On I-90 westbound, after milepost 78, both of these posts with the speed limit signs were fixed recently (last month or two), which I mentioned previously in this thread, and now the one on the left is already down again. How rude. :c

On Interstate 90 eastbound, before Exit 53, the Snoqualmie Pass elevation sign needs to be repaired/replaced: https://goo.gl/maps/q2F9u8ortzmw3Jya9 It was down in the 2021 capture, so whatever happened was sometime after that 2019 capture. You can see one of the posts on the ground here, with what looks to be part of a sign attached to it: https://goo.gl/maps/VacNAoz9URqa2yoKA

The westbound elevation sign needs to be replaced as well, but even looking at earlier Google Maps captures, I can't tell where it's supposed to be at. I even tried looking for it farther east where you first crest the hill going westbound.

Quote from: Amaury on June 29, 2023, 05:55:15 PMOn Interstate 90 eastbound, just before milepost and Exit 115, this Tourist Activities sign is broken. This happened sometime between April 12, 2022, and April 19, 2022, as it was still standing on my drive on the former date, but was broken when I passed through there again on my next drive on the latter date.



This is when it was still standing: https://goo.gl/maps/gAUk9pCcLPUSqxT98 However, it wasn't filled like that and was just a blank sign with only the Tourist Activities part, like on the westbound side: https://goo.gl/maps/NZR5HoeDJSy5PpjP6

Both of these are fixed. The latter one is now "Food Next Right," and the one on the westbound side before the exit was changed to match.

On Interstate 90 westbound after milepost 140, this big yellow sign for trucks on the left needs to be repaired: https://goo.gl/maps/8A181bYwvzUwWtj47

You can see it laying on the ground in the latest capture: https://goo.gl/maps/vWPMaJbMFuUt2YgZA It was like that in the 2022 capture as well.

On Interstate 90 westbound after milepost 140, just a bit father up, the sign on the left for the grade is on the ground again: https://goo.gl/maps/MPZUe8WatBh7T9oe9

When it was still standing: https://goo.gl/maps/mSoVt9ePW8h3mvLy7

Fun fact: Those two signs used to be a bit farther back where that big yellow sign currently is.

On Interstate 82 eastbound before Exit 30, there was a crash sometime after June 28, the last time I went by the area, and everything was fine then.

Take note of what things look like here:



Now, I just drove down there today to check out the fire damage from a fire yesterday that burned in the area–not in the direct area, but in the county. After milepost 20 on eastbound I-82, there's an area that's all black. I went to turn around at Exit 30, and what do I see?









Now, I didn't read about whatever crash in the news, I just stumbled upon it today when I drove down there, but I have a high suspicion that it was caused by a drunk driver.  :banghead:

Quote from: Amaury on May 09, 2023, 08:33:29 PMThis control city sign on US Route 97 northbound just before milepost 34:

Went down to Portland and back today, and this is fixed. It's also on those holed metal posts now instead, like this: https://goo.gl/maps/7AfyFQdX8GechyT38

Funny part was that on the way down there, it was still needing repairs, and it was fixed when I came back through the area at the base of Satus Pass on the north side of the summit. I did see DOT vehicles in the pullout here heading south: https://goo.gl/maps/AmqL4UTret2bHEgdA There's also been a paving project going in the area the last few weeks, and given it was obvious, there's no they could have missed it while working on the road. I didn't check to see if they fixed the one on the southbound side, at the end of the pullout seen in the link earlier in this paragraph, where the "d" in Goldendale is virtually non-existent.

EDIT: Checked my video. Heading south the other sign was already fixed. :)

Quote from: Amaury on February 14, 2023, 02:43:56 AM17) and 18) In Benton City, Washington (I-82 Exit 96), this big and tall sign here just before the eastbound Interstate 82 entrance needs new Interstate 82 shield stickers. You can make it out in person, but just barely. All of Google Maps' image versions have the shields faded, so I can't post a last known good image. In that same area, both "Freeway Entrance" signs for that eastbound Interstate 82 entrance need to be replaced, as they are not there. I had to go back to an image from 2012, so they fell over or were knocked over sometime between September 2012 and October 2018: https://goo.gl/maps/kDjUryB3fCVGEC1D7

I-82 shield stickers still need to be replaced, but new "Freeway Entrance" signs have been installed. Yay!

Quote from: Amaury on June 24, 2023, 01:35:39 AMComing back from Twin Falls, I managed to find this one on the ground and get a photo of it. The area around it is burned from a fire that happened at some point–don't know when–but there are no signs on the wooden post that it was burned, so I don't know what caused it to break.


This one is fixed.

The light pole and other sign still need repairs, but this one is fixed already.

On Interstate 90 eastbound after Exit 136, the "Severe Side Wind Ahead" sign on the left side of the road needs to be repaired: https://goo.gl/maps/nHZgV5BoERbrHkzP6 Look closely, and you'll see it lying on the ground in the median.

It's easier to see from the westbound lanes: https://goo.gl/maps/TKe2DFyMpL4UzwQLA

On Interstate 90 eastbound and westbound, milepost 139 needs to be replaced in both directions.

Eastbound with the milepost there: https://goo.gl/maps/mUqN3f4BbJaS6RCX7
Westbound with the milepost there: https://goo.gl/maps/MfU7kP5199UT46iN8

Eastbound currently: https://goo.gl/maps/PTV8wKcvwP5xF1Db8
Westbound currently: https://goo.gl/maps/ptFTDFoJZfmFBWnH8 (You can see the metal post where the mile marker was attached is still standing, so westbound side just needs the mile marker replaced, not the entire post.)

Eastbound side was broken or whatever sometime between the June 2019 and November 2021 captures, with the milepost being there in the former, but not the latter. Westbound side was broken or whatever sometime between the October 2022 and June 2023 captures, with the milepost being there in the former, but not the latter.

On Interstate 90 eastbound, milepost 141 needs to be replaced: https://goo.gl/maps/vQpKmmJckxsrDeb29

Currently with it not there: https://goo.gl/maps/MUG2UXEwYbn2dbtg8

On Interstate 90 eastbound and westbound at milepost 143, the mile markers need to be replaced in both directions. The metal posts are still standing.

Eastbound with the mile marker there: https://goo.gl/maps/3QJ874sRnp3c24ji7
Westbound with the mile marker there: https://goo.gl/maps/UAho9LwiYEK3hfb56

I note also that on the westbound side, the post with the speed limit signs needs to be replaced as well.

Eastbound currently: https://goo.gl/maps/qEVVxescmCEBwCSMA
Westbound currently: https://goo.gl/maps/HgXhB55U42et9zpD7

On Interstate 90 eastbound and westbound, milepost 144 needs to be replaced in both directions.

Eastbound with the milepost there: https://goo.gl/maps/ueKnmpBWw33ojpwr7

I note also that on the eastbound side, the merge ahead sign for the entrance ramp at Exit 143 needs to be replaced as well. I will also note that in the 2018 capture, the last time milepost 144 was still standing on the eastbound side, the numbers were hardly visible, like the white text fell off and just left the "primer base," if you will.

Westbound with the milepost there: https://goo.gl/maps/qG6yLpu3Cu654HAe6

Eastbound currently: https://goo.gl/maps/UaSw6X69K9cqqWPw5
Westbound currently: https://goo.gl/maps/bqi3cLnLK3SdegM2A

On Interstate 90 westbound, before Exit 137, the "Severe Side Wind Ahead" for two miles sign is laying on the ground and needs to be repaired: https://goo.gl/maps/7vwBVYjL49WT3beY8

When it was still standing: https://goo.gl/maps/EYpjGumoGEi943aE8

I do note that the shoulder was closed there today, so I couldn't pull over to take a personal photo like I was planning, and I saw a front loader with a scoop there, so I wonder if they were fixing it.

On Interstate 90 westbound, just a bit farther up from that severe side wind sign, the overhead sign for Exit 137 needs to be repaired: https://goo.gl/maps/Yhv48QW9TPBU5AXL7

When it wasn't missing pieces: https://goo.gl/maps/NopPLQiEnMqrKFmH9

It was only missing one panel instead of two before, as seen here: https://goo.gl/maps/qCyxBv43Pk7dvzKC7 But recently the panel with the "137" and "TO" also fell off.

This is also not the first time this sign has needed repairs. See here in September 2008: https://goo.gl/maps/aKriJgCMPgoDznabA

On Interstate 90 westbound, at milepost 138, milepost 138 itself needs to be replaced: https://goo.gl/maps/tkkxmRhjZYnjmiYXA

Currently with it not there: https://goo.gl/maps/pfs51vpWWhgCApdB8

So, on Interstate 90 westbound, that's four mileposts in a row that need to be replaced or repaired! Wow! Mileposts 139, 138, 137, and 136. the last two of which I've already mentioned in this thread.

When it was still standing: https://goo.gl/maps/GcD24qnpZAUb1ej29

Both of these are fixed.

Quote from: Amaury on May 18, 2023, 06:00:47 PMConfirmed. :(



On westbound Interstate 90 at Exit 84, the Exit 84 sign in the gore point is lying on the ground mangled.





When it was still standing: https://goo.gl/maps/jrgnLxwp755hBs2W7

The first one with the "Entering Kittitas County" and other signs is fixed. (Bonus: The "Entering King County" sign, which was really leaning to the left was also fixed on the westbound side.)

The Exit 84 gore point sign on westbound I-90 is in the process of being fixed. There's a brand new post that's been installed, like this one: https://goo.gl/maps/Ut4rMVcd3cfe2bA5A I don't know if the exit sign itself is repairable, though, so they may be having to make a completely new sign.

This one is fixed again.

Now, I never got around to mentioning these. but there are other signs that have been repaired/replaced recently:
* Exit 45 gore point signs on Interstate 90 westbound and eastbound
* Exit 47 gore point sign on Interstate 90 westbound
* Exit 52 gore point sign on Interstate 90 eastbound
* Exit 53 gore point sign on Interstate 90 eastbound

____

On Interstate 90 eastbound, the exit gore point signs still need to be replaced for Exits 63, 78, and 101.

For Exit 78 eastbound, the post is still there and just needs the sign put on it: https://goo.gl/maps/aWmLs6gQ72CztSU4A

* Exit 63 gore point eastbound sign when it was still standing: https://goo.gl/maps/9ufvZaqB3HYkrxzx5

This is technically on Interstate 90, I guess, where Interstate 82 westbound terminates and becomes an entrance ramp for Interstate 90 westbound. This is before Interstate 90 milepost 110 or before Interstate 90 Exit 109. Flipped it over so it could be seen easier by DOT randomly driving by and fixed quicker before I get around to making another signs report.

I'm attempting a report with NJDOT, although I won't be terribly surprised if they cancel it or immediately claim it's resolved.

This portable VMS sign on 295 South at MP 24.1 has been here since 2022. It simply reads 'Road Work Ahead', blinks off then the message again: https://maps.app.goo.gl/5jKKtNFkBiZwaSeY9 . There's no road work south of this location. It's questionable if there is ever any road work attributable to the sign. The only road work on 295 since the sign has been located here was an ongoing project at Exit 4, about 20 miles to the south that didn't cause any congestion. There's no road work on the ramps or exits either south of here. So whoever placed a sign here either did it accidentally, or maybe it was stolen and dropped there. Who knows.

The NJDOT reporting page doesn't want stories like this, so I had to summarize it onto 200 characters. I'll see if they actually look onto it.

And as I suspected. I received an automated email at 4:04pm stating "This is to notify that your problem request has been completed. Thank you. Regards, New Jersey Department of Transportation Motorist Assistance".

My original notice was received at 12:46pm.  Took all of 3 hours and 18 minutes to close the ticket, without any explanation or acknowledgement of what I mentioned.  When I drove by the area at 5:14pm, the sign was still there.

Unfortunately, this has been how NJDOT operates over the past few years.  Submit a problem request; have it immediately closed.  The only one they took seriously was a downed Stop Sign.  It had been knocked down a few days prior.  After my submission, it was fixed same day.  Otherwise, if it's a speed limit sign, missing directional/route sign, or like in this case, a concern about a sign that has been there for about 9 months with no road work occurring, they close the ticket and wipe their hands free of the issue.

On Interstate 82 westbound after milepost 28, the sign saying that SR 821 is closed to commercial trucks May 15—September 15 needs repairs. Looking back at my videos, it was still standing on my drive to Haines, Oregon, on November 29, 2022, and it was lying on the ground on my drive to Newberg, Oregon, on December 20, 2022. So, it fell sometime between those dates.

You mentioned responses are automated. I wonder if it's not an actual human closing the ticket, but an AI algorithm that looks for certain parameters in the message with regard to urgency and other things, and if a certain amount of those parameters are "false," them it automatically closes the ticket. Similar to YouTube's algorithm for copyright music being found in videos being automatic, which is sometimes wrong. I don't know, though, especially since I don't live there. Just a guess.

I don't know how, but the overhead sign for Exit 63 being ahead in one mile on Interstate 90 westbound was somehow very recently damaged. It was just fine the other day: https://goo.gl/maps/tHJ4EfsbZ7B3Yvk46



It's just before milepost 65. And while writing this, I also discovered that just a few feet up, the travel information sign, which also has mile marker 65 attached to it, is lying on the ground.

Standing: https://goo.gl/maps/sfjFUfpo5AAuGVwB7

Looks like it was already leaning backward in that last capture of it still standing.

So this is an interesting development. I came home from a trip around 10pm Monday night. The sign was gone! So I guess NJDOT did investigate it and figured out whose portable VMS unit it was.

The closure of the report shouldn't have occurred when it did (IMO) but it must've at least been sent to the right department to be taken care of.

I finally reported it on an NDOT online service request form in late May 2023, and it had been repaired within less than two weeks.

That's awesome!

There was a similar incident here in my state last week on the 23rd, though it's not a sign I've reported. A semi going westbound on Interstate 82 took Exit 96 for Benton City too fast and couldn't make the roundabout. I don't know how, but it only managed to take out the crosswalk sign on the left, the one with the right-pointing arrow: https://goo.gl/maps/xcZMm77LPMncoLVq5

There are cones around where the sign was, so since WSDOT helped clean up the mess, they obviously know about it.

When it was still standing: https://goo.gl/maps/1y9U9yFg3jpuPWEq8 I flipped it over and turned it around so I could take a good photo of it, but I don't know how it got all the way by the post with the white sign. However, while it's a bit past it, where it is on the ground now lines up a little better with the eastbound one that's still up, as the gap is smaller.

Repaired. :)

Light pole is repaired now. Now it's just the big sign that says Exit 30 is right there that needs to be repaired.

Quote from: Amaury on February 14, 2023, 02:43:56 AM7) On eastbound Interstate 90 after milepost 55, this sign was completely mangled sometime in the 2021—22 winter: https://goo.gl/maps/iqu1DT51xmqfQLP7A It's completely gone now. Either that or a lot of it fell over on the ground completely, as you can see one of the posts there: https://goo.gl/maps/noTXJDPrZGRUaBep8

22) On eastbound Interstate 90 after milepost 49, the "Food Next Right" sign is missing its panel on the left side.

25) At the western terminus of Washington State Route 906, where eastbound Interstate 90 Exit 52 is, the Tourist Activities sign needs some attention.

30) On Interstate 82 eastbound, at the View Point, two of the arrow signs and their posts for the curve look to have been crashed into.

All of these are repaired.
