I-244 passes through a mini canyon at Lewis Avenue as shown in this view looking west from a pedestrian overpass near Birmingham Avenue. There is not an "exit" to Lewis Avenue. Instead, motorists wishing to access Lewis Avenue from I-244 must either exit at Delaware Avenue (westbound) or Utica Avenue (eastbound) and follow Admiral Place (which serves as a frontage road) to Lewis Avenue. The same situation occurs for motorists exiting/entering I-244 to the west of Harvard Avenue, as they must exit at Delaware Avenue to access Harvard Avenue. The east side of Harvard Avenue has direct access to I-244, and each major street east of Harvard Avenue has direct access to I-244 for both directions except at Mingo Road and 129th East Avenue, which have no access to the east due to their proximities to adjacent expressways. This photograph was taken September 13, 1986.
