Are there no high speed ezpass lanes in NJ? I haven't been there in 2 years but I only saw EXPass lanes where you had to slow down to pass through.

The MoPac Expressway in Austin, TX.

Quite an interesting road, certainly a break from the other concrete freeways in Texas metro areas.

We do , not at all Toll plazas , at some toll plazas we have gates to. And a few Toll Plazas along the Jersey Shore and some historic bridges are exact cash only.

The brand new James Audubon Bridge




Page 1 of 3
SINGLE PAGE VIEW

NEW ROADS — Although some work remains to be done on the John James Audubon Bridge over the Mississippi River, the longest cable-stayed span in the Western Hemisphere opened for traffic Thursday a month early after five years of construction.

The $409 million bridge replaces the ferry on the Mississippi between West Feliciana and Pointe Coupee parishes, which the state Department of Transportation and Development would have been forced to close anyway because of the rising river.

Richard Savoie, DOTD’s chief engineer, told about 100 people who gathered on the Pointe Coupee side Thursday morning that the department moved up the bridge opening to avoid leaving the two parishes without a highway link during the Mississippi’s coming spring high water.

I live right off of Loop 1. Definitely different than other Texas highways with the lack of frontage roads and the types of exits I see when I leave Texas.

I drove some southern sections of US-95 through California about a year ago. It's a beautiful road. I shot some photos along the highway but I haven't found the time to upload them yet.

The Brooklyn Bridge turns 128 today. A super-centenarian.

Why did you put this in the Non-Interstate Highway thread?

That's a 'floating' bridge - its structure sits on large pontoons that are literally floating on that lake. The water is just too deep and the bottom too irregular for it to have been built with conventional supports.

Ok time for some non interstates.
US Hwy 65 from Branson towards Kansas City, in Branson it is still freeway


In some places concrete barrier instead of wide median.


Most of the road from Branson to KC looks like this. 2x2 with intersections but geometry looks like freeway so probably ready for future conversion










US Hwy 550 in New Mexico from Farmington towards Albuquerque, it is 1x4 road with rumble strips in the middle, for most of its 150 miles
