Updates April 19-21, 2020 – Florida Round 2

Recently tallied all the photos taken throughout the Sunshine State for the site over the last 15 plus years and ended up with over 45,000. That is not to say that every one will make the site, as there are many duplicates, several blurry photos, and ones that were taken with bad context -- but many will get posted in the coming weeks, [...]

Updates April 15-17, 2020 – Florida

With the extra time at home due to social distancing because of COVID-19, have taken the opportunity to really dive into a long standing back log of photos spanning the state of Florida from 2006 onward.

Florida Daytrips and Site Updates

Took a couple of additional daytrips taking advantage of the continued lighter traffic across the state of Florida this past week. The first drive covered a number of urban state roads throughout Jacksonville and Duval County, while also updating some older coverage of I-95 and I-295. Coupled with photos taken in January and November 2019, finally updated pages covering Interstate 95 south from the Georgia state line to I-295 at [...]

Updates March 17, 2020 – New York

Had planned a roadtrip for New York City and the Upstate for next week, but with the ongoing COVID19 pandemic and associated travel restrictions, curfews, etc, threw that idea out last week. Nonetheless, was already working on revising the New York section of the site, starting with converting all remaining overview pages for Interstate and U.S. Highways still in old html. With those revisions, scan old maps for just about [...]

Updates March 2-3, 2020 – Back to Florida

Went to Orlando over the weekend and realized that we never updated the page for Florida State Road 435 (Kirkman Road) south. The arterial joins I-4 with Universal Orlando, and the interchange joining the freeway with SR 435 was rebuilt as part of the I-4 Ultimate project. Although still not completed, the ramps have already been realigned and left exits from I-4 to SR 435 removed. Posted complete coverage [...]
