Wide BGS on a single side mount
« on: April 06, 2019, 04:17:25 AM »

I think this is the widest BGS I've seen on a single side mount.  Seems like they could have stacked the two road names for the 2nd exit to lessen wind resistance.  Southbound California 71 a few miles north of CA 91.

For me it's probably this one on I-295 in Virginia: https://goo.gl/maps/nKmFR6BPNNk

The northbound sign for the same interchange is similar: https://goo.gl/maps/9n5sdSu5Zzp

The signs at the interchange itself look more absurd because they left-justified everything, including the route number: https://goo.gl/maps/FiAZS8QNEWz (The southbound one doesn't count for this thread because it's on a gantry rather than a single side mount, this due to another sign for the next exit to the south.)

Good grief! The left-justified sign proves to the world how much wasted green space is on that sign. Why couldn't they just shorten "Technology" down to "Tech."?

Pan the image to find the BGS. I don't know why Google sometimes does that.

I'm at my PC for a few minutes, so in the quotation above I've replaced the links in my original post (which were from the Google Maps iPad app) with links from the Street View website. Hope these work better.

I think the OP is looking for a single BGS on a side post, not multiples.
