And an overview of the downtown areas with the NAM Plain RHW-4 compact suspension bridge and Avenue raised bridge across the "pond."

More Highways

blogentry-648172-0-40251500-1411006899_t

This is the junction and connections between I-475, a loop off of I-75; Central Parkway, a connector between the central city and the suburbs; and NY 275, a spur connecting I-475 with an avenue. All systems are ground highway.

Large section of I-75, connecting southern Central City with northern Central City (S-N); I-515/I-475, two concurrent loops (where I-475 splits off to the north and I-515 conjoins with I-15 to the east); and the ICCC.

Urban interchange

The Inter-County-City Connector (ICCC)/President's Tollway/President's Beltway:

This elevated highway provides a fast connection for residents who live in the far reaches of the region but work in the city. This is the northern terminus with Interstate 15 (I-15) and the Eastern Expressway.

The Eastern Expressway connects western portions of the city with the eastern portions by means of limited-access ground highway. Its junction with I-15 is constructed as a stack interchange and is noteworthy due to its proximity of the city (much like the High Five in Dallas, TX).

This is the southern junction of I-15 and the ICCC.

Perhaps my favorite interchange, the stack interchange, major interstates I-15 and I-415 join in graceful congruence. The small spur connector in the bottom center is I-375 and connects the nearby commercial area with I-75.
