Revive 755:

--- Quote from: Tom958 on June 16, 2023, 06:12:42 PM ---The Streetview for US 72 at MS 7 is from this month and shows construction underway for the new roundabout (WTF?) there. I haven't seen anything online about it, but a roundabout strikes me as an odd choice on a highway with a 100-foot median.

Particularly for this rural location - many other states probably would have started with a J-turn.  The roundabout would be harder to replace with an interchange if the corridor gets upgraded some year.

With I-22 nearby and the Atlanta-Huntsville-Memphis interstate corridor dead, it seems exceptionally unlikely US 72 will need to be upgraded anytime in the future, especially on this stretch; traffic really only picks up a bit east of Corinth.

As I was trying to find out whether or not the old Louisville and Nashville Depot in Ocean Springs, Mississippi still exists, I spotted these odd signs at every traffic signal along US 90 within the state.

Those traffic signal numbers have been there for years and help with local directions.  With three counties and several cities along the coast street names can be duplicated, so using numbers on the signals can be a big help -- especially in the casino areas with a lot of visitors from outside the Coast area.  The numbers increase from west to east and go up to around 70 or so if I remember right -- it's been a while since I've been to the Pascagoula end of the highway.
