Is that on the old Bowers Mansion Road/SR 429 segment? I'm not familiar with that one.

Correct. Fairly close to the south end. And the sign blades throughout that area are strangely large.

For a slightly less fucking stupid entry than those above: Grassy Lick Road becomes High Street in Mount Sterling, Kentucky. :420:

I just remembered that there used to be a Damn Avenue near Middletown, OH. I used to have an old Butler County map from the '80s that showed this street.

I like that the sign is self-answering. Why Not Drive? Dead End.

This morning my brother sent me a photo of a sign for Rise Shaft Road, which is in the heart of the west Chesterfield sprawl country.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orobanche
Orobanche (broomrape or broom-rape) is a genus of over 200 species of parasitic herbaceous plants in the family Orobanchaceae, mostly native to the temperate Northern Hemisphere.

It's surrounded by other plant names. There's also a Beavertail (a type of cactus) in there.

Damn. I've driven on Needmore several times (my father-in-law and mother-in-law are buried in the cemetery on Dixie Drive) and I never made the connection of that name to roadgeeking.  :pan:
