This may be the tiniest toll tunnel in the United States.

Addison Airport Tunnel near Dallas, Texas.

I've never taken it, but its going through the middle of a long, skinny airport in North Dallas. Just knowing that area a little, its probably cheaper to just go through it these days. Every street around there for 2 or 3 miles runs into that airport and traffic can be pretty crowded during rush hour. Not to mention if you're going around any mistakenly went north, its a bit of a maze of airport facilities and large industrial buildings. Otherwise, its matter of simply taking the right exit to avoid it. But if you're in the area, you almost have to take it.

And maybe is the tiniest in the whole world (BTW, I almost had a heart attack when I saw the name. Addison...)

On other hand, I've "Street-Viewed" the George Bush Turnpike, which runs a bit further North of that tunnel, and is in very far better condition than I expected (Or at least it was in 2008). Now I believe is not named after THAT Bush, but after his father.

Anyone know how to get surface street traffic to show up on Google Earth like you can in Google Maps?

Google Maps (shows both freeway and surface street traffic):


Google Earth (shows just freeway traffic when traffic layer turned on):

By the way, using yellow for medium traffic is a bit confusing since yellow is the normal road center line color in Google Maps. Not all roads are collecting traffic data and it becomes difficult to distinguish between roads that have medium traffic vs. roads that have no traffic data at all.

I know this is a late reply.....but this poster has a good point.

In fact, there was one guy from New Jersey who imported a JDM Accord Wagon (right hand drive):

Epic.

Money can buy a beautiful highway in a beautiful place.

I just can't seem to get enough of texan highways.

101 is the most expensive traffic jam in the United States.

Its not only amazing by how big the traffic jam is, but also how long it lasts... i estimate that highway is congested 20 hours a day.

Doyle Drive (US 101) in SF was demolished last weekend, giving way to a temporary bypass until the second phase of the Presidio Parkway is complete:

New section of non-interstate freeway open

The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge over the Trinity River, a westward extension of the Woodall Rodgers Freeway (TX 366) in central Dallas, TX is now open.
