Updates and Road News for the week of February 1

This week we finished adding photos taken last month in Upstate South Carolina and moved on from there to additional material sent in from Peter in the Green Bay area. Carter shot some of U.S. 123 between Easley and Greenville, so we coupled those photos with previous photos he took in April 2014 and from a drive Brent and I did back in December 2008 to three new pages. U.S. [...]

Updates and Road News for the week of January 25

Well no big snowstorm this week, at least for the east coast. The western U.S. however is receiving a large storm system, with heavy rains and mountain snows. Rainy now across #SierraNevada passes but that'll change this evening as snow levels drop. Plan ahead! #cawx pic.twitter.com/x3omK3JV2t — NWS Sacramento (@NWSSacramento) January 29, 2016 Now on to the road news and updates for this week at AARoads. Today we completed adding [...]

Updates and Road News for the week of January 18

While a blizzard dumps one to two feet snow on the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, here's a look at some of the updates at AARoads this week. Contributor Peter Johnson sent in some photos he took this week of Wisconsin 172, which we combined with some photos we took of the state trunk highway back in 2011 for a new guide. The short east-west route forms a freeway between I-41 and [...]

WV-OH-KY Trip – Day 6 (Columbia, SC to Montgomery, AL)

Started the final day of the trip in Cayce, South Carolina. Began by poking around downtown Columbia briefly before heading west to Saluda, SC and Athens, GA. Ended up back in Atlanta and took Interstate 20 west to Birmingham and then south on I-65. Counter-intuitive shield assembly posted for South Carolina 12 along U.S. 21-176-321 (Huger Street) northbound in Columbia. South Carolina 12 follows a one-way street [...]

Wintry Mix

This view looks at a snowy scene on South Carolina's Highway 11. The route runs along the top of the state near the borders with North Carolina and Georgia. It is perhaps best known as the Cherokee Foothills National Scenic Highway, and offers great views of the surrounding hills and mountains. The author was in South Carolina this weekend, and notes that the state's new route markers [...]

South Carolina’s new highway signs

They are appearing in a town near you! We found a few instances of the new highway sign this weekend including a South Carolina 303 shield in Walterboro and several South Carolina 6 shields in Moncks Corner. It appears that the standard 3di-width shield will be used as the default for all shields, as every shield for South Carolina 6 and South Carolina 6 Truck used [...]

Button Copy lives on the Sumter bypass

Low and behold there is some classic button copy left in South Carolina, and it is found on the U.S. 76 & 378 freeway bypass of Sumter. While button copy was erased from the Interstate system, the last signs coming down on Interstate 585 in Spartanburg in 2006, the freeway at Sumter provides a look at much older signing practices within the Palmetto State. The following photos from May 29, [...]

Interstate 95 Coverage expanded

Over the last few weeks I've taken time to fill in some of the gaps and otherwise expand our coverage of Interstate 95 from Savannah, Georgia north to the Virginia State line, and from New Haven, Connecticut to the Rhode Island state line as part over an overall effort to cover the freeway on AARoads. Carter documented much of Interstate 95 in the Carolinas during Summer of 2005 and his [...]
