CA 229 from today:

35 by Max Rockatansky, on Flickr

I have one from CA 58 also but it really needs to be cleaned up with the blur in the picture.  I have a ton of these in general, I'll probably start linking some of them over now and then.

Boy do I have lots of these to post; they're my favorite thing to photograph. Here's six of them to start with.

East END of MN-5 in Stillwater, which existed from 1982/83 to 2015. Taken June 2015.



Present east END of MN-5, at MN-120 on the Maplewood/Oakdale boundary. Taken July 2016.



Northeast END of MN-23 at I-35 in Duluth. Taken May 2016.



South END of MN-93 at MN-112 in Le Sueur. Taken August 2014.



Old south END MN-120, posted before the I-94 interchange. Taken May 2011.



Current south END MN-120, posted after the I-94 interchange. Taken June 2015.

Funny thing about that I-394 sign is it's not the actual end of the route, despite the signage.

Just my luck, the wiper began its cycle right when my wife snapped the picture. Taken last May on the new Goldsboro Bypass.

Interstate shields are too pointy.

Yeah, that whole thing is pretty weird. The panel on the left says South/West 35/80 but then doesn't give any directions, as if you're already on those routes, and the panel on the right gives an angled arrow even though it's a 90 degree right turn to get onto the freeway.

Edit: bonus picture, the second, independent END IA-28 marker that is posted further up, right before the south set of ramps. Taken December 2016.

You know, when looked through this thread, I thought the only END signs I had were the ones used at dead end streets in New York City, like on 193rd Street on the north side of Hollis LIRR station or East 105th Street at the eponymous L train station. Then I checked, and I was reminded of this one;

Now I'm going to go back to Minnesota, but for one very specific example: MN-101, or rather, the fragments of MN-101 in Carver County and what has now become CR-101 in Hennepin, Scott, and parts of Carver County. MN-101 was supposed to be eliminated south of I-94 back in 1988 (except for the part between US-169 and MN-13, which remains as an unsigned state highway), and while Hennepin and Scott Counties took the road, Carver refused, initially. Upgrades to the route have been occurring slowly and these upgraded portions have become Carver County road 101. The two portions of the road that remain two-lane road are still marked as MN-101, one in the northern part of the county, and one in the southern part.

This is the north END of the northern remaining Carver County segment, at the Carver/Hennepin County line. Taken May 2014.

NB END MN-101:


SB END CR-101:


There is no marker at the south end of the northern segment—the route just vanishes once it reaches MN-5. Likewise, for the southern segment, there is no END marker at the northern terminus; however, the signal at the intersection with Pioneer Trail does show the change in jurisdiction.

For the south end of the southern segment, there is an END marker posted, which is at Flying Cloud Drive/CR-61/former US-212. Taken July 2016.



That intersection was not always the southern terminus of the southern segment. Before 2015, when the highway was reconstructed across the Minnesota River and its floodplain, MN-101 went all the way to the Carver/Scott county line. Both taken May 2014.

SB END MN-101:


NB END Scott CR-101:


Finally, Scott County has the other end of CR-101 doubly marked with END markers at the point at which it resumes being an unmarked state highway. Taken May 2014.

That's an unnecessary "SOUTH" banner, isn't it?

Peel RR 19 near the 401 and 407 in Mississauga, ON


Waterloo RR 22 at the border with Wellington County (in Ontario)

And if we include FIN signs... :colorful:

Yet more from me, this time from Minnesota.

West and east ends, respectively, of the former MN-232 (pictures taken August 2011, route was turned back to Aitkin County in April 2012). It is now an extension of CR-3.





West and east ends, respectively, of MN-244, a route due to be turned back at pretty much any time now. It's been on the elimination list for many years.





I'll conclude this post with the south and north ends, respectively, of MN-107.
