Well, there's the High Peaks and Exit 30!

Note, the stretch between Exits 30 & 31 has a 1000' foot drop and is the scene of many accidents and freeze-ups, especially on the NB side. Couple years ago, a state trooper was run down and killed by an out of control Canadian truck while he was talking to another motorist during a routine traffic stop. On Friday, 11/18/05, there was a freeze up and eight trucks and one car got into a pileup. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured bur the road was closed for almost 18 hours.
