At first I thought 270, 495, 70

but I forgot 370

so then 270,370,495 since I'm closer to 495 than 70 according to I-270.

But as the crow flies I-70 is closer if measuring between me and I-70 around New Market MD instead of Frederick.

So 270, 370, 70

I-44 is the closest, but the next two are much further away.

2. I-49 (west about 65 miles)

3. I-40 (south about 120 miles, I-70 is a close 4th)

Same, but different order:
1.  I-49, just 6.9 miles
2.  I-40, 45.0 miles
3.  I-44, 82.0 miles

I-94 (6 miles)
I-41 (also 6 miles)
I-43 (about 20 miles, though it seems much farther and I almost never have use for it)

Since I-94 and I-41 are the same, here's a bonus....
I-294 (30 miles, though it seems closer because I use it quite a lot)

I like this type of threads, in which I have a definite answer even if it is 3250 miles away from me :sombrero:.
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.

75 and 64 are the obvious first two for me, but I'd have to pinpoint my location on a map and then do one of those circle-thingys to figure out the third one. Possibilities are 71, 265, and 640.

I guess you mean a drawing compass.

The measure distance feature on Google maps did the trick for me.  I kinda did spin it around like a compass.

There's a circle tool here. It doesn't take into account the curvature of the earth, but for small distances, it shouldn't matter.

I had to look at a map for this one, but:

I-75
I-10
I-295

I keep forgetting how close Gainesville is to Jacksonville, probably because of how inconvenient it is to get there compared to Tampa, Orlando, and Tallahassee.

In aerial distance, the ranking is I-435, I-49, and I-35.  In driving distance, I-35 is significantly closer than I-49, because there's almost no way to get to I-49 from here that doesn't involve backtracking, and the ways that don't, require significant distances of travel on surface streets.

In order by distance as the crow flies:

1 - I-97
2 - I-195
3 - I-95

All within 6.5 miles.  Honorable mention to I-695 and I-895, both under 10 miles.
