Stub ramps
« on: May 24, 2015, 10:50:51 AM »

Anyone know some interesting stub ramps?

Here are some I know

I-395 Center Leg freeway-https://www.google.ca/maps/@38.898581,-77.01407,3a,75y,39.7h,85.22t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sbYXqH0ywQEyHl0mA5_n3mA!2e0

Infamous I-695 stub-https://www.google.ca/maps/@38.876885,-76.985664,3a,75y,63.08h,84.32t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sY5if6UGQtQf0W0Gyv71GyQ!2e0

I-70 stub ramp-https://www.google.ca/maps/@39.270971,-76.645152,3a,21.4y,291.44h,93.93t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sRUFPWWJFEG2gFRFW_xgRVA!2e0

I-695 stub that is pretty large-https://www.google.ca/maps/@39.31907,-76.487873,3a,75y,33.57h,75.31t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sumXkLdJU-uBA1V8Wyl1FQg!2e0

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.

I-395 Center Leg freeway

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.

Infamous I-695 stub

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.

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.

One is left over in Delaware from SB US 13 to NB I-295 and EB US 40.

One was left in Indy for the never built I-69 into both I-70 and I-65.

Two of them lie along I-78 near Shartelsville, PA for rest areas that never got built.

Here is a stub ramp on Hong Kong's Route 5, the West Kowloon Corridor, which was partially demolished and never rebulit after the construction on Fu Cheong Estate.

Quite the stub of the Amstutz Expressway (IL-137).
Not sure what the stub was for.

Not sure what the stub was for.

The Amstutz was meant to go further north, but I'm not sure how far or if there were any big-picture plans for it.

Likewise in Illinois, my favorites include the north end of IL-6 north of Peoria and the stub ramps near Decatur for an interchange between I-72 and a US-51 freeway that never happened. (link)

All the way to Milwaukee, to what is now WI 794/I-794.

This is the northeast end of the Norwalk (OH) bypass. 

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Norwalk,+OH/@41.2481038,-82.5741857,571m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x883a12e5240c76c9:0x6278f31e62fad3ac

This would have brought US-250 from just south of Norwalk to just south of Milan.  Had it ever come to fruition, the bypass (currently used as-is by US-20 and OH-18)  probably would have had OH-61 rerouted along the bypass as well, while OH-13 would have probably remained running thru town as-is, and would remain duplexed with US-250 on either side of the bypass.

It's a shame that it never got completed, at least extended to OH-61 on the east side, although you could still technically bypass downtown north-south by using the Bypass to US-20 East to OH-601 North in Milan to get back to US-250/OH-13.  The majority of the proposed route still looks like forest and farmland, so technically it is still possible to build it without knocking down too many houses.

US 219 north of Ebensburgh https://www.google.com/maps/@40.553056,-78.71947,3a,75y,102.56h,89.49t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sJ6ccRJp-W10NxuIwpzenew!2e0!6m1!1e1

The ramps aren't really stubs... they connect the active 219 freeway with the older roadway.
I suppose this would belong in a "Stub mainline" thread.

What you're facing is the paved roadway (mainline) facing north, I didn't mean the ramps.

M47 at US 10 in Michigan, no idea where the extension was supposed to go


Interesting that if you click on the map view, the ramp to the right does not exist.

Chris Bessett has a lengthy explanation on his M-47 page http://michiganhighways.org/listings/M-047.html
M47 was supposed to continue north to I-75 at the M-33 interchange, but the continuation was never built. Google maps has the half cloverleaf incorrectly mapped.

I-5 at I-405 in Portland on the East End of the Fremont Bridge, was supposed to be the Presscott Freeway, as well as the East Side of the Marquam Bridge where I-84 was supposed to be instead of the Banfield Freeway.

They said take a left at the fork in the road.  I didn't think they literally meant a fork, until plain as day, there was a fork sticking out of the road at a junction.

Apparently last year they replaced that ramp to make it a trumpet and get rid of the weaving, but the satellite view hasn't updated.

This is pretty standard for PennDOT - just have the high-speed road end where the money runs-out, with unspecified future plans to extend the limited-access highway beyond the stub?

The Google Maps SV shows July 2009, and there is overgrowth on the stub. PennDOT certainly has enough money to extend the freeway, but there is no future plans to do so.

Huh?  Did they plant some of those magical trees that money grows on?  I'm pretty sure they currently don't have enough money.

The magical trees are Act 44. That's why I said they had enough money to extend the freeway, due to Act 44.
