When I went through Maine on Wikipedia a couple of years ago, the only one that was specifically "townway" for its whole length was ME 203. Other parts of Maine's system are basically under state jurisdiction for the summertime and maintained by the town during the winter.

In Quebec, MTQ doesn't take that approach at all. It will turn over route segments, or even entire routes (such as route 372 in Saguenay), to local maintenance (perhaps along with $ for local maintenance costs), but treat them as still part of Quebec's highway route system.

That's the way I prefer it to be. Rarely do routes ever get properly decommissioned in Québec, and as a result navigation is easier, except in the case where two alignments conflict (such as the aforementioned 372).

Meanwhile, I'm pretty sure VA 150 is the only freeway in Virginia that is locally maintained - the segment in the City of Richmond is maintained by the city (although it is only a freeway for a rather short and discontinuous distance).

NJ 347

That one's inconclusive, while there was a push in the legislature to remove it from the state system and other random evidence I found, I'm not sure if it was truly removed.

347, not 324...

I would argue 324 doesn't fit my original criteria, as it doesn't seem to be maintained at all.

Virginia has a fair number - any route completely within an independent city or incorporated town who does their own maintenance...

I'm sure I have left out a few...

....

Who maintains VA-120? Arlington is one of two counties that does its own maintenance, but I recall there are some exceptions to that.

Henrico County has the same arrangement as Arlington - although all local roads are maintained by the county, primary routes are under VDOT's jurisdiction. VDOT also maintains all bridges over primary, US, and interstate routes and all interchanges. There will often be interruptions in county maintenance posted with "begin/end state maintenance" signs when this happens.

Meanwhile, I'm pretty sure VA 150 is the only freeway in Virginia that is locally maintained - the segment in the City of Richmond is maintained by the city (although it is only a freeway for a rather short and discontinuous distance). I don't count VA 76 and VA 195 as they're maintained by the RMTA, which is a state-funded agency.

Thanks for the clarification. I always struggle to remember what VDOT maintains in Arlington whenever I encounter a road problem that I'd report via their website if I encountered it in Fairfax County. I haven't driven all that much in Arlington recently, though (most recent trip there was to the Pentagon on Sept. 11). Not having to commute makes a huge difference in how much I drive.
