How about Plattsburgh?

Was Montauk ever represented by the roadgeeking community for a road meet? How about Tupper Lake? Actually, the Buffalo meet several years ago made it much of the way down 219.

:D

If the timing is right, I am certainly in for this one.

To play devil's advocate, the current setup makes it a foolproof bypass for I-94 because it has a different number than the longer, even-more-traffic-choked I-404. I've long felt that 494 and 694 have different functions and I have never considered them to be one route.

But as I pointed out as a bypass of I-35 the motorist has to use both routes.  Not a good numbering scheme.

It's so bad that sometimes it's like you can't even find it, it's not there. :bigass:

I've long felt that 494 and 694 have different functions and I have never considered them to be one route.

I wonder how much of that is simply because we grew up and learned the two number split system. It's true that they have somewhat different functions, but I think if it had been one number from the beginning we'd be calling a hypothetical proposal to split it silly.

Had to get an early start this morning and looking out over the Gulf of St. Lawrence….there was just a hint of light at 4:45 Atlantic Time. Sunrise was at 6:10 and Sunset will be at 8:05 this evening.

Signals with an odd number of lenses are not uncommon in Canada. I believe some of the Prairie Provinces use two lens signals for protected left turns. The bottom lens is a bimodal arrow, and they top lens is a red orb.

As far as I'm aware, only Regina, Saskatchewan does that:

Saskatoon uses two red balls, a yellow ball and a green arrow like Alberta does and Texas used to in some areas:

I-480N? Never heard of it.

This makes me feel better about saying I had never heard of it either. I was sitting here debating whether I wanted to admit it or not.

I-494/694, only because there's no reason the Twin Cities Interstate beltway needs two numbers. They even share the same reference marker measurement, FFS.
and 694 has that idiotic duplex

I saw "87th Street Parkway" and knew it had to be Johnson County, Kansas. Yeah, it's in Lenexa, because of course it is.

Northbound lanes between Powell and Stark have shifted right by a few feet.
