Default I-360 Turnpike

Here's a pic of the I-360 Turnpike taken in 1957 which includes the future site of Six Flags.

Look at all that open green space.

I'm confused, though... I-30 was the turnpike... 360 is a state highway, not an interstate.

Actually it's where State Hwy. 360 crossed the Dallas-Ft. Worth Turnpike (aka I-30).
