From where I'm sitting it's most likely I-79 between I-77 and US-19. From Newport News, it's likely I-66 inside the beltway (the only section of interstate I'm missing in the state). That, the US-360 Keysville Bypass, the US-23 Big Stone Gap and Norton Bypasses, and VA-267 are pretty much the only sections of freeway in VA that I have not driven (aside from a few stubs I'm probably blanking on)

I think for me, it's the US-8 freeway stub off I-35 north of the Twin Cities. Otherwise, I do believe I've hit every bit of freeway in the Cities.  This includes:

Ayd Mill Rd when it was still a pseudo-freeway
MN-121 and CSAH-122 when they were still freeways
The short freeway stub of MN-65 in Blaine
All three freeway sections of MN-51 (St. Paul, Roseville, near I-694/US-10)
The short bit of Warner Rd that's freeway
The brand new St. Croix Crossing
Both Twin Cities-area freeway sections of MN-13
The MN-55 Hiawatha freeway stub in Downtown Mpls

Last one's not a freeway...there are RIRO's on both sides between County Road E and 694.

One of these isn't MN 13 but instead is unsigned MN 801.

Now here's a question...have you hit the freeway stub of now-MN 62 coming off 494 in Inver Grove Heights since it was changed from MN 110?

Forgot about that  O.o

I meant the section containing MN-13 Exits 94/95A/95B (CSAH-5/I-35W)...  and the section containing the exit to MN-77 (don't know the number offhand)  *heh*

Yup!  :)  I think that would make MN-3 Exit 122?  :-D

I've recently (within the last 2+ months) clinched two of the three closest to me (E-470 from Pena Blvd north to I-25 and the Powers Blvd freeway segment in Colorado Springs), so now I have the NW Pkwy between I-25 and US 36, and then?

I guess the next closest would be I-76 northeast of Fort Morgan to I-80 (then maybe a return on I-80 to Cheyenne...but I'd have to go all the way to Laramie to clinch that whole non-driven segment).

That's not a freeway.  It just happens to be a cloverleaf in the middle of an at-grade arterial...

Mine is I-25 south of Buffalo (~170 miles away); it always makes more sense to use WY 387 if I want to go to Casper.

It's about 50 miles from home.

I've never driven I-94 between I-196 and Mattawan, which is the only section of I-94 I haven't been on between the Six Flags Great America exit north of Chicago and Hall Rd (M-59) in Macomb County

For me it's I-5 between the I-580 junction near Tracy to CA-33 interchange in Santa Nella.

There is a very small section of I-355 between the NB355->EB88 and the WB88->NB355 ramps that I haven't covered yet.  46 miles from home.


Finally got this bit today.  Now it's I-74 west of I-55, 122 miles away.

Only freeway I’ve yet to drive in NC is the section of I-26 west of Asheville to the TN border.

The Birmingham end of I-22. I'm near Atlanta.

No, wait: I've also never driven the I-20 to I-59 north stretch of I-459. That's 169 miles from my house.

EDIT: Nope, it's I-26 near Spartanburg, a mere 150 miles away.

*really pulling as I was on it while the tolling points where up but not changing. and I did drive on the I-290 to IL-83 part.

I think for me, it's the US-8 freeway stub off I-35 north of the Twin Cities.

I have now driven this mini-freeway.

I guess that makes US-14 in Albert Lea the closest I haven't driven on yet.

I think that the nearest freeway segment I have never been on would definitely have to be Tennessee Highway 111 from US 27 to the end of that freeway segment in Dunlap.

The interesting thing, though, is that despite myself never having been on it in real life, I still have road videos from part of this stretch of road (and other parts of TN 111 as well heading north to Cookeville), thanks to my other family members, from when some of them once went on a trip up to Cookeville, Tennessee.

I have, however, been on all the US 27 freeway north of Chattanooga (off of which TN SR 111 splits off, and takes the limited-access specification with it), en route to the Dayton, Tennessee area (so we continued on US 27 North instead of taking the TN 111 freeway).

FL 429 above US 441, as I was a passenger in someone else car after it opened last year.  Have not yet driven it myself, but near me.

"Driven" could, but does not have to, be taken literally. You could also include the nearest freeway you've never been on period.

If driven is literal, I-95 for me.
