So I guess Connecticut and Rhode ISland too.
connecticut? hell no! connecticut has I-95 running through the entire coast, from new london all the way to the NY suburbs. it has I-84 running through the entire state, east to west, with hartford in the center. also, I-91, which goes through hartford (down from springfield, MA) to new haven. same with I-395, which connects all the way from the coast near new london, up to norwich and up into auburn, MA. it also has I-691, which connects meriden to waterbury.



the answer to this has gotta be delaware, like previously mentioned. I-95 barely runs through it, just wilmington and then scrapes by a couple towns and then it's over. and that's all they've got.

OH>>>>I'll second that about the construction backups in Metro Chicago. Of all, and I mean ALL of the places that I have to drive To, Through, or Around----I despise Metro Chicago the most. Worse than NYC and Metro DC.

GreggB, despite the construction and other traffic backups, IMHO, Illinois has the nicest rest area facilities. What's your favorite state for rest areas?

The rebuilt Illinois Tollway "oases" have decent facilities, but of course they are heavily utilized.

Outside of Chicagoland, which by land area is a very small portion of Illinois, the "Land of Lincoln" has miles and miles of unclogged interstates serviced by clean rest area facilities.

In miles of signed interstates - Delaware?

Hawaii has signed interstates on Oahu.

Alaska and Puerto Rico have 'hidden' interstates - highways that are technically part of the interstate system, and are maintained as such, but aren't signposted (or identified as such in things like a road atlas). The highways in Alaska are non-freeway.

There is only one Interstate in Nebraska: I-80.

I-76 doesn't count. It's in Nebraska for less than a mile. *lol*

Before Robert C. Byrd, West Virginia had 4 miles of divided highway. Now we have I-79, 77, 68, 64, 81, 70, 470, and 6 other freeways

Thanks to the late congressman
