  Expressway - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An expressway is a divided highway, usually 4 lanes or wider.
The vast majority of expressways in either sense are built by state or provincial governments, or by private companies which then operate them as toll roads pursuant to a license from the government.
Although there were some plans to upgrade the county expressways into full-fledged freeways, those became politically infeasible after the rise of the tax revolt movement in the mid-1970s.

 Jingjintang Expressway - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
With a history of over ten years, the expressway is beginning to feel the crunch of massive traffic, especially the incessant onslaught of heavy lorries.
The expressway was designed for a traffic audience of 50,000 vehicles a day -- and apparently, not a vehicle more, as the current average of 59,000 vehicles a day is stretching the expressway to its limits.
The situation on the expressway in 2004, therefore, is different from that of 1993.

 Expressway - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Often, "expressway" is such a loose term that it has been labelled to roads ranging from freeways to super-2s (intended to be upgraded to freeways) and partial control-access arterials (such as the relocated Highway 7 in Richmond Hill, Ontario).
By this definition, the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto is a "freeway" instead of an "expressway".
The point of this passage is that California expressways can have at-grade intersections (which may not always have traffic lights), which are obviously much more dangerous.

One businessman called the proposed expressway "a skyway" that The Worcester City Council was presented with 48 separate petitions denouncing the state plan, and even asking for the resignation of Sheridan.
EXIT 12 (MA 146 / Brosnihan Square): To accommodate the extension of the MA 146 Expressway (Worcester-Providence Turnpike), the MHD is rebuilding this exit as a partial "trumpet" interchange to permit movement from northbound MA 146 to westbound I-290, and from eastbound I-290 to southbound MA 146.
To counteract the disadvantage of a "T" intersection of expressways, it is desirable to have arterial routes continuing from the intersection.

 CT 2 Expressway
As the expressway was constructed throughout the 1960's, the state highway department handed over responsibility of the original CT 2 to town authorities.
The existing CT 2 Expressway should be widened from four to six lanes between I-84 in East Hartford and the CT 11 Expressway in Colchester.
A new CT 78 Expressway should be built to parallel CT 2 from the end of the existing CT 2A Expressway (which would thence be re-designated CT 78) in Preston to the end of the existing CT 78 Expressway in Stonington.

 Gowanus Expressway (I-278)
Soon after the expressway conversion was approved, work began on widening the elevated section from two to three lanes in each direction, and eliminating some entrance and exit ramps.
Further south, the newly christened "Gowanus Expressway" was extended from the western terminus of the Belt Parkway to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, despite vociferous protests by Bay Ridge residents.
Replacing the Gowanus Expressway with a tunnel would be cheaper in the long run than rebuilding the crumbling elevated highway and would revive moribund neighborhoods in southwest Brooklyn, according to a study by a regional planning group.

 Click opera - Expressway   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
I'm sure this expressway really exists in Osaka somewhere, one of Japan's many elevated urban motorways, but somehow this photo emphasised how radically strange it is to put roads on top of your buildings rather than at the base.
The two events which focused expressway building were the 1964 Olympic Games (when Tokyo's Shuto expressway was built) and Expo 70 (which saw most of the Hanshin system in Kansai constructed).
Having elevated expressways is great for Japan because it doubles useful space, but if they're not reinforced properly, then Hanshin Daishinsai-like tragedy strikes and the elevated roads collapse upon hapless drivers and pedestrians alike.

 East Hartford - Glastonbury Expressway
The East Hartford - Glastonbury Expressway, which opened in 1952 and 1953, is a 4.6-mile segment of what is now routes 2 and 17, from High Street in East Hartford to Main Street in Glastonbury.
Glastonbury officials, concerned over the safety of students walking to the nearby high school (which was also new construction), lobbied the state to add a grade separation at Hubbard Street, with ramps to and from the north.
The manner in which Route 2 was joined to the older expressway accounts for the left exit and entrance at Routes 2 and 17.

Early completion of this comprehensive expressway system from Manhattan and Queens, through Nassau to the county seat of Suffolk County, is the only logical solution to the intolerable congestion resulting from the rapid increase of building subdivisions, extraordinary population growth and large increase in motor vehicle registration.
Long Island Expressway: Beginning at a point on the New York City line in the vicinity of the village of Lake Success, thence running generally easterly through or near the hamlet of Jericho to the Nassau-Suffolk county line in the vicinity of the hamlet of Plainview.
In 1962, the LIE east of the Clearview Expressway was changed from NY 24 to NY 495, for the purpose of consistency with the I-495 segment in Queens.
