If I measured correctly:

  • I-83
  • I-76
  • I-283
I-81 is also very close.

As the crow flies:
1. I-43 (69 miles)
2. I-96 (74 miles)
3. I-75 (84 miles)

Driving distance:
1. I-96 (87 miles)
2. I-75 (106 miles)
3. I-296 (unsigned, 115 miles)
4. I-196 (118 miles)
In driving distance, the following interstates are all closer than I-43 (whose closest point via driving distance is 348 miles): I-39, I-41, I-55, I-57, I-65, I-69, I-70, I-74, I-80, I-88, I-90, I-94, I-180 (IL), I-190 (IL), I-194 (MI), I-275 (MI), I-290 (IL), I-294 (IL), I-355 (IL), I-375 (MI), I-465 (IN), I-469 (IN), I-475 (MI), I-475 (OH), I-496 (MI), I-675 (MI), I-696 (MI), I-865 (IN)
Not counting the SS Badger/US 10 Lake Michigan Ferry in the Driving Distance to I-43, I take it?
If I were to count the Badger mileage, I-43 would be #2 in driving distance (just slightly farther than I-96). It's 348 miles without ferries

I-275, I-71, and I-75.
Next would be I-471.  Next closest 2di, I-74.

As the crow flies and rounded to the nearest mile:

Tied for first are I-80 and I-90 on the Ohio Turnpike - 6 miles away
3rd place is I-280 - 38 miles away

Just missing the podium (or in 3rd place for 2di's only) is I-71 - 39 miles away.

1. (Tie) I-80
1. (Tie) I-90
3. I-75
4. (Close to tie) I-280 (Ohio)
4. (Close to tie) I-275 (Michigan)
4. (Close to tie) I-94
Where is 475/Ohio on the list?

DOH!!  It would actually be #1, since I live in western Monroe County, MI. Can't believe that totally slipped my mind.

I-894 (WI) would be identical to I-43, too.

I-75
I-275

You can probably guess which I-275 I'm referring to by the third interstate. Sorry, I don't feel like gathering up the mileage right now.

Living in Asia, a safe bet would be H1, H2, and H3.

Vietnamese roadgeek... I think that's a first! Since I haven't come across you before, welcome.  :wave:

As for me, back home in Chicagoland as the crow flies it would be:
I-294 - about 1.5 miles
I-94 - just under 3 miles
I-90 - about 8 miles

Once I-490 is built, it technically might be a tie for 3rd place for me, since the closest point on I-90 is almost exactly where the interchange is being built.

:) Needs more... :sombrero: Not quite... :bigass: Perfect.

As stated upthread, the three closest to me in San Jose, in order, are 280, 880, and 680.  That got me to thinking about my previous residences and Interstate proximity there as well.  So here goes in reverse order:

Hesperia, CA:  15, 215, 10 (40 misses by about 6 miles)
Redlands, CA:  10, 215, 15
Anaheim Hills, CA:  5, 15, 405
Portland (SW), OR: 5, 84, 205
Napa, CA: 80, 680, 780
Roseville, CA:  80, 5, 505

That takes me back over 30 years; enough for these purposes.

I wonder if there's a triplet that has two "solutions" -- that is, two different parts of the country.

For example, Broken Bow, NE is closest to 80, 76, and 180.
If not for I-99, then Bellefonte, PA might be closest (crow flies) to 80, 180, and 76.

I will try to find one. No guarantees.

Okay, I found one. If you live in central or eastern Maine you are most likely closest to I-95, I-195, I-295, and I-395 (yes, four). If you live around here (https://www.google.com/maps/@41.7829269,-71.6631533,12.89z) in Rhode Island, you are closest to I-95 and a different 195, different 295, and different 395. Not in different parts of the country, but three of the four Interstates are different.

Don't forget I-495 (although the Maine one is unsigned) (Sorry, didn't read OP). Also most, if not all, of Europe is closest to those four interstates :evilgrin:.
Supporter of the construction of several running gags, including I-366 with a speed limit of 85 mph (137 km/h) and the Hypotenuse.

Please note that I may mention "invalid" FM channels, i.e. ending in an even number or down to 87.5. These are valid in Europe.

Max Rockatansky

Apparently about 50 miles from I-5, about 130 miles for I-205 and I-580.

Huh, you're right. I had no idea there was an I-495 in Maine. Learn something new every day.  :spin:

Back at my previous home in the Kansas City area: I-35 (~1 mile), I-635 (~2 miles), then I-435 (~4 miles).

Now that I'm in South Carolina, I-26 is the closest at about 4 miles, followed by I-526 at about 5 miles, and then I-95 at 40 miles.

ChiMilNet

I have three within 5 miles of where I currently am...
I-294 ~2.5 miles
I-88 ~2.5 miles
I-290 ~3 miles
As a bonus I am JUST over 5 miles (~5.5 miles) to I-355.

Although I have to go about 4 or so miles to get to I-294 NB and I-290 WB.
