Back at my previous home in the Kansas City area: I-35 (~1 mile), I-635 (~2 miles), then I-435 (~4 miles).
When I lived on Long Island, the closest was I-495 (because Exits 64 and 65 were in my town), I-95 (across the Long Island Sound in Bridgeport, CT) and I-295 (Clearview Expressway in Queens). So the second and third closest were pretty far out of reach for me.

The three closest Interstates to me are I-69, I-24, and I think I-40 by a hair over I-57.

Here in Madison, there are only three Interstates that come into the area. Interstates 39/90/94 head northwest to Portage, Interstate 94 heads east to Milwaukee, and Interstates 39/90 head south through Janesville and Beloit en route to Rockford.

Near me lies, 95 and 78. They are rather close with 95 (I think) being the farthest from me. Oh and I-287, canít forget that one.

In the North Bay.. I-580, I-80, I-780.

None of them are very close though - I'm about 30 minutes from 580

I-20 is closer but I can get to I-285 a good bit quicker.

My guess was going to be Purdue, which would get the order right (assuming that was intentional).

It's overwhelmingly likely to be Purdue.

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.

Growing up, I was about 2 miles from I-80 & 94, about 4 miles from I-90, and about 6 miles from I-65. Tack on another 10 or so, and I'd hit I-294.

Right now? I'm 2 miles off of I-20, about 3 miles off of I-285, and about a dozen miles from I-75 & 85.

Now that I think about it, I-91 might've been closer to my former hometown than I-295. But at least I-295 doesn't require spending a ton of money to cross the Port Jefferson-Bridgeport Ferry.

I'm getting no solutions. (The only places where I-95 and I-93 are within 7 miles are too far from I-90.)

I completely forgot about the part of I-93 south of Exit 7. I already knew you lived in Needham.

EDIT: What you did just revealed where you live to within 0.1 miles. I don't want to give it out publicly, obviously.

It is Purdue, and yes, the order was intentional.

1. I-5
2. I-405
3. I-90

This could apply to a good chunk of the Seattle metro area. As the crow flies, I'm about the same distance from the nearest foreign freeway (BC 99) as I am from a fourth Interstate (I-705).

I don't have the time to figure it out exactly even if I did want to, but I have several friends that live right in the Needham/Dedham area. It is a small world that seems to keep getting smaller!
