Keep? https://goo.gl/maps/SiUziBLW4cn

Locals decided to keep Cape May, rather than demolish it.

No, it leads to that famous medieval fort that defended Cape May during the Norman Conquest. :sombrero:

Obviously said KEEP LEFT and was probably covered up for the Exit 0 construction. Not sure why they'd need to do that since it was never not true, though at the time of that Street View, they did still have most of the right turn lane for NB 109 blocked off. I certainly hope they've removed it by now, though there's no newer Street View southbound.

Dear LaDOTD,

Will you please stop making 30x24 shields??? You suck at it! My hard earned tax money is being wasted on these eyesores. Please go back to 24" square GREEN shields. They are so much more durable.

Thank you,

Broke-ass Louisiana taxpayer.

A sign assembly that has a couple of interesting errors.  First the Exit 8 panel should be in the middle while the pull through for both I-244 & US 412 W Bound should be on the left.

Also US 412 is signed in front of I-244 where the interstate is supposed to be dominant over the lower designation US route.

It looks like they're using the "66" numerals from the Phillips 66 logo.

It would make sense -- historically, Phillips Petroleum was headquartered in Bartlesville, which is north of Tulsa on US 75. The recent series of mergers and splits with Conoco have ended that, though both ConocoPhillips and Phillips 66 maintain significant operations in the area.

That appears to be a City of Tulsa installation. I'd guess Phillips paid for that advertisement in some way or another, but who knows.

Interesting that the 21'0" clearance is marked. That's unusually high and I would think a clearance that high would not need to be marked, unless Oklahoma marks all clearances.

I'm pretty sure they mark almost if not all clearances. At least that's by me judging this photo (Taken by myself)
