While looking for SR 100 shields in Street View though Andalusia, I found some AL 15 shields; normally it's a hidden route number for US 29. This most certainly the old routing of US 29 through Andalusia.

Posted at Sanford Road (AL 100) on Three Notch Road
Posted on east-facing AL 55 at Stanley Avenue
Posted on southbound AL 55 (Stanley Road) as a concurrency (?)
Stanley Road at Three Notch, with "To US 29" posted alongside, and a AL 15 South shield on the other side of the road.

Sure enough, it's on the ALDOT Covington County Milepost map. SR 100 remains unposted.

I wonder what is causing ALDOT to post more of these unsigned state routes? AL 4 in Birmingham, and AL 15 in Andalusia.


Why is Baldwin CR-27 still posted with AL-181 at the south terminus with US-98? Was this a ďlet it stay until the new number becomes standardĒ and they forgot to take it down? I know CR-27 still exists north of US-31 but is it still secret co-signed with AL-181?

On a related note, AL-181 got new pavement with slightly wider lanes from the future end of the 4 lane section south of AL-104 down to at least CR-44 so I guess the expansion of AL-181 will cease for the foreseeable future. The current 4 lane project is classic ALDOT taking forever to complete. I think the new Publix at AL-104 is long finished but you canít get to into it along AL-181 due to construction so it still hasnít opened.

Looks like a 1.5 mile section of the new US-98 opened to traffic a few days ago between Newburn Road and Lott Road as per this tweet from the ALDOT Southwest Region Twitter: Hi!  Yes a small 1.5 mile portion has opened to traffic between Newburn Road( Schillinger Road) and SR 217 Lott Road!— ALDOT Southwest Region (@ALDOT_SW_Region) December 22, 2022

. As for the rest of the 2-lane new US-98 it should open by early 2024: All remaining projects not yet completed have been let and are under construction.

Traveling from Orlando to Birmingham today, I noticed these signs at the US-280/US-231/AL-21 interchange in Sylacauga. My pic today didnít come out good so street view it is

I assume the plastered dual shields were from a contractor error as the sign originally just had AL-21 on it. US-231 has always headed south to Montgomery from US-280 at this point correct?
