Here's one I've never really liked.

I've often thought they should put a nice shrubbery in front of it so only people actually traveling the wrong way can see it.

If Agentsteele were still active, he would respond with this:

“Because it’s an interstate like all the rest.”

Throwback stuff.

I don't know if Lake Charles needed a drawbridge, since the original and existing Calcasieu River Bridge was already built as part of routing US 90 through the city, and ultimately became I-10. I'm thinking that I-210 was built as an alternative for trucks wanting to bypass the old bridge, access McNeese and the Port of LCH, and serve the growth areas in South Lake Charles.

 There was Interstate money to build all the way across Louisiana. They used it. There was IH money to build a  freeway and bridge in Lake Charles. While the "old" US-90  bridge/ freeway  was on the numbered I-10 route.  The "interstate"bridge and lanes were built farther south. While the new bridge was numbered as I-210, it was part of the new interstate construction that crossed Louisiana along the I-10 corridor. More bang for the 90%+ Federal Funds that were earmarked for this corridor.

Google Maps has updated their Street View coverage along the Future I-74 corridor east of Lumberton to April and May. I took some screen grabs of their views of bridge and ramp construction including a drive up and down the new ramps at Boardman which include a roundabout and new East US 74 trailblazer:

the remainder of Boardman and NC 130/NC 72 interchange related images can be found at:

Meanwhile, they also picked up construction at the future Lake Waccamaw interchange east of Whiteville, here's an image of the start of bridge construction at Chauncey Town Road:

The rest of those photos are at: https://malmeroads.net/i7374nc/i74seg18.html

In Lawrence Township I noticed that US 1 Business is still signed to follow US 206 SB at the Brunswick Circle and a reassurance shield still remains along MLK Blvd in Trenton.

The circle is part of NJ DOT jurisdiction, so why haven’t they removed these being that the route follows Strawberry Street into US 1 to terminate there? It’s almost like the department thinks that the business route just replaced the alternate in it’s entirety instead of it’s decommissioning with a truncated replacement.

The SLD and signage disagree with each other. This isn’t the only place in New Jersey this happens. I know US 9 was rerouted and signed to follow the Garden State Parkway across Great Egg Harbor Bay after the Beesley’s Point Bridge was demolished but the SLD still inventories US 9 following the roads to the removed bridge, with a gap in the route.

While the SLD is a great resource, it's not THE most absolute accurate reference document.  There are other sources found within the NJDOT website that are of better accuracy, although much more boring to read.  That said, on an overall level, the SLD is one of the better state-wide documents available to get a good overall inventory of a roadway and its various features.

I should also note there are US 9 milemarkers along Shore Road between CR 623 (where signed US 9 splits for the Garden State Parkway) and the site of the Beesley’s Point Bridge.

Yes, whatever the SLD may be wrong about, NJDOT obviously still, at least in some sense, considers the stub to be part of US 9.
the changeover happened since 2019

Not sure what you mean exactly. Signage has long directed us 9 traffic to the parkway, but the last SLD update is from 2013. https://www.state.nj.us/transportation/refdata/sldiag/pdf/00000009__-.pdf

No signs at all indicate US 9 turns right onto Roosevelt Blvd.

As of November 2022, signs on Roosevelt show US 9 heads north to Beesly Point still.


No signage has been changed as of yet.

PASS = Principal Arterial Street System


Apparently it's the only highway in the state to be signed like this. According to the Texas Highway Man, it was signed since 2014.

A new one in downtown Farmington, MI.  Brand new streetscape, and they forgot to leave some room to post the "pedestrian crossing" sign where it can be seen.  This will get worse as those new trees start filling out.

Saw this on Wurzbach in San Antonio last weekend.
