Prospect Mountain Project

A long term project currently underway in Binghamton, New York addresses both the notorious "Kamikaze Curve" section of New York 17 (Southern Tier Expressway) and replaces the structurally deficient bridges both over the Chenango River and at the directional T interchange joining the future I-86 with Interstate 81. Named after adjacent Mt. Prospect, project work [...]

Map Finds from February 15th

Occasionally we make trips out to area flea markets, swap meets and antique stores in the search for more maps to add to our growing collection. The majority of these are open on weekends, with others, like New Castle Farmers Market's outdoor flea market in Delaware (a long time favorite of mine), open on Friday [...]

New Interstates in the works

Three new Interstate sections are in the works, planned, or coming to fruition. Discussion on the AARoads Forum highlighted three recent additions: Interstate 781 is the number proposed for a new freeway spur from Interstate 81 to Fort Drum in Upstate New York. This route would enhance access to growing Fort Drum and bypass a [...]

Mr. Mayor…Tear down this freeway

That is the cry of the Onondaga Citizens League about Interstate 81 in downtown Syracuse. Built in the 1960s, the aging viaduct is nearing the end of its lifespan, begging the question, do we repair it for $100 million or tear it down and build something else? Supporters of the demolition plan cite Milwaukee's 2002 [...]

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. Decided on Interstate 89 south to check out the Barre Connectors first, both of which appear as freeways on maps sometimes, but really are expressway-like roads with no private driveways. Vermont 62 spurs [...]

New York City area bridges

My mind wanders a lot, especially about roads, and tonight ever so randomly I was thinking of bridges, and bridges in New York City and its metro in particular. 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 [...]

Rochester, NY update

I decided to take a break from my updates to U.S. 1 and the creation of Florida Keys guide to do a spot update on Upstate New York. So I created new guides for Interstate 590, the eastern half of the Outer Loop freeway at Rochester, New York, on North East Roads @ AARoads. Last [...]
