  Interstate Highway - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For example, in California, most interstates are limited to 55 mph within a major city, 65 mph (105 km/h) for most of the suburban highway stretches, and up to 70 mph (115 km/h) throughout the desert and rural stretches of the state.
Several Interstates in the South U.S., including I-16 in Georgia, I-40 in North Carolina, I-65 in Alabama, and I-10 in Louisiana, are equipped and signed for reverse flow, with crossovers inland after major interchanges to distribute much of the traffic.
On even-numbered Interstates, mileage increases to the east and decreases to the west; and on odd-numbered Interstates, mileage increases to the north and decreases to the south.

 3-digit Interstate Highways
However, when the 1956 Interstate Highway Act was in trouble, an additional 1,000 miles of proposed roads, mostly 3di's in key cities, generated enough votes to pass it.
Interstate 238 (Hayward, CA) gives many road geeks indigestion, as it breaks the rules: there has never been such thing as I-38.
Interstates 66 and 97 have had 3di's proposed or decommissioned, but don't have one now.

 An Aussie in America - Interstates   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The Interstates are a federally funded and coordinated road system running across the entire nation, such that most Americans probably live within thirty miles of one.
In my mind Interstates rank up there with shopping malls and fast food as icons of the U.S. Indeed Interstates form the backbone of a nexus of elements that includes these icons as well as suburbanisation ("urban sprawl"), and that has been reshaping the American landscape since the 1950s.
In the design and operation of the Interstates one detects the basic, unadorned thought: "If we are gunna move traffic from A to B, then that's what we're gunna do." It is a single-mindedness of purpose that reveals the military mentality that gave birth to the Interstates.

 Interstates In Hawaii
For the most part, the Interstate System is a connected network of highways bound by the Canadian and Mexican borders, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

Although Hawaii's Interstate highways are not connected to those in the continental United States, they are built to Interstate standards.

In the 1970s, Illinois proposed a similar route incorporating future I-155 and I-180 as Interstate 53; the number was approved by AASHTO, but the route was declined by the FHWA.

In the map that accompanied the November 1957 letter proposing I-76, I-505 is shown proposed as I-7, and I-580 is shown as I-72.
California officials suggested two-digit Interstate assignments for some routes that are now three-digits: I-9 for what ultimately became I-405; I-12 (then I-14) for what became I-210, and I-13 for what became I-605.

Interstates (1986) is a collection of nine songs written by Geoff Bartley.
Interstates recalls the lost Franklin Expedition and tells of life on the road, and Ever Green is a love song, pure & simple.
