Notes

Among many picturesque sections of I-80 are the crossing of San Francisco Bay over the
San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge (toll paid westbound only), the traverse above Donner Pass and Donner Lake (near Lake Tahoe) in California, and its run along the Truckee River both west and east of Reno, Nevada. Interstate 80 crosses the southern end of Great Salt Lake west of Salt Lake City, Utah.

Interstate 180 in Cheyenne, Wyoming is an interstate with traffic lights.

To add to the quirks about I-80, in Ohio all the way to a Chicago suburb, intersects three interstates (I-90 in Clearview, Ohio to Portage, Indiana, I-94 from Portage, Indiana to the South Holland, Illinois interchange, I-294 all the way to Markham, Illinois; a 4-mile tollway portion). Also, all of I-80 in Indiana is duplexed with another interstate.

Although it never enters Michigan, Interstate 80 (with Interstate 90) lies within ten miles of the Michigan state line between La Porte, Indiana and Toledo, Ohio.

I-80 does not go all the way to New York City, New York via the George Washington Bridge. It stops about four miles short of New York City.
