Does anyone know when Mon-Fayette Expressway from Uniontown to Brownsville phase II opens? On their website they state spring 2012 but it looks like the website wasn't updated for a while.

I believe it is planned to open in June. The key is the bridge across the Monongahela River.

Do you keep track of all the road projects around the world?

I was expecting answer from someone from US but I underestimated your speed and efficiency on this forum

WisDOT begins design work for planned WI 15 Hortonville, WI bypass

http://www.postcrescent.com/article/...0101/120321043

This will extend the four lanes on WI 15 from just west of WI 76 in the unincorporated Greenville area to US 45 at New London, WI, making the entire highway four lanes. The last that I heard, the bypass section will run around Hortonville's north side as a freeway (grade separation at County 'M'), but with no interchanges, only an upgradable roundabout at each end where it meets the 'old' road, with the rest of the upgrades being on the existing ROW.

This is one of the state's recently-enumerated projects and is likely to be built within the next five to ten years.

WI 15 carries very heavy local/regional commuter traffic, but little overhead through traffic since US 45 was rerouted off of it in late 2003, on its entire route here in the Appleton, WI area and the traffic is overwhelming the current two-lane WI 15 street though downtown Hortonville.

Drove US 301 through Eastern Maryland a few days ago...good god does the speed limit need to be adjusted. Forty miles of very rural, straight, flat road, four lanes of limited access (no red lights, a few interchanges with some odd right-left-turn intersections thrown in).

55 mph the entire way. I would have felt safe doing 75.

Haha much of the speed limit in the NE needs to be adjusted, luckily nobody does the speed limit up there.

The purpose of the 55 mph limit on US 301 and US 50 is to give the Eastern Shore counties an excuse to turn them into cash cows(meaning strict police enforcement) since they are relatively poor compared to Baltimore-Washington, and lots of traffic during spring and summer time. On the topic of Eastern Shore, they should built bypasses for US 50 in several towns.

It's really only Easton and Cambridge that you lose time in. Salisbury already has a bypass.

Easton could do with a By-pass (the current US 50 already is a by-pass but has long lost that advantage), by-passing Cambridge, though it looks short, would cross through a lot of wetlands bordering the Choptank. Speed enforcement is indeed borderline ludicrous - there's even a "special enforcement area" in the town of Trappe (no Speed Trappe jokes, please )

But overall the 55 on US50 is justified due to the red lights. 301 has none.

Tollways Texas 130, Texas 45 Southeast to see 80 mph speed limit


Quote:
The Texas Transportation Commission, relying on a state law passed last year, voted unanimously Thursday to raise the speed limit on Texas 130 and Texas 45 Southeast to 80 mph. The action comes seven months after the limit had been raised on those two Austin-area roads from 70 to 75 mph.

Officials said, however, drivers should wait to hit the gas until actual signs go up with the 80 mph limit and that change could take another month or so.

Wrong thread. This thread is for non-interstates, and both I-105 and I-110 are interstates.

This is also probably a test for TXDoT to see if exurban and suburban freeways can handle 80.
