List of structures built on top of freeways

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following is a list of structures built on top of freeways, which may include freeway lids, parks, buildings, monuments, and parking garages.

Schlangenbader Straße (snake)

The complex at Schlangenbader Straße 23-36 was built from 1976 to 1980. A particularly good infrastructure is ensured by the A 104 motorway, bus, underground and S-Bahn connections.

Up to 46 meters high, the seven residential hills of Schlangenbader Straße tower over the city. The connected apartment blocks (1,215 residential units) have a total length of 1.5 kilometers and were built as a superstructure directly above the four-lane motorway A 104. Nevertheless, there is no noise here. On the contrary, in the Schlangenbader Straße, it is quiet and green in the middle of the big city.



The Gate Tower Building is a 16-story office building in Fukushima-ku, Osaka, Japan. The tenant of floors five through seven is the Umeda Exit of the Ikeda Route of the Hanshin Expressway system.

  • Capitol Crossing: A 7 acre commercial development built on a three block long deck over Interstate 395.

  • Illinois Tollway oases, multiple locations and Interstate Highways: Rest areas which extend over the Interstate Highway.[2] There are six oases, located on the Tri-State Tollway (I-80, I-94 and I-294), Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (Interstate 90 in Illinois) and the Ronald Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88). The four on the Tri-State Tollway and the one on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway are built over the roadway, while the DeKalb Oasis on the Ronald Reagan Memorial Tollway is on the south side of the roadway. Customers are able to sit inside the oases and eat while traffic goes by beneath them. This type of development is common in the United Kingdom.
  • I-290 has a former U.S Post Office over it. The building existed first and was designed to accommodate a future road through it, which was ultimately built in the 1950s as the Congress Expressway (now the Eisenhower Expressway). Google Street View



  • Interstate 90, Boston: The Prudential Tower and Copley Place in downtown are built over Interstate 90. A less-known fact about Interstate 90 is that it is built over what used to be the largest railroad corridor in New England; photos from the 1950s show huge rail yards where I-90 now comes into the city. Many of the oddities on I-90 are the result of deals struck by the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority, Perini Corporation (which constructed the majority of the highway), and existing buildings at the time of construction. Aerial images: Prudential Tower Copley Place In 2020, Massachusetts started the first major air rights development program over Interstate 90 since the Prudential Tower was completed in 1964. A quarter mile West of the Prudential Tower, Samuels Associates started construction in 2020 on a new 15-story, 435,000 square foot (40,400 m2) office building and 13-story, 150,000 square foot (13,900 m2). In 2021 Meredith Management and IQHQ will start construction a half a mile west on the Fenway Center project - a 1.4 million square foot (130,100 m2) life sciences and office development featuring a two-acre deck above the Massachusetts Turnpike and a pair of buildings including a 22 story tower on top of the deck.
  • Interstate 195, Fall River: Government Center is built above the freeway.
  • Interstate 90, Newton: a Shaw's supermarket (referred to by traffic reporters as the "Shaw's overpass" or the Supermarket overpass (formerly the "Star Market overpass") and the Sheraton Newton Hotel (now a Crown Plaza hotel) are built atop I-90.

  • Interstate 394, Minneapolis: Three parking garages that were funded as part of the U.S. Route 12 improvement are constructed above the Eastern terminus of the road. They are the Seventh street ramp, Fifth Street Ramp, and Fourth Street Ramp.

  • Interstate 66, Arlington: The parking garage next to Washington-Lee High School is built over top of 66 which is trenched at this point so as to reduce the noise levels in surrounding neighborhoods.
  • Interstate 564, Norfolk: The runway of NAS Norfolk-Chambers Field passes directly over the western end of I-564. A C-5 Galaxy (the largest military aircraft in the western world) once got stuck on the overpass and motorists could view the gigantic aircraft as they drove underneath.
  • Downtown Expressway, Richmond: Kanawa Plaza was built over the 195 toll road to reconnect the city's business district to the James River. The 3 acre plaza features a large, sunken pool, an open air venue and tree covered areas for smaller groups. It was conceived in 1972, completed in 1980 and renovated in 2016.
