...exclusion of tolls from freeways.
I thought the word "freeway" is meant for toll-free roads, with words like "tollway" or "turnpike" defining toll roads.

"Freeway" has always been meant to imply that traffic flows freely (no at-grade intersections with stops).  Has nothing to do with whether there are tolls.

Chicago area has not used this term, until the Bishop Ford Freeway was named. {And was kind of forced} We have used Expressway and Tollway since the 1950's. Also, simply "4-6 lane highway" for at grade through roads.

Was thinking whatever a region calls a limited access road was local language, i.e. LA Freeways and NYC Expressways/Parkways, etc. But learned here it's official US Govt term, will not challenge the lingo here.

Locked Thread – Usually posted about one quarter-mile from a discussion which turned into "I don't like user x", rather than the merits of the existing user base.

You know what? It's really not cool to make fun of members. Some members may post abrasive content, off-topic, etc. Call them out for it in those threads. Keep the brackets to yourselves, k?

Why was my "Amazing, well not really" post deleted? That had nothing to do with targeting anyone.

Posts like that are typically Collateral Damage, if it doesn't stand up on its own.

Pork

(2) served at places with signs featuring a cartoonish version of itself, usually with headgear

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.
