Is Mt. Nuie in Hawaii?

Could be, but that particular reference is in Phoenix.

Lexington, MA. If it was construction orange, it would be fine, but it is warning yellow. (I didn't see anything that would require it to be orange, so it should be white.)

Saw this in Shelbyville, IN last Thursday.

Those have been there for ages. I'm surprised they haven't been fixed.

Saw this an hour ago.

The arrow under VA 33 should be pointing left. This is at the top of the ramp from I-64 WB at Exit 205

This interchange has a lot of problems - the EB offramp from I-64 has a US 33 shield instead of a VA 33 shield, and it's been there for quite a while.

Here are a few from eastern Idaho. If these have been posted before, I didn't see them.



(sorry about picture quality, it had just started to rain.) The right sign is incorrect, as this isn't Business 26 or even mainline 26. If there's a 26 up there at all, there should be a "TO", since Business 15/20 doesn't reach US 26 until downtown in a mile or so.



Along the same lines as the previous sign, but this one seems to imply this road is Business 20 to US 26 and BL-15. This time the 26 is correct, but this road actually is BL-15. A simple rearrangement of the shields would fix this.



More inconsistent than wrong but I feel it deserved to be posted here. If the "TO" on the left sign also applies to US 20 (which it should), then the "BUSINESS" on the right sign would apply to US 26 (which it shouldn't, as that's mainline 26).



This is just a shield error but it's an uncommon one with a lot of potential for confusion. The I-15 shield on Exit 71 should be a Business Loop 15.

US 87 in Texas?  Yes the US route does go through Texas, but it does not travel into Galveston.

This is one of two errors as another US 87 shield is along Seawall Blvd. and Ferry Road.

It is erroneous!  Who really cares where it goes?  This is why you have many come and go from here, because of the technical stuff.  I will tell you what, when I post the other US 87 shield on Seawall, I will post it there to make you happy.

This is in Springfield, IL, BL-55/Peoria Rd at Taintor Road.  As per Jerry McClanahan's EZ 66 Guide, the Historic Route 66 sign is wrong:

It's erroneous but it's an extremely common error. Which is why it has its own thread. Otherwise this thread would be a veritable dumping ground for mix-ups, with only the occasional truly odd error.

I'm very tolerant of ugly temporary signs during roadwork projects, but it ticks me off no end when existing signs aren't properly covered or altered when traffic patterns are changed.  My current rant is this one on northbound I-75 approaching I-94 in Detroit.  The ramps to 94 westbound are closed for most of this year.  A sign crew covered the westbound control city (Chicago) but not the Exit Only banner, which points to a lane that is closed just a couple hundred feet beyond.  I drive this most weekday afternoons and constantly see vehicles move into the right lane only to have to immediately merge back to the left.  Same situation on the southbound side.  Stupid.
