Noticed a few days ago that the exit for 3rd Street off US 101 north in San Francisco is now mistakenly labeled on the overhead sign as "Exit 492B" and not 429B (the correct number on the gore point sign).

--- Quote from: moabdave on January 10, 2023, 12:22:03 AM ---Does anybody here know of a published list of common places where Caltrans places chain control/winter weather closure check points? For example, on I-80 Eastbound I usually see on the Caltrans road reports if control is in place it's either at Applegate, Cisco Grove or Kingvale; I-80 westbound is almost always at either Truckee or Mogul (just across the state line in Nevada). Is there a published list of the normal places where such control checkpoints are located?

Best bet is the a Caltrans Quick Map for what’s going on real time.  In theory CHP could put a chain control checkpoint anywhere they wanted.

That looks like the green stencil layer is delaminating, and exposing more of the solid white layer underneath. That happens a lot. You'd think 3M would have mastered that decades ago, or perhaps it's just that the sign makers aren't following the directions.

Max Rockatansky:
The city of Fresno uses a similarly cheap vinyl which delaminates quickly.  Whatever vinyl Caltrans is using tends to hold up much better to UV and heat exposure.  Caltrans is also using a single vinyl sheet on the current spec highway spades, the previous generation had an issues where the numbers would begin to peel off.
