Keelung Road

Keelung Road (Chinese: 基隆路; pinyin: Jīlóng Lù, also called 14th Ave or Jilong Road, referring to Keelung) is a major arterial and highway in Taipei, Taiwan, connecting the Neihu district from the MacAuthur 1st Bridge in the east with the Songshan, Xinyi, and Daan districts towards the southwest, with a connection to Yonghe City via the Fuhe Bridge.[1] Keelung is a very congested route because of its connections to and from Huandong Blvd., Tiding Blvd., Civic Blvd Expressway, Xinhai Road/National Freeway No. 3A, Shuiyuan Expressway, and the Fuhe Bridge, which are all major transportation corridors. There are a series of reversible lanes and bypasses (above ground and underground) along the corridor to provide traffic relieve within the small right-of-way. Notable landmarks along the road include:
