Somebody needs to post one of the photos from Cody's meet a couple of years back showing people prone in the roadway next to the "Speed Limit 65" sign.

Wow, I looked it up and you weren't joking. Weird as hell. A four-lane divided highway that just… ends.

Kind of reminds me of this little jobbie on the north side of Salem, OH:

https://www.google.com/maps/@40.9217957,-80.8721988,5084m/data=!3m1!1e3

Although, I will say that it was part of a march larger plan, also to be named "Route 62".

This one actually pertains to many of the DOT's out there:

When pulling one's head out of one's ass, do you consult with
     (a) a proctologist ?
     (b) a psychiatrist ?
     (c) a cranial specialist ?
     (d) a factory rep for a lubricant supplier ?
     (e) all of the above ?????

Another contender would be this one which was highly controversial but is something paediatricians routinely do:

Boring state route endings

You sure?....seems like we do a lot of complaining on the Pacific Southwest board when there isn't an "end" placard at the end of a route.  Wouldn't seem so far fetched to me given the Interstate and US Route terminus threads we have out there if someone eventually did post that one.

AL 281's south end probably qualifies for that list as well.
