as the Mason-Dixon Line and describe places like Cape May (New Jersey) or Cincinnati (Ohio) as being below the Mason-Dixon Line even though they're in northern states.

By the way, Delaware was sort of part of Pennsylvania at the time of the survey, so the actual Mason-Dixon survey started out by surveying the Maryland/Delaware border. So you can legitimately describe Delaware as "above the Mason-Dixon Line" even though most of it's below the latitude of the Maryland/Pennsylvania border and it was a slave state.... Could even be a trick question. But Brewerfan's picture looks fairly Midwestern (or maybe western New York) to me....

EDIT: But I made that remark because Georgia's far south of it by any definition.

Thanks for the history repetition, Penn's Woods! I remembered it when you got the snowball rolling. Yet another incentive to dive into US history again, I guess...

Yes its in the Midwest and I was using the everyday casual definition of "Mason-Dixon Line" i.e. non slave states/ fought on the Union side of the Civil War.

Which, taken in conjunction with the states you've already said it isn't, leaves:

Illinois
Indiana
Iowa
Michigan
Ohio

Unless I'm missing anything.

Got it.

But since I don't feel like finding something, I'll just give another hint: there are three Interstates in that picture.

French A10 at Palaiseau (a suburb of Paris). That is quite a weird situation, I'm not sure how they originally planned to route A10 in southern metro Paris.

Which interchange is this?
