Photos from five-state Memorial Day weekend trip
« on: June 02, 2021, 01:47:13 PM »

Got my pictures uploaded, ahead of some older ones, because there's some good stuff in these albums.

Day 1, includes some shots of the new US 35 construction in West Virginia

Day 2, includes the new East Beckley Bypass; the new section of the Coalfields Expressway; the 2021 versions of the interesting Bluefield signage (some of the signs out near US 460 and SR 720 have been replaced since my last visit); and all the cutouts and other old signage still hanging on in Tazewell.

Day 3, which includes the only two remaining cutout/old route marker assemblies in Big Stone Gap.

What's with the heavy black border on some of these new WV state route shields?  I also saw it a few years ago along a new section of US-35.

Looking over pictures from five years ago, it seems a few of the cutout assemblies in Tazewell have been removed, including the one where westbound VA 61 turns onto Riverside Drive, and a few US 19/460 assemblies in downtown Tazewell. They're pictured in this album but not in the most recent one:

Bluefield pics from that same trip showing some of the signage that has since been replaced out near the SR 720/US 460 interchange (signed for VA 102 from US 460), and also a funky cutout VA 102 sign that's no longer there:
