Best, by what measure? I lived in L.A. for many years and thought the freeways were well maintained and you could get anywhere using freeways. But they were generally jammed whenever you needed to get anywhere.

Here in Denver, some freeways have been widened and are in great condition while others are in poor condition and have never been widened, so they're always jammed/useless.

Phoenix, AZ has the most modern, attractive, and easily navigable freeway system of any major city in the US.

I think the Philly area might be the worst.

I would agree with this. And the traffic isn't that bad compared to other large metros.

The worst is probably NYC. It's a crumbling disaster and a huge maze.

It's been years since I've driven through the Philly area, but I'm curious to know--has I-95 been completed/connected?

is crazy to think that for as close as NYC and Philadelphia are no highway actually directly connects them to this day. I mean their closest actual city borders are only 46 miles yet still no direct highway

even with the new turnpike connector you really will only in signage be connected and will still require at least two (maybe three) interchanges to separate highways

the NJTP constructions is going really fast though. They are basically building another highway all at once doubling the NJTP capacity below 8a

Honestly i cant believe how fast it is going up

speaking of which NJ has really good highways for as bad as PA's are

Nope and neither has Route 55(NJ).
