Having lived close to a "Gaylord Street" I'm also done with unusual road names, some names just didn't age well.

The parkways in the NYC Tri-State area are some of the more scenic urban/suburban roads in the country, maybe the world.

It seems standard design for a U.S. freeway. Left shoulders are more common in North America than Europe. There is often a full 12 foot left shoulder if there are 3/4+ lanes in each direction. Sometimes the left shoulder is consumed by a cheap widening or HOV lane implementation.

SR 99 Viaduct replacement

With Bertha being disassembled and infrastructure work within the tunnel kicking into high gear, many in the city are looking forward in anticipation to the removal of the ancient relic which is the Alaskan Way viaduct (1953), and to the long-awaited redevelopment of the Seattle waterfront. Here's an update from WSDOT. The online open house gives a lot of information about what's to come in the coming months and (two-three) years.

Fixed . This therefore could also go in the other thread.

MN-24 Clearwater Bridge

The new bridge across the Mississippi River in Clearwater, Minnesota was inaugurated today. It is said to be the longest bridge across the Mississippi north of the Twin Cities. It is part of Minnesota Highway 24. The old bridge will be demolished next summer.

CA-58 Westside Parkway, Bakersfield

Right-of-way acquisition of the Westside Parkway in Bakersfield has been advanced significantly. Interesting that they still build such urban freeways in California.

I can think of 3 in the US right now - Bakersfield, Spokane, and Lafayette. Bakersfield is the most extreme though I believe.

My mind is TOTALLY blow that California of all places would allow a project like that. Don't get me wrong. I support these sort of projects and can think of a half dozen places that similar projects are desperately needed but can't advance because of NIMBYs. I'm just amazed that one actually made it through!

Introducing the Golden Standard of the worst signs ever as approved by AARoads . The sign is located along northbound US 69 at the Mayes/Craig county line (Where else?).

That is very obviously a speeding trap.

What do you bet that a large portion of their revenue comes from speeding tickets.

That should qualify as entrapment.

When I was a teenager working in my local library, I happened on a book called "US 40" by (if memory serves) George Stewart. Written about 1950. He follows 40 across the country; it's an interesting combination of road-geekery and travelogue.
