Yesterday’s 5 & 10 Quilt is the northern part of the East Los Angeles Interchange complex and this map is the southern half. I had quite a bit a of trouble trying to properly name this map because I couldn’t really figure out which interchange was which! So instead of selectively naming only a couple of the highways, I decided to name this map using ALL of the highways.
According to the Wikipedia entry:
* Interstate 5 enters the complex from the south as the Santa Ana Freeway, but exits to the north as the Golden State Freeway. The Santa Ana Freeway continues west as U.S. 101 to the Four Level Interchange (Bill Keene Memorial Interchange) in downtown Los Angeles.
* Interstate 10 is not contiguous through the interchange. Heading west into the complex on the San Bernardino Freeway (I-10), the primary road (or trunk) heads to U.S. 101. In order to follow the I-10 alignment, one must exit the trunk road and follow a connector that merges with the alignment of southbound I-5, then exit that trunk and follow another connector to the Santa Monica Freeway (I-10); note also the change in the freeway’s name.
* Heading west into the complex on the Pomona Freeway (CA/SR-60), the primary road (or trunk) heads into the Santa Monica Freeway (I-10).
Up next will be the Four Level Interchange.

This interchange is apart of the East Los Angeles Interchange complex, which is one of the busiest freeway interchanges in the world. I am going to make a few more maps of this interchange in the coming days.

Finally I have a map for Iowa! The only states left to map are Vermont, Connecticut, and New Jersey….
Since the source imagery was .4 ft per pixel, which is extremely high resolution, I was able to only use the area around the capitol dome. This means there are only a couple of features of the area’s geography that come through.

On August 1st the bridge in this map unexpected collapsed killing and injuring scores of people. Having family living in the Twin City area, I took notice of this bridge’s collapse and decided to make a map.

I really like the way the color of the water shows up. The buildings are slightly bleached out, but its because the source imagery arrived that way. I want to make Madison next but its only available in black & white. bleh.
