Didn't intend to imply that they didn't exist (just that I had never seen any myself), but I'm just going to show myself out before I make myself look any dumber.

That they exist is one thing.  Whether they're signed (and thus visible in the field) or not is another story.

My initial reaction was that there may not be many in St. Louis County because the county seems to throw a county route shield on practically every cowpath.

I'm sorry, but what the heck is an "oil iggie"? And if it's misspelled, what the heck is it talking about?

The ramp from EB 76 to NB 25 in Denver, is long enough to where it SHOULD have a number.. the thing has its own milemarkers.
The marker in question:

I like that they put the state name on the shields even though they can't possibly be read from a car :)

She and HBO put together an excellent bio on her life. I highly recommend it. Her life with Ike was even more a living hell than I had previously heard. So glad she had all the success she had. An amazing talent.

Don't feel bad--I found UT roads in St. Louis County only because the plans for the SP 8821-353 sign replacement furnished a cheat sheet.  MnDOT signing contracts with control sections of 88XX tend to be districtwide jobs, but in this case, the focus route is US 53 in St. Louis and Koochiching Counties.  In many cases, perhaps most, UT roads will be signed far more conspicuously from US 53 than is currently the case.

Here's an example:

Google Maps not only fails to show Jacobs Road as UT 8146; it also misleadingly labels it as CR 519.  StreetView imagery (the latest of which dates from November 2015) shows a UT 8146 shield on Jacobs Road itself but no existing signing on US 53 referencing a UT route.

I don't know the current status of construction on SP 8821-353.

NCDOT has awarded a contract for rehabilitation of I-40 between the I-26 and US 25 interchanges south of Asheville. This section includes the bridges over the French Broad River. Lane closures are to be “mostly” at night.

The new expressway (not a freeway, and only an extension of the bypass) between Touchet and Walla Walla will open later today.


It looks like the west end of this new expressway is the third alignment for US-12, with Byrnes Rd being the original one along the railroad tracks.

From the USGS topos, it doesn't seem that Byrnes Road was ever part of US 12. Maybe part of the predecessor IEH, but definitely not US 12.

It's been a while:

2 correct routes, extra points if you guess both correctly.

The state is Virginia.
