Whoops, power went out today right after I left for a SE Arizona trip, so the website will be down until Saturday afternoon probably since I can't do anything about it until I get back. After that's fixed, expect a bunch of new pictures of southeastern Arizona highways.

I'm a big fan of the map format for the goofs/fails page, and I'm really enjoying your work. Is there any way to make the map not zoom in when you click on one of the points, though?

No, there isn't a way to toggle the zoom-in for the map points. I tested adding that with the idea that it would make it easier to see the exact location of the point, but I think it makes the experience more annoying than I intended. I've been thinking about removing the auto zoom-in for a bit and I'll probably go ahead with that now, thanks for the feedback!

Nice that AZ recognizes former US 80.

There was one US 80 Historic shield on US 60 west of Florence Junction that I observed yesterday.  This was the one on eastbound US 60 approaching Florence Junction:

I do remember US 66 shields in 2000 in many cities it served. However, am glad US 80 isnít forgotten nor is parts of US 99 in CA as some brown historic shields in the Imperial Valley where it once ran.

There is a fair assortment of Historic US 89A along AZ 89A.

Interesting that there's a Historic US 80 sign, but not one for US 89.  There's also a sign for Historic US 60/70/80/89 in front of the decayed shell of the old Buckhorn Baths complex at Main St. and Recker Rd. in Mesa.

I just discovered your site. I noticed the overhead signs on I-19 and I-10 were replaced as well; it's been within the past six weeks. There's a few other new panels along I-19 south of Green Valley, replacing the button copy signs with new versions and maintaining the metric units. I think the advance southbound panel for Tumacacori-Carmen is one of the new panels I noticed yesterday.

Sad to see old button copy signs get replaced, but it's nice that they're keeping metric.

Speaking of former US 80, coincidentally I drove down a bit of it on Saturday to the Gillespie Dam Bridge and got some pictures that are now up on my website.

Also, I got some more Broadway Curve pictures, 2 new Goofs & Fails pictures, and I updated some inaccurate SR 76 info today.
