Just north of Wilmington, North Carolina on Interstate 40 at approximately Mile Marker 420 is the following mileage sign.



Now if you happen to get on I-40 heading East in Barstow, California, you will find a corresponding mileage sign that says Wilmington, NC. I have seen this sign but don't have a picture.

What unusual road signs do you want to document here.

:lol:

A bunch of us from work went out to lunch one day at Don Pablo's, where they were painting markings in the parking lot. They were busy correcting "LEFT OLNY" and "RIGHT OLNY" when we left.

:bill:

Nolescape, you might recognize this one.



It's on McClellan Parkway, just off of South Osprey, south of downtown Sarasota.

With all the budget cuts the state is making, I guess they need to make a buck any way they can!!

Not really a "road sign" but it is funny and it works with a recurring theme on this site:



This one is odd:

I know, old thread, but I had to bump this and show my two unusual signs:

1. "Watch for Low-Flying Helicopters". Are they low enough to be a hazard to vehicles?!



2. Next to a cemetery in Walkersville, MD, where my grandfather is buried, a rather ironically-placed road sign.

Your first photo is like on the roadway approaching an airport where I learned to fly airplanes, except of course it said airplanes. The approach apron of the runway (very short one I might add) was just across the ditch from the road. When I was on final and just before touching down I had to be sure that no automotive cross traffic was not yielding to my airplane. Other wise I had to execute a full power climb immediately in order to miss the auto or truck! That did happen too! The best part was the airplane junk yard that was immediately to the left of the final approach across the street from the runway. Gave us student pilots something to think about... :doh:

The airport has since been converted into a housing developement site and built up with 1/2 Million dollar houses. :shrug:
