Nothing for Putin I could find and there is too many Clintons to count.

If it just says "Clinton", it's probably after Bill Clinton, not Hillary Clinton.
A lot of those had the name prior to Bill Clinton being president and is pure coincidence.
California Blvd in Fayetteville, AR is now Clinton Blvd because it passes Hill & Bill's first home (now a museum)

Wolverine St. in any Ohio municipality, or Buckeye Rd. anywhere in Michigan
You underestimate the power of tOSU/UMich grads in local government who need to come up with a name for the road leading to that new landfill or sewage treatment plant.

Yes, there are many streets in Minnesota named Badger or Viking.  Do people not even bother looking first before posting on this thread??

To name a few:

Viking — Buffalo, Burnsville, Eden Prairie
Badger — Caledonia, Garrison, Kimball, Monticello

Dayton has one if a Drive is included--Canton has one as well but no signblade. 

As far as US 666 being north-south, isn't that OK?  I thought the 3-digit US routes didn't have[/url] to follow the numbering convention.  (US 202 is another prominent example of such, although it changes back and forth.)

Actually there was a US Route 420:

http://www.usends.com/20-29/420/420.html

More than a handful of Interstate Spurs and state highways numbered 420:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highways_numbered_420

Rumor was when I was living in Florida that Lake Pickett Road saw a lot of County Route sign thefts...  Too bad Colorado and Washington couldn't join in the fun.

Bootlegger Trail in Montana

https://www.google.com/maps/search/Bootlegger+Trail,+Ledger,+MT/@48.2909071,-111.3387996,14z/data=!3m1!4b1?hl=en

I want to say there is a secondary supplemental route in Missouri which would be akin to a county route that is signed as KKK...at least there is one floating on eBay now and then.

Not "Canyon" but there are plenty of Glory Hole Roads in 49er country up in the Californian Sierra:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Glory+Hole+Rd,+Angels+Camp,+CA+95222/@38.0086968,-120.5385567,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x8090ea9871c0965b:0x97df03c5bbeef62a!8m2!3d38.0086968!4d-120.536368?hl=en

Plenty of Richard Nixon to go around:

The sad part is that the guy who had the KKK Route sign was asking a small fortune for it....   Silver lining was that nobody seems to have bought it over the past year...at least that affirms some minimal faith in humanity.  I'll post the ebay listing if it comes up again.  That said just goes to show how twisted up almost anything can becomes with time and a couple really nasty people.

Route 420

As if it was never proposed for an US or Interstate designation.
I-420 was taken down (twice), while US 420 is now part of Alt US 14. All of this was unrelated to cannabis culture.

Not to mention in Spain we have a very long road numbered N-420. In fact it is the second longest national road at 550 miles (only behind N-340, at which ends), although now it is split in two due to a section in the middle being downgraded to a first order regional road.

This thread has devolved into a mix of (1) street names that do actually exist but the member neglected to bother doing a cursory Google search first, and (2) silly names that only bear resemblance to street names by the addition of "Hwy" or "St" at the end. We seem to have run out of truly clever ones.

I was about to suggest "Hwy 0", but Wikipedia lists two highways with that number, in Belgium and Hungary. That makes me wonder, are there any highways with true fractions as their number? e.g. Route 6˝?

I-666 is my planned Washington outer beltway :evilgrin:.

We seem to have run out of truly clever ones.

I fell casualty to #1 with Toll Road, as it exists in Salisbury MA (I even had read about it before in this forum :banghead:). I've done several clever ones, like the full name-like Pearson S. Trail. I don't think they would name a street after a disease, and in this case the S stands for syndrome (I've seen an upcoming trail running event directly named after a disease, though). And the several memorial highways specified to meet certain conditions, such as the FritzOwl Memorial Highway being an US route, the Ethanman62187 Memorial Freeway being I-366 with an 85 mph speed limit, the TheAlan360 Memorial Goat Path being and not being a goat path, and the dzlsabe Memorial Hypotenuse cutting through neighborhoods.

And a couple more:
John Muir Freeway
Any street named after a US president in North Korea.
