Thanks, Nexis, for the pictures. Mahwah sounds quite weird, btw

However, you seem to have the Timon-syndrom: a dirty windshield

Who picks Mahwah as a control city anyway? It's just a small suburb like there are numerous in that area (Wyckoff a.k.a. Jonas city, Franklin Lakes, Darlington, Oakland, Pompton Lakes etc.

Ramapo College & Numerous Corporate Offices are HQ up there aswell as 1 state Park. Its a Big Town, i think its the biggest by area in my county. Ramapo College is getting so big they might build an Interchange on I-287 for the Collage and surrounding area. Darlington , is a village within Mahwah. Oakland isn't along Route 17 its at the the end of NJ 208. Wyckoff is off of NJ 208 next Franklin Lakes , all three of those are Rich towns. Pompton Plains is along I-287 & US 202 in Wanaque River Valley, it has alot of Resoviors that Feed Newark & Jersey City aswell as the surrounding towns.

It doesn't help all that much to put "New York City" as the control city for every single highway heading in a northeasternish direction in that area.

Cline Ave (IN 912) freeway bridge in Hammond/East Chicago, IN to be closed permanently, replacement in doubt

http://www.chicagobreakingnews.com/2...eaking+News%29

This is a lengthy (a bit over 2 km) viaduct bridge that snakes its way around and between several steel mills and other industrial sites in extreme northwest Indiana. It was opened in the late 1980s.

Hmm, that's an alternate to the I-90 toll road. This area is one of the ugliest in the United States, a lot of industry, like steel mills, railroads, ports, refineries, freeways and urban prairie. Almost all of the Indiana shore looks like this, quite a pity.

SR-912 carries 33,500 AADT at that bridge. Not a lot, but too much to just dump on local streets. I-90 is only interesting if you drive the full length of SR-912, which I doubt many people do, it primarily serves East Chicago.

I suspect that the gambling casinos in the East Chicago and Gary, IN area are most interested in having that road fixed and reopened, IN 912 is their main access, so we'll have to see.

BTW, there is no toll advantage to getting off of the Toll Road (I-90) at Cline Ave (IN 912) in Hammond and then back on via Cline Ave and the Borman (I-80/94) at Gary's east edge - that whole 'bypass' routing is between the Toll Road's 'westgate' barrier toll and the Ticket barrier east of the Borman - with a time loss to boot. The only toll advantage is to stay on I-94 between downtown Chicago and Gary east rather than taking I-90 between those points.

I remember going to Resorts/Ameristar a few times using Cline Avenue. I don't remember any part of that road being particularly bad as far as bumpy rides are concerned. Then again, it was always night.

Lake effect snow is usually on eastern shores. Chicago is on a western shore.
