Quote from: silverback1065 on Today at 07:36:02 AMI-11 makes sense from 80 in Reno to 10 in Phoenix. no need for it elsewhere.
I agree, but I'm also not a huge fan of how it ties way the hell out east of Reno and way the hell out west of Phoenix. Whatever the case, If these DOTs Are dead set on these alignments, They need to find a way to build high-speed expressways to connect to any extension to these respective cities.

Have any links on this? I assumed 11 would just run into 580 in Carson City and 17 in Phoenix via an upgraded US 60.

I gotta say Dallas and OKC feel like two different worlds to me. One is alive and popping and the other is called an up and coming city but is just dead most of time with few areas being the exception.

Quote from: TheHighwayMan3561 on May 31, 2024, 03:00:14 PMI'd say Minneapolis and St. Paul feel pretty different. They did formerly have an intense rivalry and distaste for one another that time and growth have eroded away. St. Paul has a much more Victorian feel owing to Irish Catholic roots, while Minneapolis feels much more similar to Rust Belt cities in some aspects,
I always thought that originally, St. Paul was settled by Catholics and Minneapolis was primarily Lutherans of German and Scandinavian origin.

The one I definitely think about in Iowa that fits is Waterloo and Cedar Falls. Waterloo is old and industrial while Cedar Falls is a college town.

You will still get one on the NJ Turnpike when going thru the ticket/cash lanes. The only difference is the tickets list the price for all vehicle classifications, rather than the amounts for your specific vehicle class.

Quote from: Ted$8roadFan on June 15, 2024, 07:06:52 AMLooks like Canada's 30+ year title drought will continue for at least another year. 

Well, now it looks like the Oilers were very angry about that possibility and did something to at least delay it.

I remember when we used to take the Hennepin County 62 freeway to go to my uncle's apartment and how Hennepin County 18 was also a freeway.

I also remember that the bridge that used to cross the Mississippi River at Inver Grove Heights, MN was a free bridge.

I also remember when Illinois's I-88 was Illinois Route 5.

I also remember when Nebraska Highway 38 went on West Center Road and Center Street in Omaha.

It looks construction on the Legions Bridge could start in 2026 and open by 2032:
