However, some "decoration" such as mandatory art projects and other such crap is often distracting, on top of being a waste of money.

True because I think my favorite highways in North Carolina is I-85 in Durham or I-440 in northern Raleigh when they were rebuilt. Take a look at these!

I-85 in Durham - https://goo.gl/maps/3BQQg5hjKKiMX9Kf8

Now these days I just see highways that are boring (Maybe because they are in the city and supposed to be decorative and nice) such as the Greenville Southwest bypass, Partly the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway and the Greensboro Urban loop.

The brick is not bad for an urban freeway.
