For me, it's probably San Bernardino CR-66.

Longest Lettered Route You've Missed Out On (Excluding Wisconsin and Missouri)?

This feels like one of the Threads You'll Never See in AARoads posts.

The state list got a healthy response.

Signed County Route J8 In California at 44 miles.  I have no idea for Florida but I assume there is something that probably tops that which I havenít driven.

No, but County Foutes a surprisingly significant thing at least in California and Florida hence my answer.

Are we talking the 6 largest states by area, or by population?  This sounds like the third question the bridge keeper would ask at the Bridge of Death.

Broward/Hendry CR 833 is about 53 miles, while Hendry/Lee CR 846 (the thread's question) is roughly 54 miles.

San Bernardino's CR 66 is much longer than that, at 206 miles.

I'd asked in another thread, and there's some sub-provincial routes in Canada that are comparatively ridiculous in length.

A whole shitload of even-numbered county roads in NJ; they've sure got a lot!  Don't know that it's in the top 6 population wise, but considering the satirical thread premise, I really don't care!

According to TM, the lowest route number I've never actually traveled any of is 21. The highest would have to be ∞.

Hey, if TX can have its OSR and Ontario its QEW, then fish it is!  Now paperweight -- that might be a bridge too far!

Well, the longest even-numbered county road that I have and haven't been on in the 6 largest US states would probably have to be Alan Route 3B∂.

Even though I've been to Illinois, I've been on one county road, excluding running, and it was odd (forget which number, but its N/S)

Well, Aleph-0 is past infinity :sombrero:. The highest route number I've never traveled is the Indescriptible Cardinal, I'm pretty sure that is the largest possible number :bigass:.

Proud of having clinched all North Dakota Interstates... on Street View.

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.

County routes *are* a big thing in NJ, especially the 500 series. Most are still more often referred to by name, but some rural ones don't have names and *are* referred to by number quite frequently. The longest even one I've never been on is probably CR 524 at 40 miles.
