SR-92 Dandridge, Tennessee

Boom! another truss gone.



They replaced that bridge pretty quick, October 2015 imagery in Google Earth shows no signs of construction. November 2016 Street View shows some foundation work on one side and columns and beams on the other side.

Westpark Tollway, Houston, Texas

It turns out that the first phase of the Westpark Tollway extension in Houston opened to traffic on November 7. It's about 2 miles of 'free'way and a 3 mile extension in total, to just before FM 1463.

Media report: https://coveringkaty.com/local-news/...-open-tuesday/



A second phase extension was planned to start around this time, bringing the tollway into the exurban area near Fulshear. However the cost has escalated significantly due to rapidly appreciating land prices.

Look at the rapid suburban expansion over the past 10 years:

One of the greatest goofs of all time. It was corrected sometime between September 2014 and July 2016: https://www.google.es/maps/@40.87339...7i13312!8i6656.

The Interstate shield contains a US Highway number.

US 1 should be signed like this:

A 40 mile drive down Woodward Avenue without hitting a red light.



This one is only 20 miles without hitting a red light but there is more history about Woodward Avenue at the end of it.

SH 288, Houston, Texas

The SH 288 toll lanes under construction in Houston.

This is an easy project with almost no right-of-way impact. SH 288 (the South Freeway) was designed with a future expansion in the median in mind. The most significant cost is to reconstruct the I-610 and Beltway 8 interchanges.

I-610 already was a stack interchange, Beltway 8 was a simple crossing with all turning movements using the frontage roads. They are constructing a full stack interchange with 8 direct connectors there.
