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 and Road News for the week of February 1

This week we finished adding photos taken last month in Upstate South Carolina and moved on from there to additional material sent in from Peter in the Green Bay area. Carter shot some of U.S. 123 between Easley and Greenville, so we coupled those photos with previous photos he took in April 2014 and from a drive Brent and I did back in December 2008 to three new pages. U.S. [...]

Updates and Road News for the week of January 18

While a blizzard dumps one to two feet snow on the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, here's a look at some of the updates at AARoads this week.

Indiana-Michigan Trip Day 5 (Jeffersonville, IN to Montgomery, AL)

Interstate 65 south at I-265, SR 62 and SR 162. Commenced the final day of this trip from Jeffersonville, Indiana, just outside of the Interstate 65, I-265, and Indiana 265 interchange. Avoiding the bulk of traffic along Interstate 65 into Louisville, we opted for I-265 west to I-64 and out of the Falls City area. The west end of Interstate 265 in Indiana. Currently [...]

Indiana-Michigan Trip Day 2 (Cincinnati, OH to Coldwater, MI)

Began the morning of day 2 just outside Cincinnati on a cloudy morning with the last remnants of cold front moving out. Decided to poke around downtown Cincinnati for an hour or so before heading westward along Interstate 74 to Champaign, Illinois. The trip would turn us north along Interstate 57 and east to Michigan later this day, and how far into Michigan we would make it depended upon how [...]

KY-IN-MI-OH Trip Day 2

Day 2 - Seymour, Indiana to Petoskey, Michigan Heading north from southern Indiana to the capital city, Interstate 65 continues with four lanes and loads of tractor trailers. The constant beating the pavement takes from the moving freight prompted officials to resurface the route from Whiteland to Greenwood in 2007 as part of the INDOT Major Moves initiative. Expansion of the road to six lanes does not occur until Exit [...]
