I'm typically going through Lancaster to Harrisburg or somewhere north; I don't go towards York at all. That 372 looks way out of the way unless you're south of York anyway.

Speaking of plans in the area, I'd like to see PA 41 expanded. At the least, there should be more than one spot to pass truck for the northbound side. There's the one spot north of Cochranville, but that's it. There's two places to get around trucks when you go southbound, basically before and after Atglen, so I think a second passing spot northbound is reasonable.

Is there a back road that locals use to go past the suburbia and strip malls? I've tried 340 but I have not noticed a big difference. How well does Strasburg Pike from the last exit ramp south into Strasburg work?
It depends a lot on what time you're going. Coming home from suburbia at 5pm rush hour.. We've started hopping on 340 all the way in Parkesburg (jumping on 10 where 30 stops being an expressway). Much better I think, because Gap is a massive chokepoint and all that road is a mess when a ton of trucks are in there..

I'm actually debating whether it'd be worth it to take the turnpike in the afternoon.. but I've no experience with the turnpike at all, Google says it's extra 10 miles and same time.. but with traffic I've no idea how it would be.

Just a little update FWIW - started taking 340 from Lancaster through White Horse to 10 and then hopping on 30. Unbelievable what kind of a difference it makes. It's an average 50 mph ride all the way through but Intercourse and it's just so much better than 30. Much more scenic, too, but it saved an enormous amount of time, especially the ability to bypass Gap and its traffic. I guess it makes a difference in rush hours but that's exactly what I needed.

Nice!
The Palisades Parkway is one of my favorite roads in the New York area, particularly in foliage season.

I-80 in Western Utah

This ought to be one of the most surreal/exotic natural scenarios you find around any highway anywhere in the World. I drove there once but not in favorable conditions (twilight). Surely want to travel there again

Does anyone know if the proposed/started US Route 15 bypass around Shamokin Dam and Lewisburg is going to be built? I could really use it nowadays.

First I've heard of it, not that I necessarily would.

You might ask (or lurk) at aaroads.com/forums. If no one there knows, no one knows. Except possibly Chris.

It was certainly intended to do so, judging by the northern terminus of the US 15 freeway at Selinsgrove. However, this is Pennsylvania, so I wouldn't hope for too much, especially with the PA-147 freeway on the other side of the river.

No pictures, but I drove over the (finally completed) Indian River Inlet Bridge on Del 1 last week, and it looks nice.

US 10, Wisconsin

A new freeway corridor was opened to traffic in Wisconsin today. A 31 mile freeway is now complete from Marshfield to I-39 at Stevens Point.

http://www.marshfieldnewsherald.com/...yssey=nav|head

It appears to be a full-fledged freeway on a new alignment.

Edit: it will open to traffic on August 23:

US 14, Minnesota

Another upcoming freeway opening in Minnesota, when the 4-laning of the US 14 between Mankato and I-35 at Owatonna will be completed. A ribbon-cutting was today.

http://www.keyc.tv/story/19331713/ri...ing-highway-14

The new road that was completed today is between Waseca and Owatonna.
