I've been looking all over Hong Kong with Google Earth and haven't been able to find it yet.

Here it is, on the airport road:

I found mgk920's, too-- it's I-35 in Duluth, Minnesota:

But I'm not ready to post. Doesn't that drive you up the wall?

Edit: NVM, here's one:

I may be very wrong, but I have a sneaky feeling that this may be somewhere in Johannesburg or Pretoria...

Nope-- it's in the northern and western hemispheres.

Oh, OK - at first glance, it looked like it was somewhere where people drive on the left, and the image copyrights are the same as what they are for South African images. Looks like they actually do drive on the right in that image when you look at it more closely.

Now I have no clue where this may be.

Mexico City's interchanges looks much more sophisticated, with flyovers.

Looks like somewhere in northern Mexico.

Monterrey, NL?

Oh yea, correct on mine. I was hoping for a few SWAGs from the Europeans and Asians in the crowd first, though.

Yes, it's on the north side of Monterrey: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=2...09785&t=k&z=16

Maybe I shouldn't cave without a specific location, but this one was just too hard. I couldn't even think of any decent clues, and my last submission was a debacle.

I posted about this on mtr a few months ago-- perhaps you saw it...

Yeah, now they know how we Americans feel.

Just kidding, of course. I think this thread has been reasonably well balanced geographically. That's part of why it's such fun. And I guessed one in Europe and two in Asia.

Oh, I wasn't even gonna guess, but since you're from Wisconsin it occurred to me that yours might be in Duluth. I wouldn't have expected to find a buried waterfront freeway there, that's for sure.

Downtown Duluth, MN is built on a fairly steep hillside. The city's downtown main street (Superior St) is several floor levels above the Lake Superior water level and that part of I-35 at the northeast corner of that image where it dips northwest of that main street between those two tunnels (there are a total of four tunnels on I-35 there) is significantly below street level.

I always try to show as much different countries as possible. An all-European contest wouldn't be attractive to Americans or Asians, nor an all-Mexican would be attractive for Europeans.

I already have noticed this subforum has a European majority, so i hope it will keep balanced in the future

I didn't really mean to post only Mexican highways. Those photos were ones I'd saved from when I first discovered Google Earth, and when my time came to post, why surf up something else when I already had those?

Anyway, there were three. I've posted two in this thread and one in the Mexican highways thread, so they're all gone now. I promise that the next time I post here it won't be anything from Mexico.
