Interstate 90 Illinois
The longest interstate in the country is Interstate 90. It begins in Seattle, Washington, and goes all the way to Boston, Massachusetts. At a length of over 3,000 miles, the highway goes through Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and Massachusetts. On Day Three of the Fields Trip, I drove Interstate 90 from Interstate 290 in Chicago to Interstate 80/94 near Portage, Indiana.

Express/Local split. The brown sign on the
right post of the sign bridge indicates that
U.S. Cellular Field can be accessed from
the next three exits.
|After much warning,
Interstate 90/94 splits
into the Express/Local setup. For some
reason, I took the local lanes. I guess I did
so I could get better pictures of the exits.

Pay Toll" sign as the highway

on the Skyway are in this style, much like
those found in Colorado, Utah, and Arizona.
|Chicago Skyway Toll
Plaza on "TO" Interstate
90 East. A $2 toll is paid for 2-axle vehicles.
|The highest point
on the Skyway is at the top
of this bridge. Moveable barriers were in
place on this part of the highway.
|View from the top
of the bridge. Lake
Michigan is seen to the left. Otherwise, there
isn't much to look at. Unless you like industial
areas and power lines.
|The only eastbound
exit on the Skyway is at
the eastern end for U.S. 12/20/41/
Indianapolis Blvd./106th Street. The highway
enters the state of Indiana after crossing the
federal highways and becomes Interstate 90
once again, without the "TO" banner attached.
