Scenes Pertaining to Interstate 80
There is no direct connection between Interstate 476 (Pennsylvania Turnpike Northeastern Extension) and Interstate 80 at Leonardsville in northeastern Pennsylvania. Instead a pair of trumpet interchanges join access roads from both highways to Pennsylvania 940. A traffic light governs the intersection of the access roads and Pennsylvania 940 midway between the respective on-ramps to Interstate 80 and 476. Pictured here are button copy overheads for the Interstate 80 on-ramps from Pennsylvania 940 and Interstate 476. Photo taken 07/21/00.
Southbound U.S. 209 Business (Main Street) at Interstate 80 in Stroudsburg. A half-cloverleaf interchange joins Interstate 80 & U.S. 209 above with Main Street below at Exit 305. The freeway itself is narrow with four lanes and a 50 mph speed limit from Stroudsberg eastward to the Delaware Water Gap. At the Delaware Water Gap, Interstate 80 crosses the scenic Delaware River via a tolled bridge into the Garden State. The bridge carries a $1 toll for all passenger vehicles traveling in the westbound direction. Photo taken 07/28/00.
