I liked these pavement markings at the Auke Bay Ferry Terminal (Juneau, AK):

Here's the Michigan version on the left.  Older signs say "STRAIGHT THRU".

Wisconsin does something similar to Michigan when a state or US route gets cosigned for a short distance on the interstate. This is I/US-41 with Wis 167.

This is an extremely helpful practice and it alerts people that the exit for the other direction is going to be coming up later.

It is really nice, but none of these are similar to what I originally posted, which was after the split at a trumpet interchange. There is no later for anything to come up on in that situation; you have no choice but to proceed onto I-40 east at that point.

I looked at it, and yeah, the sign is ... odd. I don't really understand all the standards and what-nots, but yeah, odd.

The intersection has an odd feel to it, very NYC-y. I almost thought it was one head per lane, but I saw the other one on the pole. NYC signals always looked... 'minimalistic' to me.
