Old TxDOT Black/white Object Marker Still in use
« on: February 02, 2014, 08:03:47 PM »

Check this out... this location appears to still be within state maintenance.

https://maps.google.com/?ll=33.815096,-98.221335&spn=0.000036,0.024912&t=h&z=16&layer=c&cbll=33.815074,-98.221199&panoid=kSBZapoA2nw2XK6trXMX-g&cbp=12,57.74,,1,3.16

Also of interest, a short distance down the old highway is an unnecessary to way traffic sign. I'm guessing maybe the divided highway once ended near here before this section was bypassed, and whomever now maintains the old road kept replacing he two way traffic sign instead of removing it.

I've seen a few in Missouri, as well.
