Where can you drive on the world’s widest highway?

Question: Where can you drive on the world’s widest highway?

Beijing, China
New Delhi, India
Frankfurt, Germany
Houston, Texas

 

The answer is: Houston, Texas

With a staggering 26 lanes in certain sections, the Katy Freeway just outside Houston, Texas, is the world’s widest highway by number of lanes. The highway doesn’t run for very long — just 23 miles between Houston and the I-10 intersection at the city of Katy — but it manages to serve more than 219,000 vehicles each day. The 26-lane section (at Beltway 8) is the result of an extension in 2008, after local residents complained of a huge traffic bottleneck.
