Highest overpasses

<< < (2/44) > >>

Here's one over I-890:

The NJ Turnpike has a high one near Englewood, NJ between NJ 4 and Broad Avenue.  It is that arch bridge you see before you enter the GWB tangle heading north on I-95.,+NJ&hl=en&ll=40.868335,-73.976871&spn=0.00413,0.010568&sll=27.698638,-83.804601&sspn=9.892242,21.643066&oq=fort+lee&t=h&hnear=Fort+Lee,+Bergen,+New+Jersey&z=17&layer=c&cbll=40.868335,-73.976871&panoid=WjzVS7VHj9VSkgnJwTNLRw&cbp=12,146.84,,0,-22.5

Many of your additions beat mine, but this is Heatherdell Road over the Sprain Brook Parkway:,-73.833056&ll=41.017146,-73.825035&spn=0.013486,0.01929&t=h&z=16&layer=c&cbll=41.017062,-73.825113&panoid=JRqap36IsSC5l0FrVO4QtQ&cbp=12,37.14,,0,0

NYSDOT Region #8 told me personally in a letter that the clearance was 43 feet and 6 inches.

Although Ugly Bridges takes a few inches away from the DOT:

However, due to higher land or a hill nearby, some highways have overpasses that are very tall, here's an interesting example I have: (I-476 over US-6/11). I don't know the exact height but it looks like it could be at least 100 feet. Anyone else have cool examples to share?

That one always impressed me ever since I was 10 years old.

A couple off the top of my head...

The overpass just west of exit 15 on I-64 in Huntington, WV. (West Pea Ridge Rd.)
I-26/US 23 over Big Laurel Road just north of exit 3 in NC. (Might be 150-200 ft. high)

Never saw it in person, but the Mulholland overpass over I-405 looks pretty high, though it's gonna be replaced soon.

There's also the arched railroad overpass over the Arroyo Seco Pkwy.
