What’s the most insane roadway concurrency in the country?

<< < (4/14) > >>

One way to hunt and to see the extent of these many-way concurrencies is to go into TM's Mapview:

Choose "Color by Concurrencies" from the first dropdown menu at the top, then probably "Highlight All" from the second and scroll around all you like.

Tip: if you zoom out too much, it will take a long time to load (there's a lot of stuff being pulled from the DB and a lot of things being plotted on the map in that case).  Instead, uncheck "Always Update Visible Routes", pan and scroll to a more zoomed-in area, and then check it again to load the data for that part of the world.

Of course, TM will only count concurrencies of roads in TM data.  If there's also a county route or something like that concurrent, it wouldn't show up. But it does show the 9 for I-465 (note that TM includes Future I-69), and the examples of 7's mentioned above in Folkston and around Athens.

Edit: changed above to mention the 9 on the east side of I-465.

ME 8 begins here instead of continuing on both sides, but it should still count.

I just was there in October, and I've driven the I-465 portion, so I've officially clinched this thread.

TM does not include a GA 422, as it is apparently unsigned, so it shows 7, not 8, on that Athens stretch.

Prior to around 2012, Delphi, IN was home to a concurrency of US 421 and SR 18, 39, and a wrongway concurrency with SR 25, for about 10 blocks.  SR 25 being Main Street.

I-80/90 and I-39/90/94 are a couple of more notable crazy concurrencies.

Depending on your definition of "insane," I think the I-41/US 41 and I-74/US 74 concurrencies are not quite normal.

Also I-73 and I-74 since both are so far off the grid.
