It's not often that you come across a random road based on an 18th Century surveying line.

Yeah, that's a quirky one. Now do Transit Road!

Googled Transit Road history quickly. There is some history to that road that I was unaware of. I might have to blog about that at some point in the future.

Good question.  Amazing to view 50-55 year old concrete pavements, guard rail, and center rail still present, and in use.

Hard to believe that Taconic/Saw Mill Pkwy. interchange is now fifty years old. I remember when it was under construction circa 1970 and even before that driving through the old Hawthorne Traffic Circle that preceded it, with my parents in 1967.

Thought you guys might get a kick out of this, a few days ago, I noticed NYSDOT installed a FREEWAY ENTRANCE sign getting on I-84 West from US 9 North in Fishkill. Or is it "the" 84 now? Lol. I noticed a similar PARKWAY ENTRANCE sign getting on the Saw Mill north from 9A near Hawthorne

LOL!.......Yeah, "the 84". I like that; very Californian, like the sign.

Weird, I'll have to show my Californian wife. ;-) I wonder if there's one going the other direction?
