Funny how in every picur, the freeways are relatively empty. It's like they shot these an hour after sunrise some year when new Year's Day fell on a Sunday.

Most were taken in the 60's when traffic still moved along in LA.
/would like to see modern photos.

I'm pretty sure that's a heavily photoshopped image of the intersection of I-580 and I-980 in the Bay Area.

The commenter said its the MacArthur Maze in Oakland.  I tried to Google Map it and got nothing.  There is a complex interchange of 3 interstates.... but looks nothing like that.

Looks like some of the freeway monstrosities they have in Shanghai.

The High Five in Dallas is pretty impressive when approaching it from the ground level:

It's a stock photo.

It's a stock photo.


It's also photoshopped:

The image was composited with Photoshop. I spent over two days painstakingly selecting sections of roadway, then copying pasting sizing and rotating the pieces to fit together an ever more complex puzzle.

I don't think that image is. I think I remember that image years ago on worth1000 in one of their photoshop contests.

I've never thought it was particularly impressive. Annoying as shiat most days (I loathe 635 with a fiery passion, but the last time I used it (last week) they have apparently finally finished the heavy construction at 635/75 so it's not skullfarkingly terrible to use right now), but on the ground you can't really see that it's as weird and massive as it is. If you're flying over you only see 1 road, if you're going under you really only see the pillars and risers.
