Traffic Jam Backs Up Cars on 50-Lane Highway in Beijing - This Is Not A Typo


Recommended Posts

If you had asked me to name how many lanes the widest highway in the world had, I *might* have said ten.

The 50-lane part of the China story appears to refer to the approach to the toll booths, not the highway itself.  The widest highway in the world is variously reported as a two mile stretch of I-5 near San Diego with 22 through lanes, or a stretch of I-10 in Houston with 26, but that includes frontage and HOV lanes.   I often drive I-85 in Atlanta which, to the best of my recollection, has 16 lanes in spots.
