I-70 in Denver runs over a street for a mile or just east of 25
isn't there a street downtown LA, maybe figueroa, that runs above
The Fort Pitt Bridge in Pittsburgh used to be a double decker but I
heard it was being redone and I have no idea if it's retaining that
configuration or not (or might actually be done by now, I haven't been
back to Pgh. in over two years)
this is going to be awesome for my 2064 trip to moscow!
If you mean double decker expressways (not including bridges), then the
Long Island Expressway where the BQE runs under it for about a km or
There are a few sections of one direction of lanes running over another
in NYC to: the BQE at the Brooklyn Esplanade (near the Brooklyn Bridge
and overlookin Downtown Manhattan), and the FDR in a few places I think
in the 70s-80s, under some hospital/research center.
Also - Rte. 21 in Northern Newark, NJ (near the southern terminus of
it's freeway part - OK, the divided limited access part north of
downtown Newark, as it picks up again south of South Street...)

Grand Avenue is the street you're probably thinking of. It's two levels
where it goes past MOCA and the Disney Auditorium. Then 3rd Street tunnels
underneath both of them.
Schuylkill Ave runs directly over I-76 (Schuylkill Expressway) and
serves as the feeder for 30th Street Station. It runs along a river
(like Chicago) and it has our Regional Rail tracks running over it. It
serves as the road to both onramps to I-76 & I-676 (Vine Street) for
everyone on the west side of Center City. It also connects to the
Walnut, Market, Chestnut, and JFK Blvd Bridges.
I believe that's what the OP was referring to.
In San Francisco Stockton St. runs in a tunnel under Nob Hill
starting under Bush St. and ending at Clay. Stockton St. also runs above
the tunnel climbing up the hill and is a residential street while the
tunnel resembles an expressway with no cross streets, lights or parking.
In order to get above the tunnel you have to exit Stockton a block
before in either direction, go around the block and then resume on the
A similar situation happens with the Broadway tunnel.

San Francisco has a few, on hills in the Chinatown area. For
instance, where Grant Ave. goes through a tunnel near Sutter St.,
there is a second Grant Ave. directly above the tunnel section --
with building numbers continued as if it were the same street.
(And there are stairs connecting the two for those on foot.) Weird.
