Lake County, FL fractional county route shields
« on: November 25, 2009, 02:15:31 AM »

Years ago, when Lake County CRs 561 and 561A were separate entities, they duplexed a couple of blocks north of SR 50 in Clermont. (Now, CR 561 has been stripped out of Clermont and Minneola and routed onto what was CR 561A). SPUI stated on a site he used to maintain that the two routes were shielded as a fraction, and I was wondering does anyone have photos of the sign?

I asked SPUI this question, and he came back with http://i48.tinypic.com/v4rm69.jpg.

A tiny pic, it is! (Is that deliberate?) ;)

Sadly, no. Even this place in Mascotte, which has old advertisement signs and an old signal outside of it, doesn't even have one hanging on the outside walls.

I will go pout, now.

I'm not trying to be smart, but I think they should have eliminated CR 561 A just call it 561.  I know this is not a fictional highways topic, but wouldn't it be cool to put 561 with SR 50 and then multiplex it with US 27 to bypass Minneola. I lived in Groveland for 4 years- I know the route. By the way, the photo of the fractional sign was cool-that sign is only one of its kind. Hey, does anyone have the ambition to take a photo of US 27 and CR 561 signed together? There are not many places where this phenomenon occurs.
