I-71
I-74
I-75
I-275 is a close 4th

That's got to be a unique location... I-74 and I-71 are on opposite sides of I-75, so for both to be closer than I-75 would be pretty surprising. I was thinking downtown Cincinnati, or just north, with the 74-75 interchange as the common point, and not too close to I-471.

Edit: a point near UC School of Medicine fits for the first 3 if you count the offramp from 75N onto 74, but I-471 is closer than I-275

I-675, I-75, I-70. Next closest is I-71, which seems so much further away than it really is on the map.

Heh I like this question.
I'm shocked there was only one other houstonian so far.
My neighborhood is just east of downtown
1. IH 69 to the west is closest, about five minutes away
2. IH 45 is about seven minutes to the south
2. IH 10 to the north is probably farthest away at about ten minutes
I love freeways and roads in any state but Texas will always be first in my heart

To all of you: if you list the closest three Interstates and how far away they are, you've given away your location.

My profile uses my real name and my location is in my profile, so clearly I'm not concerned about it.

Mine has also my community in it, which isn't terribly big to begin with.  Doesn't change the fact that you'd still get lost trying to get to my house just like everyone else does the first few times as Google navigating (and seemingly county road maintenance) won't make it all the way.

I-80, I-780 and I-680 are within proximity of my home.

From my place it's 41, 43, and fairly sure 39 (otherwise 94/894 or 94/794 would be a tie)

^ 94 isn't closer?


I moved to the southwest suburbs (either temporarily or permanently yet unknown).

My responses here don't necessarily even narrow down whether I live in California or Nevada... Despite my profile indicating I live in Reno, I'd have the same responses if I lived in Sparks, Nixon, Fallon, or Lovelock in Nevada, or if I lived in Truckee, Herlong, Auburn, or Nevada City in California.

Starting from closest: I-71, I-275, I-75

If 2di only: I-71, I-75, I-70 I-74

Edit: I forgot that I-74 exists in my city after roasting it nonstop for the past 2 years

1. I-99
2. I-80
3? The first two are clear, but I'm struggling with the last. It's either 70/76 (Turnpike) or 180 (in Williamsport), my money's on the Turnpike but it's very close.

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.
