My god, dude....explain what we are looking at.

It's in California, and to my eyes it looks like any other light in California...?  :spin:

It isn't gone.  I'm using it right now.

But they have likely quit updating it.

External tabs sighted on Friday on US 101 northbound in the Santa Barbara area, when me and my friend drove up from Orange County back home to the Bay:

I don't think there is any official definition for what qualifies as a major or minor Interstate highway. If a bad accident or other serious event happens on any 2-digit Interstate the press is likely to refer to the route as a "major" Interstate highway.

Generally, the one or two digit routes that end in "0" or "5" are legitimately major Interstate highways. Then there are others which either run long distances and/or carry large amounts of traffic. I-94 qualifies as a major Interstate. I think I-81 through Virginia and up into Pennsylvania is a very important route. The same goes for I-44 between St Louis and Oklahoma City.

The Cape Fear Memorial Bridge, opened in 1969, is the iconic lifeblood of Wilmington, North Carolina.  It is also the biggest traffic headache and infrastructure concern of the growing southeastern North Carolina city.

While different proposals to replace or bypass are being considered, debated, rejected, and rejuvenated, the aging bridge carries over 60,000 vehicles a day and that number is growing.

A history of this unique bridge and a look at its future.

Removing I-10 on the edge of Downtown New Orleans would be an especially stupid idea. The intersection with I-10, Claiborne Ave (US-90) and the Ponchatrain Expressway (Bus US-90) is a pretty major intersection. The Superdome is right there and the Smoothie King arena is next door. A hell of a lot of traffic moves in and out of the downtown area and the French Quarter. Reducing I-10 to one or two at-grade boulevards with a shit-ton of traffic signals would plunge the downtown area into pure hell for motorists. Traffic is already bad enough as it is. No freeway would make it much worse. Let's also not forget the North Claiborne Ave portion of I-10, the one most likely to be torn down by New Urbanists, runs through a not so safe area of town. How many people want to be stuck waiting at traffic signals there?

Also, New Orleans doesn't exactly have the greatest mass transit system serving that region. There is a limited street car line serving only a small portion of the city. And there is city buses. How many people truthfully enjoy commuting by using the bus?

Two minor errors along the way from Québec City to my hometown.

First, a missing up arrow for TCH 1 somewhere east of Crapaud, PE:

Then, a grammar error heading to the Confederation Bridge on TCH 16 EB (should be Restrictions relatives):
