US 48, Corridor H, West Virginia

A 5 mile segment of the Appalachian Development Highway System, Corridor H, also known as US 48, opened to traffic today in West Virginia.

It runs from the Tucker County line to Bismarck, around Mount Storm Lake. Although it is not a full standard freeway, it has one new interchange with WV-93.

The next phase in Tucker County, west to Davis, is planned to open in the fall.

US 183, Austin, TX

A $ 581 million design-build contract has been awarded yesterday to construct the 'Bergstrom Expressway', a new toll road, part of US 183 in eastern Austin. It will run from US 290 to SH 71 near Bergstrom Airport. The first phase will open to traffic in late 2019. The project will be completed by 2021.

US 74 Charlotte - Monroe, NC

NCDOT Begins Construction on Monroe Expressway

The N.C. Department of Transportation has started construction on the Monroe Expressway, a roughly 20-mile toll freeway that will provide an alternative for high-speed regional travel along the U.S. 74 corridor.

The new freeway will extend from U.S. 74 near I-485 in Mecklenburg County to U.S. 74 between the towns of Wingate and Marshville in Union County. The approximately $840 million project is expected to open to traffic in late 2018. The Monroe Expressway will use electronic tolling similar to the Triangle Expressway, which opened to traffic in December 2011.

Crews are now installing silt fencing, survey markers, right-of-way fencing and performing limited clearing and grubbing necessary for construction within the right-of-way. These activities are starting from the eastern limits of the project and working west.This work isn't expected to have major impacts on the traveling public.

NCDOT is currently working to finalize design plans for the Expressway and continuing to acquire right-of-way.

Has TX-130 attracted enough traffic after faltering after its opening?

Personally I think anywhere north of TX-71 the highway is well utilized. Going south to Seguin is another story. I'm speaking from experience as to where for people who live north, it's a great way to get to the airport and great alternate to hit US 290 or TX 71 to Houston. As for a bypass to San Antonio it's too long and too expensive. If you still want to take it to San Antonio it would only make sense if you're going anywhere central or south San Antonio. If you're going anywhere in the north of San Antonio it only makes sense to use IH 35.

State Route 79, Fall River, MA

The elevated segment of State Route 79 in Fall River, Massachusetts has been demolished. It won't be replaced. It was in very poor condition and traffic volumes weren't high enough to warrant a replacement (25,000 vehicles per day). It will become an urban boulevard. With such traffic volumes it won't exactly be an idyllic boulevard, but it can handle such volumes on four lanes.

Could you please post separate pictures of that?

I would like to be able to examine it in more detail. I have family in the area.

Yes, that's not uncommon for a four-lane arterial. It will likely be uncongested (also depending on the timing of the traffic signals), but it won't be a quiet street either, with a continuous flow of traffic.

They have some strange traffic solutions in Utah. Just build roundabouts and learn from europé. We have multiple roundabouts exit and entering the interstates. Traffic lights are stone age nowadays. Sweden takes them down and builds roundabouts and Germany is starting to do the same

roundabout can't handle high traffic volumes, especially if mostly in one direction only

they can if they're designed more adaptively, A michigan's left can be widened a little and it can become an oval roundabout yielding traffic going in one direction, while providing more safety for the traffic making U and left turns
Example from Turkey
