They also can't be unsigned.

Hmmm... this will be a tricky one since I live in a county where one of them overlaps another interstate:

#1 (TIE)- Interstate 80/90 (Indiana Toll Road (ITR))
#3- Interstate 94
#4- either Interstate 196 or Interstate 65

1. I-15 (about 1/4 mile away)
2. I-90
3. I-115 (MT)

#2 would have been I-315 (MT) in Great Falls, except it's unsigned.

I-70, I-235, I-135, because going in a straight line east from my house, both are well west of I-35.

1. I-35 (about 10 miles west of here)
2. I-90 (in Minnesota about 40 miles straight north)
3. I-380 (at least 82 miles away in Waterloo. 82 miles is the official distance from Mason City to Waterloo according to the most recent Iowa map I have, but presumably, that's only to downtown Waterloo)

Closest to my home is I-66 (about 1.2 miles to the northwest as the crow flies).

Second closest is I-395 (about 2 miles to the southeast).

Third is I-695 in D.C. (about 5.3 miles to the east, slightly closer than I-495 to the west).

As the Bird Flies or Driving Distance:

Bird Flies: I-57, I-24, I-55
Driving Distance: I-57, I-24, Tie between I-55 and I-64

Mississippi River is in the way with no crossing immediately to my west, making the drive to I-55 longer

I proclaim myself unofficial winner of this exercise.
1. I-39 (4 miles)
1. I-90 (4 miles)
1. I-94 (4 miles)

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

Do Multiplexs really count as separate interstates, tho?

Of course they do. The question was "what are the three closest Interstates", not "what are the three closest roads that are designated as Interstates".

Closest: I-95 and I-495 are concurrent with each other, within two miles. If you don't count them as concurrent because the I-495 number is posted solely for motorist convenience, then I-95 is the closest and I-495 shows up less than a mile to the west.

I-395 is next-closest after that, within about another half-mile after I-495.

Then I-295 in Maryland (about nine miles by road).

Well, in that case, just need someone who lives in the South Loop or Chinatown in Chicago to beat your 3  :spin:

Just realized...As the crow flies, the 3rd closest to my house is in PA. All 3 below are within 3 miles if my house...

295
76
95

Even I-676, which would be the 4th closest as the crow flies, is still within 4 miles.

So my 3 separate interstates still win over your combined single road.

The Rochester area only has 3 interstates besides the Thruway, if you can count that. So this is not going to be a very informative answer, because unless you're in Victor or Henrietta, this is what you get:

1. I-490
2. I-590
3. I-390

To be clear, I was not serious about calling myself the winner. I just said that because I am one of the only ones on the forum whose three closest Interstates are all concurrent.

Is the Thruway an Interstate? I think so.
