^ It certainly should.  There are "Jersey freways" with actual median seperation, not a concrete barrier, here in Jersey.

I-40 in New Mexico :)

for some reason, I remember those "TEMPORARY" side roads being closed off.  Am I mistaken?

that said - I-40 around the NC/TN line.  I-5 in the Grapevine.  I-8 in a few spots in western Arizona.  And probably others I am not recalling successfully.

I'm sure I-10 and/or I-20 in far western Texas are also like that. It's been years since I last came through what I used to call "the world's largest nowhere!"

IL 72 through Busse woods (I290 to Arlington Heights Road) is sort of a jersey freeway Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. Those days, left turns are prohibited. The only intersections in that area are access to the preserve.

PA 12 seems to be a Jersey Freeway for a few miles: http://goo.gl/maps/TkpXg

It does look like part of the Gordon Highway in Augusta, GA is that way.  There are long segments between signals that have RIRO situations in between them.

There is a short section of I-90 just west of Gillette, WY that has RIRO accesses to exurban sprawl side streets.

Also, there is a RIRO side road connection on WB I-80 in the Delaware Water Gap in New Jersey.

A lot of that I think is actual freeway, though. I'll be back before too long, as I alternate going that way with US 222 and US 1.

Yeah, most of it is. It has businesses and cross streets on it from the beginning to the "ramps" to PA 183, all left over from back when surface 422 along 222 south of there fed right into Warren Street(?). I don't know much about the configuration history right there, though.

Google mistakenly labels it as "expressway," despite the businesses.

- The section of MD 140 that is used as a transition from I-795 in Baltimore is a jersey freeway.

- US 29/460 east of Lynchburg, VA was recently turned into a jersey freeway with jug handles and no left turns. You can only enter and exit businesses from the right side of the road. This was done in order to avoid extending US 29 southeast of Lynchburg (which would completely bypass it)

- I would argue that Utica, New York is one giant jersey freeway. Their slogan should be "no left turns ever".

I would add portions of US 5 (Riverdale Rd.) through West Springfield, MA and the portion of US 5/CT 15 known as the Berlin Turnpike - through the towns of Berlin, Newington and part of Weathersfield, CT.   

US 41 between IL 120 and Deerfield, IL also qualifies as this type of highway. 

What all three have in common was that they were originally constructed back in the 1930's and 1940's, before standards for limited access highways/freeways were standardized.   Which is also why you still see highways such as this in much of Latin America.   It's definitely cheaper to do it this way.

Mexico is full of this type of expressway.

MX-2 between Calexico and San Luis Rio Colorado is like this as well.
