Oldest Vestigial Signs Posted in the Field for Routes No Longer What is Posted

<< < (2/11) > >>

I'm not sure how old this sign ( is in Oxnard, CA on Vineyard Ave (former CA 232) identifying the upcoming intersection as "Oxnard Blvd / State Rt. 1", but CA 1 has been rerouted and relinquished within Oxnard.  There's other assorted signage on the old CA 1 route  (including a BGS as you turn from PCH onto Oxnard Blvd), but none of it looks significantly old.

Still there, M3100 has recent photos. 

There’s a VA 170 shield at a closed gate on Norfolk Naval Base. The road has been I-564 for some time.

I remember at one time CA-141 was well signed in Vallejo up to the early 1990's until they were removed for good.
Also at one point Benicia had CA-21 green out signs on the ramps to I-680 North until those signs are removed to make way for the new northbound Benicia Bridge.

That route is Business 15 (officially known as KY 15X, and there is at least one contractor-installed sign to that effect) so most of those signs through downtown just never had the "Business" banner added.

The same is true in downtown Hazard.
