Granted this isn't "Closed Street" but Sapulpa Oklahoma might have a retort for you:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Closed+Rd,+Sapulpa,+OK+74066/@35.9470423,-96.1169091,584m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x87b6bcd978ec02b3:0x83540435bacc0efd!8m2!3d35.9484051!4d-96.1151493?hl=en

Personally I'd pick a stretch of US Highway for the FritzOwl Memorial designation.  :-D

Street St.

There is, however, at least one Street Road that I know of (in the Philadelphia area). I think there may be another one somewhere along I-68 in western Maryland, as well.

Ethanman62187 Memorial Freeway, numbered I-366 and with a posted speed limit of 85.
Any street named after a disease (I actually have the Pearson S. Trail somewhere, with the 'S.' standing for syndrome)
Transatlantic Bridge
Express way, Free way, High way, etc.
Achimun Pinnara St. (Intersecting O Say Does That Star-Spangled Banner Yet W Ave. mentioned above)
Toll Rd.

On a related note, due to the way Spanish given names are set (With two family names) and our streets are named (With the street type as prefix), it is possible for a street to appear to be named after someone by adding the location name, where the street name is the first family name and the location name is the second family name. I managed to find this once (And surprisingly at the location itself, not through Google Maps).

There's no such thing as a "multi-state route", it's just as many state routes as states implied that happen to have the same number.

All times 6 hours behind my real time unless otherwise noted.

There's actually two Street Roads in the Greater Philadelphia area that I'm aware of.  One is in Bucks County (PA 132) and the other is mostly in Chester County (PA 926).

Trump Highway

Are we sure this doesn't already exist?  The guy loves putting his name on things, and his main business is real estate, so he has probably had a few opportunities to name roads…

New Haven Ct.

Why not?
