Found it!

Other than that Richmond example, the closest thing I've seen in the suburbs is this double left turn where you have to yield to pedestrians: https://www.google.com/maps/@49.2578379,-123.1843362,3a,75y,84.23h,87.65t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sTZSRt0P3pMAvMerqOdhHZg!2e0!5s20170501T000000!7i13312!8i6656

Edit: Juuuuust found this right near the example I posted. I think Richmond's probably your best bet for finding more of these:

There is another one in Vancouver somewhere (with an option lane unfortunately), but I'm not sure exactly which intersection. I'll post when I find it.

Now that you mention it, I do feel like I'm missing something from that list. Are you thinking somewhere downtown, or outside downtown but within city limits? Never would have guessed that anyone besides the City of Vancouver would have the balls to install a double permissive left, but Richmond clearly has proved me wrong. I usually focus my search for these things in urban areas, but there could be some in suburban areas too.

I have tickets reserved in the earliest three slots, but I'm going to try and join the media scruff at the ribbon-cutting before joining you guys (one of several groups I want to walk the tunnel with...going to be tough to juggle everything, but this is a challenge worth taking on).

I shall imagine that you probably know, for example, your STB guys a bit better than you know us, so I certainly wouldn't be heartbroken if you joined someone else. But I'm always up for meeting new faces! Even if only for a bite.

Nah, I almost never go to Richmond. I just happened to find it on Streetview today. I knew about the Main Street one but I never noticed the double left turns at Denman & West Georgia and Cambie & Marine before. There is another one in Vancouver somewhere (with an option lane unfortunately), but I'm not sure exactly which intersection. I'll post when I find it.

Edit: Lol classic Richmond

There is traffic that transits the Madison area between US 151 to the northeast and US 151 to the southwest and it is difficult to describe the 'best' routing (the interstate and the Beltline) to some of those drivers, who are unfamiliar with the area.  This is very similar to what the situation WRT US 41 through Milwaukee County was for travelers between Chicagoland and the Fox Valley (Appleton, Oshkosh, etc) before I-41 was marked.  For that reason, I would reroute US 151 to follow that all-freeway routing and give the current through town route a new number.

As for US 141, I'd decommission it south of the Abrams interchange (US 41 split north of metro Green Bay).

And while we're at it, decommission highway 29's routing along US 141 and give the section east of Green Bay a new number! I honestly think the routing of US 141 in Green Bay should become a state highway and WIS 29 should end at Monroe Ave.

This one in Tucson, AZ is pretty gross:
https://www.google.com/maps/@32.1900319,-110.90553,3a,49.8y,97.4h,86.01t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1srvtl6c8N7DzSZyx8Pl-a0g!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

Jesus, no kidding. All that room and that was the best setup they could come up with? Tucson normally has my admiration, but they lost a tiny bit here.

Knowing Arizona drivers, I get the feeling that stop sign is barely acknowledged.

I found one in Richmond, BC:

https://www.google.com/maps/@49.170125,-123.1592228,3a,41y,84.91h,88.83t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1szDZOotchBd0mtzZX2Ngj-w!2e0!7i16384!8i8192

Oh shit, nice find! Cannot believe I didn't know about that one. Your drive through there often?

That now brings BC's total back to four. The other three are Cambie at Marine Drive, Denman at West Georgia, and Main at the Dunsmuir Viaduct. Pacific at Burrard once had it until removal a short time ago. The Richmond example, though, is the coolest so far as it doesn't involve option lanes.

Edit: you know you're in Richmond when a Lambo just casually strolls through: https://goo.gl/vPed2y
