Prognosis USA vs China for 2030

Created in a moment of absolute boredom but worthwhile looking at...
Also posted this on the China thread...

FYI:
The horizontal axis is time in years, the vertical is km of expressways/freeways/motorways.

Still it's only a chart interpolation, isn't it? China will not be building new roads forever.

Prediction

Officials already predicted that China will have at least 100000 km in 2020.

The data on the chart until 2009 is real, and the average building speed (5500km/year) is just extrapolated...

US 41 (Green Bay, WI area) pending upgrades flyover video

(This was originally posted in the Green Bay, WI Development News section of the North America/United States/Midwest and Plains forvm.) WisDOT just posted a very interesting video of a simulated flyover of the pending upgrades to US 41 in the Green Bay, WI area. It runs from south to north through the entire metro area. BTW, Lambeau Field is just off of the image to the right as it is passing from about Cormier Rd to about Lombardi Ave.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xi9dXDM4YCE

Actual work on this is expected to begin within the next 1-2 years.

Enjoy!



Mike

I'm guessing that old bridge was destroyed by a hurricane?

As far as I know the old 7 mile bridge largely intact and open for fishermen and i guess cyclists as well. but it breaks in 2 places, so I am not sure how you can get across it. though it is the only possible way to get to Pigeon Key so it is still used as of today.

Route 36 Highlands Bridge

Route 36 Highlands Bridge

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) will replace the Route 36 Highlands Bridge, which connects Sea Bright, Gateway National Recreational Area and Highlands in Monmouth County. NJDOT will replace the bridge, which is part of the emergency evacuation route from Sea Bright and Sandy Hook onto Route 36 in the Highlands, from spring 2008 to spring 2011.



The existing bridge, features 11-foot lanes and movable spans and lacks shoulders. It is functionally obsolete and structurally deficient. The bridge's deficiency creates extensive delays and congestion, particularly during the summer months, when the beach lots are filled in Sea Bright and on Sandy Hook, and the bridge opens twice an hour for maritime traffic on the Shrewsbury River.

NJDOT will demolish the bridge and replace it with a 65-foot high fixed span structure with 12-foot lanes and 8-foot shoulders. NJDOT will construct the bridge in a manner that maintains existing traffic flow and minimizes seasonal impacts and diversion of traffic to local streets.

NJDOT has held discussions with local officials and residents regarding the bridge replacement project since 2001. NJDOT has incorporated many of the communities' recommended improvements into the project.

It only took them 30 years but they finally made Briley Parkway great. It looks up to Interstate standards...I wonder if TDOT will try and make it the northern half of I-440.

Exiting the Harriman State Park Traffic circle & entering The Long Mountain Parkway / US 6



Heading WB on LMP / US 6







The Parkway climbs to over a 1000 ft in 1 mile







It was surprising empty that day





Crossing a Lake on the Parkway





The Parkway ended ....

On the descent down the mountain on US 6 WB

I took these photos from a Lookout Parking lot on the Descent down , the following pictures are of the Central Valley Region of Upstate New York

Looking Northwest , that highway is the New York Thurway (Toll)









Looking Southwest towards the Woodberry Commons Outlet Shopping Centre


The Rock cut out of US 6



Its 3 lanes total , 2 lanes up hill and 1 downhill, it needs to be wider



A sign giving warning to the Interchange at the bottom of the Mountain



The Final Curve at the bottom



Crossing the Thurway @ the Main Toll Plaza and the Route 17 / 32 / US 6 Interchange



There upgrading it to Have Express EZ-pass Lanes

With all due respect, that is not SR 520 in Washington. SR 520 is an east-west route so this view would have to be from a north-south route. Not to nit-pik, but I would guess this view of Mt. Rainier is from either SR 162 or 167.

UNLESS, it is a telephoto shot looking south from 520. Possible, indeed. Notice the airliner making its descent into into Sea-Tac.
