Tom958:
Something I stumbled upon a while back: This is a good candidate for peak Indiana. One type of metal guardrail on the bridge, a different type of metal bridge guardrail ground-mounted on the approaches, and, if you pivot to the right, standard W beam guardrail.

It's gone now. The bridge was rebuilt sometime between 2013 and 2018, with the superstructure being replaced but the bents remaining, and the old metal guardrails didn't survive.

Not sure what that type of gaurdrail is called but it's very obsolete now! W-beam and thrie beam are the only 2 you see now.  :-D

Great Lakes Roads:
I saw sign goofs on Indiana SR 2 southwest of Valparaiso in a newly-built roundabout at Heavilin Road. They have circular shields, which easily gave me vibes from Delaware!

The one looks like a variation of Wyoming rail. 

EB I-70 used to have a somewhat similar guardrail transitions for the Wabash River Bridge.

Illinois used to at least occasionally use the W-beam with the flat (box?) beam beneath it as well.

There are some circular SR 14 shields on traffic lights east of I-69 on Illinois Rd, used as lane references. Not the first time this has happened in Indiana.
