True, but even without the ports, I'd still say it's rendered in a way
that makes it look like it's underground, even without the "ports".
Or at least in some way different from a regular road which just
happens to have a building over top of it.

That question was kind of an aside, but I'd say most (though maybe not
all) subway platforms are *within* tunnels.

Which brings us squarely to a different problem, the same one as when
multiple highways go through a single bridge.  Sometimes multiple ways
go through a single tunnel too.

In any case, I seem to remember there being some tunnels at some of
the casinos I've been to which have doors opening into the basement
level of a building.
