The highways were ambitious projects with very far-flung surface and sometimes they can connect two points situated at thousands miles away.
The Pan-American Highway

, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile and Argentina.
The Australian National Highway

The Trans-Siberian Highway
On third place, Trans-Siberian Highway is the second road from this top which connects two points from different continents. Trans-Siberian starts from Baltic Sea and ends at the Pacific Ocean. Total length of this highway is 11.000 kilometers.
The U.S. Highway 90
Last road from our top is The U.S. Highway 90 which counts “only” 5000 kilometers and it travels Northern US of America from West to East. It’s the second highway (after Pan-American Highway) in USA according to its length and it came on third position in both America’s continents (North and South).
