Lowest US Interstate Highway Route Number

The lowest US interstate highway route number is the 123 mile long I-4 across Florida, from I-275 in Tampa to I-95 at Daytona Beach.

Longest Straight Road in Britain

Britain is better known for its winding roads than its dead straight ones so news that the longest straight road in the country is 15.1 miles long might come as a surprise. It’s a section of the A15 north of Lincoln that goes between Scawby and Scampton airfield.

Lowest A-Road in Britain

One to avoid after a few weeks of heavy rain, the lowest A-road in Britain is the A1101 between Bury St Edmunds and Long Sutton in Lincolnshire. For the majority of its length it barely rises above sea level.

Motorway Language

The development of Britain's motorway system added words such as pile-ups, contraflows, middle-lane hogs and hard shoulder to the English language.

Longest A-Road Wholly in Scotland

The longest A-road wholly in Scotland is the A9 at 279 miles, with the A82 coming a distant second at 175 miles, and the A836 is the longest 3-digit route at 125 miles.
