Or you point is that since the highest point of Struma is close above 900 m altitude, then the limit is around 800-900?

Depends on latitude, local climate patterns etc.

In US, I-70 go as high as 3.370m.

I think it depends more on latitude than on altitude.

San Bernardino isn't a motorway. Is Brennerpass (1375m) the highest motorway in Europe?

Well, I could go on the Belgian thread, and propose that Ethiopia will take over the road management. One or two Belgians might be drifting back then...

Propose that Flanders take over the roads for the whole country. (But the Walloons and Bruxellois should pay them for it.) That'll do it....

I'll copy and paste

Don't forget Belgium's freeways are visible from space at night (or used to be), thanks to the lights....
