I'll assume that you're being facetious with the above-post; but in case you're not, such is an old expression for stepping on the accelerator.

Probably the I-84 C/D setup in Manchester.  Well-engineered and works well with the topography.

A future contender will probably be the I-91 Exit 29 complex once it's finished in a couple years.

You said "literally".  Was I not supposed to take you literally?

I should've mentioned this earlier; how about including the previous sentence of my earlier reply (reposted below with bold emphasis).  Such provides better context.

I call this the warp-speed ramp because the lane doesn't end once it meets I-95.  If there's nobody in front; one can literally gun it.

That said, I personally think you know darn well what I meant.

^^Phrase (in terms of acceleration) has since been added to my original post.

I'm partial to the onramp for exit 181 on I 75/71 south, burlington pike (ky 18), the exit right before the world famous "Florence Y'all" watertower. it is the longest onramp that I have ever experienced and every time I use that portion of highway, I make an excuse to get off there just so I can take that onramp.

i mean, it runs next to the highway and it's got a chicane on it.  what's not to love?

the reason why I can't include the northbound on ramp is because I've not gotten off at that particular exit, plus I recently found where that on ramp begins. it doesn't start next to the highway and I would never have found it if I weren't looking for it.

i wonder what the longest onramp on the system is.

One of my favorites is the IN-445 exit off I-69 near Cincinnati, IN.
My absolute favorite is somewhere in the Virginias, there are a couple exits that curve off in weird directions because of the mountainous terrain. Driving on the interstates through the Appalachians is really neat.
