Freeway exit signs on two-lane roads
« on: January 08, 2022, 02:40:53 AM »

https://www.google.com/maps/@45.0991415,-123.3489137,3a,75y,260.85h,84.15t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sLvSVYxhp5zufY3BGMmoOdg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

The scene in the linked Street View is rather weird, seeing that freeway sign where it is, along Oregon Route 18 between McMinnville and Sheridan. Anyway, where else throughout the country have you seen a freeway exit sign along a two-lane road? (Bonus points if the sign has an exit tab, like the one in the linked photo.)

They are actually kind of common in Oregon.  From what I recall there was a couple on US 26/Sunset Highway west of Portland.

NH 16 north of US 202, although this one's still a freeway. (Although I haven't actually seen it myself.)

Here's one in California: Northern segment of US 395 southbound approaching CA 70 (although in all fairness, the road widens out to divided highway just over the hill in the background)

I would guess that California has more examples.

CA 255 has a couple considering it is a Super Two.  The junction CA 49/CA 108 in Sonora comes to mind along with much of CA 108 in town east of the junction.

Not sure if something like this would count.

There's also US 7 in Vermont, one of several Super-2 examples.

Signs like that are extremely common in Nova Scotia, although they always put the exit tab on the left without regard to the location of the "exit" (which may simply be a right turn at an at-grade intersection).

Edited to add an example (you may have to click and pan to get Street View, as the Google Maps app is acting strangely when I hit "Share"):

The Hal Rogers Parkway in Kentucky, which is (mostly) a super-2 but has had a number of at-grade intersections built over the years. And, of course, the super-2 section of the Mountain Parkway, which is in the process of being four-laned.

CA-154 has a diamond interchange with CA-192 in Santa Barbara, with the normal exit and entrance signage.

The two-lane section of UT 7 (MP 6-26) between St. George and Hurricane is fully signed with BGSs and freeway-style exits.

But somewhat more obscure is the one and only numbered exit on UT 10 just south of Castle Dale. The grade separation presumbly is to accommodate the huge number of huge coal trucks going to and from the pictured plant:

There's an even weirder grade separation on Utah 57, the cross street at that interchange, where it intersects Utah 29 several miles north of there. That one doesn't have any exit numbers or BGS type signage though.

UDOT almost as a rule does not build interchanges off of obvious freeway or expressway alignments, so these two stick out like a sore thumb. Also, UDOT has almost never built bypasses of towns on major highways (see places like Vernal, Moab, Heber, and Logan until recently)...yet SR 57 has a bypass of Orangeville, a small insignificant town that usually would never even be considered for this type of thing. Both interchanges and the bypass opened in the late 1970s, at the same time as the road from SR 29 up to the Wilberg Mine was converted from a local to collector functional class (it has since been added to 57). The likely story here is that Wilberg re-opened in 1978 after being dormant for several years, and most of the coal mined there is trucked down to that power plant right off 10.

There are 2 in a row on Texas Highway 289 at the junctions of SH 56 in Southmayd and US 82 on the outskirts of Sherman. The 2 interchanges are 3 miles apart so you can see one in the rearview mirror while approaching the other.

The CT 2A West exit to Mohegan Sun. The roadway becomes 4 lanes with a divider just after the overpass.

I think this full overhead on a two-lane section of US 6 might be the wildest one yet. This looks way too much like something you'd see on a one way carriageway. It could potentially be very dangerous especially for anyone that's color blind... not to mention the potential confusion for traffic heading the other way (driving underneath the sign facing the wrong way!)
