Anyone know some interesting stub ramps?

Here are some I know

I-395 Center Leg freeway-,-77.01407,3a,75y,39.7h,85.22t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sbYXqH0ywQEyHl0mA5_n3mA!2e0

Infamous I-695 stub-,-76.985664,3a,75y,63.08h,84.32t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sY5if6UGQtQf0W0Gyv71GyQ!2e0

I-70 stub ramp-,-76.645152,3a,21.4y,291.44h,93.93t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sRUFPWWJFEG2gFRFW_xgRVA!2e0

I-695 stub that is pretty large-,-76.487873,3a,75y,33.57h,75.31t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sumXkLdJU-uBA1V8Wyl1FQg!2e0

PA-63 stub-,-75.000525,3a,62.5y,320.65h,89.82t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sLQ72N2G8OY3ksXc5rnHrDw!2e0

Anyone know any other stubs?

The MTQ is pretty bad about this. They were from cancelled extensions of highways.

A40 at A40/A73/A573. I believe A40 was supposed to be extended west here, but was instead made part of a concurrency with A73 south.

Further West: A40 at A55. A40 was supposed to be extended east here, but again, was instead made part of a concurrency with A55 south and then sent east to Quebec city.

Not so much a "stub ramp" as it is extra pavement width that was never used, and will actually be removed as part of a current air-rights development project.

This was I-295, not I-695.  And is gone now.

As for the subject, there have been threads on this in the past, including recently.

The R.H. Thomson Expressway ghost ramps in Seattle are fairly famous. WSDOT started demolition of them last October, sadly.,-122.2966256,384m/data=!3m1!1e3

There is a never-used ramp from the Red Mountain Expressway (US 31 S/US 280 E) to EB 1st Avenue North (US 11 N) in downtown Birmingham that dates back to the early 70's.
