I never cease to be jealous of America's interstate and freeway system, specially the urban ones. Sure, USAs pop. density is far lower than Western Europe, yet they have a far higher highway/area (km/km2) - if you account lane x extension / area, they have even more impressive numbers.

Above all, I love how Ameircans have few, if any, major gap in their national highway system, while we, in Europe, couldn't yet dig second bores in Frejus and Mont Blanc tunnels, for instance.

This two tunnels have an AADT of only 5.000 (details here), do they really need two tubes?

I-65 never reaches Grand Rapids, it ends in Gary. And I-94 is missing between Chicago and Minneapolis.

Most probably yes. There're already ~50,000 km of motorways in China.

Looking at this map, not all are 2x2. I'm pretty sure the yellow road to Lhasa is not 2x2. However, many of the other probably are. And Chinese motorways are really impressive, just the drivers are crazy.

Only the roads in red are actually open. Other colours (except grey) are planned or under construction.

UK motorway network

Shockingly poor compared to population density
