Road-related Trivia Questions
« on: October 26, 2013, 04:49:53 PM »

***You cannot use the Internet to find the answers.***

There is no chat anymore, so I put trivia here.

You can answer other people's questions, and you can also make questions.

(Yes, I know these. I just want to see if you do.)

What is the only Interstate in New York that has no 3-digit interstates and is not planning on being extended?

Which two routes in Massachusetts are in only one city, have one end at I-93, and cross MA 28 in the middle?

What is the only route in Keene NH that was not originally a New England route?

What are the only two non-Interstate freeways inside I-285 in Georgia?

Which route is closest to the mouth of the Mississippi River?

Which Interstate becomes Mexico Route 15 at the Mexico/US border?

After going north on the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan, what is the first US route you will see?

Which US route is closest to Intercourse, PA?

Not counting Hawaii, what is the southernmost freeway in the United States?

Finally I can answer some trivia questions. Those trivia nights were really trivia (over)nights for me! (Really, who would take part in a event that is held at 3:00 A.M.?)

What is the only Interstate in New York that has no 3-digit interstates and is not planning on being extended?

I-88

Which Interstate becomes Mexico Route 15 at the Mexico/US border?

I-19

After going north on the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan, what is the first US route you will see?

US-2. Also the only one.

Which state route is the highest numbered one in ME? :sombrero:

Which Interstate becomes Mexico Route 15 at the Mexico/US border?

I-19


If we're being technical... AZ 189 turns into Mexico 15D and Interstate 19 Business turns into Mexico 15. I-19 ends a few blocks north of the border.

Not counting US territories like Puerto Rico, it would be Florida 821.  If you're talking non-tolled controlled access highways, it would be Florida 826.

All these are Connecticut questions:

Which two state routes have portions that are impassable during the winter? (They're both signed routes, not secret.)

Which interstate route once featured a mainline crossover (that is, the opposing direction is on the right, and your direction on the left)

Which unsigned route is a double-decked, one-way route?

Which signed route designation was active for only 10 days before being withdrawn?

Where in the state was another four-level stack interchange proposed?

What two routes form a short wrong-way concurrency through a single-lane underpass?

There are four, actually. In addition to the already-mentioned GA 400 and GA 166, there's also the GA 13 freeway (formerly part of I-85), as well as the portion of the Stone Mountain Freeway (US 78) that extends inside the Perimeter.

I-84. (Yup, I spent too much time reading about American highways before realizing that the roads in this side of the pond are interesting, too)

I repost my question about Maine:
Which state route is the highest numbered one? :sombrero:

Here is an interesting bit of NC trivia.  See if you can figure this one out.  First one isn't too difficult.

Greensboro had one potential route # = exit # and one actual one.  What route was it, and where was the potential one?  It may help to know that neither is currently in this configuration.

NC has five non-MUTCD compliant LEFT-bannered exits.  Where are they, and what makes the left banner non-compliant (hint, one is different from the other four).  Note:  This does not mean those that are simply left-tabbed without the banner (except for one, those are not recently upgraded).  That might help locate the others.

Here's one from Georgia.  It's okay if no one gets this, but here goes:  Before starting to upgrade their exit signs to the MUTCD compliance, Georgia actually complied with one major aspect of the specification.  The answer I'm looking for here I can give you a hint:  Several non-MUTCD compliant states also have implemented this specification for quite some time, though only a handful.

Part of the Greensboro question: I-40, exit 220 was once US 220.

MA 203 (Boston*) & MA 213 (Methuen)

*Access to MA 203 from I-93's Exit 11 (nb) & 11B (sb) (via Granite Ave.) is actually located in Milton adjacent to the Boston border.

Takumi has the answer about 220 right.  Exit 220 (Randleman Road used to be US 220 to Level Cross) was the potential one, and the actual one was US 220 South off the short-lived 40 bypass in Greensboro.  It is now exit 95.

Any ideas on the other two questions?

Correct. LA 23 ends in Venice which is the last community on the river which is levee protected. Any place further south is on stilts and can only be reached by boat.

It's not the closest road overall, though, as there is a parish road that extends a little further southwest into the Tidewater community (comprised largely of a lot of oil industry related infrastructure)

I know where two of the non-standard left exit tabs are. I-85 southbound, where US 1 turns away from it for good.




The "left" portion of the banner is not black-on-yellow. I'd rather this be the standard, honestly.
