Tuesday Trivia: Double Intersections

OK, Chicago cartography fans.  Name a pair of streets in Chicago that intersect each other twice.

Our answer: Sheridan and Broadway.

Sheridan and Broadway meet in Lake View (via Apple Maps)

Sheridan and Broadway also meet in Rogers Park (via Apple Maps)

Sheridan and Broadway also meet four miles north in Rogers Park, a ricochet that sends Devon west and Sheridan northward.

Chicago is such a large city (234 square miles) that there may just be another pair of road warriors.  If you know of one, let us know, too!

    • Exactly. They intersect at 3900N/800W (Sheridan E/W, Broadway N/S), 4400N/1000W (Sheridan N/S, Broadway NW/SE, 6 way with Montrose E/W) and 6400N/1200W (Sheridan turning from E/W to N/S, Broadway north terminus)
