Ohio Roads - Misc.

Misc. Photos

This embossed Township Route sign is in my collection. At least, I think it's a Township Route, but it says Wayne Co. on it. Even though this isn't a state sign, that is an old font regardless of where you see it.

A few more town signs, OH 320 NB and then two in a row on OH 661. Both. Northbound. Mind blown yet?No? Good, that's an overused meme.

OH 199 SB at Eckel Junction Rd., Perrysburg.

OH 656 SB and the next route it comes to, OH 521 WB, nearing Delaware.

Ancient white distance sign on the connector from OH 269 SB to Ottawa CR 135, then east on Bay Shore Rd./CR 135.

OH 117 EB through Spencerville and on to Lima, where after crossing I-75 it breaks away from OH 309 on its way past the Airport (first destination) toward Bellefontaine (second destination). Even at this resolution, I know button copy when I see it.

OH 307 EB hits a multiplex, and OH 167 gets milepost 0 on the same assembly. Ohio likes to do the NORTH-SOUTH-one-assembly setup, and it also likes to distort the state outline so that the northwestern and northeastern corners are at the same latitude. They're not even close. This was a problem with old signs, but old habits clearly die hard. And new habits, like stretching the Ohio outline for the OH 46 shield to match the three-digit routes, had better die soon.

In much of Ohio, County Roads and Township Roads perform similar functions - it's just a question of maintenance. So it should come as no surprise that they both are signed with similar-looking squares no matter what the county or township (and there is no Wads, that's Wadsworth). In addition to the color schemes seen here, there's a green one on the OH 18 page.

Cincinnati from Wilder Ave. (and nominally the old fence) and on Price Ave. EB.

West Ave. NB in Elyria challenges trucks, becomes Lake Ave., and crosses Black River to the old signal at Furnace St.

Indiana Ave. WB, Perrysburg.

I was following a construction detour in Eaton and we ended up in a residential area. As much as I appreciate the meta-reference of "SIGN," it's wrong.
