Upon reaching the Broker coastline the freeway is elevated over the districts of [[BOABO]] and [[Rotterdam Hill]] before it extends over the Broker Bus Terminal and Montauk Avenue in [[Downtown]]. Four slip roads allow entrance and exit in both directions, bringing drivers down to street level.
+
|{{jmark|br}}
The two entrance roads are located along Montauk Avenue as is the Westbound exit road, the Eastbound exit road however brings drivers slightly further West onto Munsee Avenue.
 
   
This intersection is a very important transport link for residents of Western Broker and Dukes as it is positioned very close to the two borough's boundaries and serves as their primary means of accessing Midtown Algonquin. It is particularly conveniently positioned for residents of [[Schottler]], [[Cerveza Heights]], [[Rotterdam Hill]], [[BOABO]] and [[Outlook]].

The freeway travels further east through [[Schottler]], gradually decreasing its gradient as it passes over the Broker-Dukes Tunnel and briefly enters the [[Cerveza Heights]] neighborhood of [[Dukes]]. The freeway then begins falling below street level into a small valley. The freeway now passes under [[Stillwater Ave]] before re-entering [[Broker]] and [[Beechwood City]]. The freeway's third intersection is located here.

Similar to the second intersection, entrance and exit is provided to and from the freeway here by four slip roads;

|{{jmark|fe}}
as the freeway is below-grade however, the slip roads elevate rather than slope downwards. The four roads provide access to a fairly green part of [[Beechwood City]] along [[Saratoga Avenue]].
 
Travelling south along [[Saratoga Avenue]] provides almost immediate access to intersection 9 of the [[Broker - Dukes Expressway]] whereas travelling north along the Avenue will cross you over the [[Dukes]] border into the thriving [[Willis]] district.
 
   
This intersection is not as busy as the Downtown intersection but is an important transport link for residents of Eastern Broker and Dukes. It is particularly conveniently positioned for residents of [[Beechwood City]], [[Willis]] and [[Meadow Hills]].

Access to the [[Broker-Dukes Expressway]] is provided by elevating slip roads. Reaching the Broker-Dukes Expressway from the eastbound Algonquin-Dukes Expressway is performed by using either of the slip roads. Using the first slip road, which extends out from the right, will allow drivers to join the southbound Broker - Dukes Expressway, whereas using the sliproad that extends out from the left after passing under the Expressway will allow drivers to join the northbound Broker-Dukes Expressway. Using neither of these sliproads and continuing along the freeway will result in the driver joining the Airport Ring Road, which provides access to various parts of Francis International. This marks the eastern terminus of the Algonquin-Dukes Expressway.

Algonquin - Dukes Expressway
Algonquin Dukes Expressway

View of Algonquin - Dukes Expressway.

Road information
Start: Montauk Avenue & Munsee Avenue in Downtown
Continuation of Algonquin Bridge
End: In Francis International Airport
Length: 1.1 mi (1.8 km)

The Algonquin - Dukes Expressway is a 1.1 mile freeway that connects Algonquin to Dukes in Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, with three intersections in Liberty City. It connects Algonquin Bridge with the Francis International Airport via northern Broker and southern Dukes.

Of all the Expressways in Liberty City, the Algonquin-Dukes Expressway possesses the most freeway-like features, with sophisticated exit/entrance infrastructure and isolation from road networks. It is also the only expressway with hard shoulders. Other Expressways do possess these features, but not for their full lengths.

It is most likely based on the Midtown-Queens Expressway being part of the Long Island Expressway in New York City. The fact that Algonquin Bridge carries the expressway is based on the planned-but-unbuilt Lower Manhattan Expressway.

Traffic is light throughout the Expressway.
