Hi, I was wondering if anyone could find more images/GSV links to BGSs waiting for installation (or old ones torn down) at highway construction sites. For example, this graveyard of old I-77 Uptown Charlotte signs near the end of the HOT lanes project: https://www.google.pl/maps/@35.24552,-80.8472675,3a,53.4y,240.61h,87.44t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sqbSVdetujA0evoDzM64lKQ!2e0!7i16384!8i8192

Any other links please paste in this thread. Thanks!

Ever since the I-495 Express lanes were installed, the southwestern quadrant of the Braddock Rd / I-495 interchange more or less became a construction storage site.  In this image, there is signage waiting to be assembled and installed as part of the I-395 Express lanes.

You can often see signs waiting to be installed stored in WSDOT's Corson Ave S yard in Seattle. Oddly, the ones in this picture seem to have sat there for over a year from 2018 through 2019 (previous Street View images don't show sings sitting around for extended periods).

Removed sign bridge from I-70 widening in Springfield, Ohio last summer (OT, if you look at the new signs, the project plans were apparently never updated to not use Clearview)
