States with Large Swaths of Button Copy Left
« on: August 12, 2018, 09:18:10 PM »

Besides CA, what states still have whole routes signed with button copy?  or large swaths of button copy still standing?

I only take pics of good looking signs. Long live non-reflective button copy!

CT and NJ.

Alabama used to be, but many sign replacements over the years have gotten rid of a lot of the button-copy, though we still have more than any of our neighbors.

Ohio still has quite a bit, having been the last user of the stuff.  They even went so far as to buy it from states discontinuing it.

Indiana seems to have lots of it; maybe one-third of all the guide signs in the state still had button copy.

It's rapidly disappearing in West Virginia, but most of the short US 22 freeway still has mostly button copy. I'm unaware of anything but spot locations elsewhere now. The stretches with the heaviest concentrations in the past 20 years (I-64 east of Beckley, I-77 north of Charleston, I-64 near Huntington, US 60 southeast of Charleston, the interstates in Charleston) have had it all replaced.

Arizona still has quite a bit of button copy on Loop 101 in North Scottsdale.
