Lake Jackson, Texas has two roads entitled This Way and That Way which intersect in downtown.

There is also an Any Way.

This Way was already mentioned earlier in this thread:
At first, I thought this was an extemporaneous way to direct you to Abner Jackson Parkway, but there's actually a "This Way" in Lake Jackson, Texas:

"Football", a quite ambiguous word for me. I assume "association" football instead of "American" football.

All times Eastern unless DST is in force only in the USA (Central in that case to preserve "6 hours behind my actual time") or otherwise noted

South New Avenue in Monterey Park, CA.

Over 800k for that POS house?  That house is the poster child example of exactly why I refused so many transfers to Los Angeles and the Inland Empire.

No Name Road, Guemes Island, Washington.

There's a "No Name Uno" in Gilroy, CA (also signed as "Noname Uno", no suffix), a frontage road to US 101.  As I understand it, "No Name 1" (and a nearby "No Name 2") were intended to be temporary names, but someone decided to roll with it.  I'm also told it's pronounced "no-nahm-ee".

Ironically, our community hospital (Saint Louise Regional Hospital) is located on No Name Uno.
