This one near Glen Burnie, Maryland should be Maryland Route 3 Business. Mainline Route 3 ends about five miles to the south and is disconnected from MD-3 Business.

They Should've put 2 Plaques,One for the Buissness Plate,And the other for the JCT Sign.

This button copy sign [street view link] has apparently been replaced recently.  The replacement has an OH 71 shield.  It can be seen from the freeway if you're looking at the right moment.

On the subject of things guiding you to I-71,

Before
After
Since when was US 1 in Nova Scotia?

That's (one of) their shields. That's not US 1. The error is with the cardinal direction.
That is ACTUALLY A Nova Scotia TRUNK HIGHWAY! :-D

Found this on I-10 In New Orleans. https://www.google.com/maps/@29.9961126,-90.0459636,3a,39.3y,211.52h,93.65t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1snUUqaQSrnusIj6mv-A56jw!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo1.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DnUUqaQSrnusIj6mv-A56jw%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dsearch.TACTILE.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D96%26h%3D64%26yaw%3D222.7441%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656

Where's the error?

"WEST" without a corresponding shield.

Not to mention squeezing 610 onto a 2-di shield.

That's more of a design error, since the information is still correct. I do see 2di shields with 3di numbers on them often enough in Washington. Here's a couple examples:

https://goo.gl/c8Ynif

https://goo.gl/K9PSKA

As I've often stated, I hate the wide markers and prefer the square (or equivalent) ones such as this.
That's just an old sign.  The I-10 shield fell off.  It may have even been blown off during one of the hurricanes and never was replaced.

This Monstrosity in Fargo on an I-29 Exit Ramp. https://www.google.com/maps/@46.8324795,-96.8377222,3a,26.8y,57.65h,93.19t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sMZ8s5SddEXw-m7K2yQo8Iw!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo3.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DMZ8s5SddEXw-m7K2yQo8Iw%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dsearch.TACTILE.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D96%26h%3D64%26yaw%3D62.58203%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656

I think it's time for someone to step away from the keyboard. Your link shows a random traffic light.

I think he means the non-erroneous No Right Turn arrow, which presumably means that traffic on 32nd Ave should avoid heading the wrong way down the ramp to I-29.

Take a deep breath and calm down, ThatTenneseeRoadgeek. The random SHOUTING isn't helping anyone.

Oh, I see. I was mostly away from the site for a few days and didn't see the posts when I returned. My bad.

Upon reading, I do find the posts rather funny. I'm not easily bothered by some things.

The contractor goofed on the SB US 17 shield.  Intersection of Main Street at Vine Street. Both routes turn right from Main to Vine to form a brief concurrency with US 192.

Intersection was just recently redone here and new signage on SB Main (US 17, 92, and 441) and WB Vine (US 192).

Extraneous apostrophe on road sign by me, on Flickr

Oop's!

Definitely belongs in the Worst thread.
  • Apostrophe
  • Compressed Helvetica font
  • Non-MUTCD arrow
  • Black on white, not white on green
  • On same post as STOP sign
  • Sign on back of post hides the octagon shape of STOP sign

I fully concur.  This is a good candidate for the "worst of" thread.  No way in hell this should've escaped the sign shop.

This sign is at the exit to Lowell General Hospital, Saints Campus, Lowell, MA.  Very likely it is not under state or municipal jurisdiction but rather a sign that the hospital put up.  Private signs tend to not have such good standards.

Low standard's, maybe, but they should still know where to put their apostrophe's.
