Interstate 76 / 295 / NJ 42 Direct Connection

Another major project underway in the Philadelphia is area is the $900 million upgrade of the junction where Interstate 295 ties into I-76 and NJ 42 (North South Freeway) at Bellmawr. Studies outlined deficiencies with the interchange, including geometric conditions and the lack of a direct connection for I-295 through movements, in addition to the [...]

Boston and Vermont Roadtrip (Day 9 – Lake Champlain, VT to Delaware)

Since our friends decided to leave early, we followed suit and made a day out of it on the way back south.

When finding proposed designations, one has to use some skepticism, especially when not discovering such a route on any other maps. Maps [...]

New York City area bridges

So with that stated I thought I would share some images of bridges not covered on AARoads or new coverage not yet added. These images will [...]
