Where I-70 gets stopped by two red lights

Where I-70 gets stopped by two red lights


Breezewood, Pennsylvania (PA), US
Years ago, it was against federal regulations to directly connect interstates and toll roads. While that rule has subsequently been eliminated -- Pennsylvania has never been able to directly connect I-70 to the Turnpike due to pressure from local business owners who make revenue of travelers. Thus traffic on I-70 must travel through two red lights on US 30 to/from the Turnpike.

The labels option was selected for the purpose of making the viewer aware of how these roads were configured -- and thus why it is an oddity on the interstate system.
