This thread is basically just an idea board for new thread topics at this point. It should either change its name or get locked.

Nonsense. Have you actually been reading all of the replies? :rolleyes:

If not, here's a selection from the last couple pages.

US declares Puerto Rico the 51st state, starts building Interstates there
There are 3 unsigned Interstate highways in Puerto Rico.  https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highways_in_Puerto_Rico
I thought they didn't meet the standards, though.

Yeah...and neither do many interstates in Pennsylvania as well.

Most 2dis violate standards at one point or another:

10, 20, 40: at-grade intersections in very rural areas
93: one lane in each direction through Franconia Notch
95: outdated design through NYC; several others throughout the Northeast also have outdated designs
5, 64: drawbridges
I-40 has at-grade intersections? Also, I-64 should be fixed-span by 2030.

In Texas from MM-0 to MM-12, as I recall.

Oh, I'm now seeing that on Google Maps. I knew I-10 and I-20 had them, I never realized I-40 did as well. Next, you'll tell me I-35 between Austin and Dallas has at-grade intersections  :-D

One of Marf's sockpuppets would probably create that thread, although he'd direct it at webny99. Not sure what the origin of Marf's grudge against webny99 is.

I made some joke about his "Maine Highway Fridays" (which were hilarious, at least IMO). I wish I could remember what thread it was in.

:rofl:
Then he got worked up that I made fun of him, and it went from there.

EDIT: OK, so I was at least partially to blame. I randomly inserted a comment about Maine Highway Fridays into the OP of one of my threads. I killed myself laughing at the time, having no idea of the havoc it would wreak.

Where on I-20?

Here is where some folks cheat alot....

https://www.google.com/maps/@31.3909349,-103.6014659,3a,60y,282.27h,74.3t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s8VZZXl2LpShAD5rBgfxjRQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en

https://www.google.com/maps/@31.403021,-103.5375881,3a,75y,267.64h,88.66t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sb2-K3hC2UHr0qzffyxOu8w!2e0!7i16384!8i8192?hl=en

I'm done looking. I'm tired.

I don't know how common this is elsewhere, but for a while I-295 in NJ near the lakes around Exits 14 - 16 were beginning to get a fair amount of RIRO traffic between interchanges, where people could drive off of I-295, take their cars down to the lake to drop off their small rowboats or kayaks, and then just park on the grass off of I-295.  Eventually the State Police must've informed the vehicle owners that this was a no-no so it eventually stopped.
