Exactly two weeks later on April 32nd, I present to you a slice of the Northeast: VT, MA, CT, and NY. Highlights include NY 17/I-81/I-86 construction, Northfield Tunnel, two! meets in New York, and a Merritt Parkway tollbooth. Click on through to the other side for details. As always, please send me comments, corrections, praise, etc.

Always great to see more CT coverage. For grins, here's the part of my "link maker" script that automatically provides a link to your matching page from my state route pages. I'm super glad that you have a consistent URL naming system. I'll need to add 167, 168, etc. for the latest update.

Speaking of adding links:

UPDATE!
Featuring US 220 construction and old US 220 in PA, a ton of railroad bridge views and embossed signs (Kenilworth and Boonton Twp. are your hints) in NJ. You know the drill. https://www.alpsroads.net/roads

I read the California stuff, but from the link on West Coast Roads.

First time on your site, and this was a great first impression  :D (though correction, the signs say "Easton Way" for Exit 33 now, but still)...
Quote
Basically, an elaborate and expensive system was set up to prevent traffic from Exit 32 accessing either Exit 30 or Exit 33. Why? A bunch of rich people who like their "Easton" development and don't want the east side mucketymucks mucking it up (it's what they do best). Exit 33 is signed for Easton, which doesn't exist; what does exist is Easton Way and a shopping center. The Exit 33 overpass, which you can see on the corresponding counterclockwise page (see link at bottom), is also labeled "Easton." So incredibly pretentious of them
Also all the button copy photos for Ohio, a blast from the past.

My Fictional Highways

Fundamental Theorem of AARoads - Let "y" represent the elevation above sea level in a certain area. If "Δy" between the highest and lowest values of y equals to 0, it's Illinois.

You would be surprised how much I needed to read this reaction post. :) Interesting that they realized their error and corrected the signs.
