Vermont Roads - VT 100

VT 100

VT 100 is the backbone of Vermont, running straight up the center of the state. Two lanes the entire way, and not heavily traveled, it nevertheless is no less important an N-S route than US 5 and US 7.

Southbound in Readsboro, the last town of any size before the VT 8 junction. The road heading off past the embossed legal limit sign is Branch Hill Rd.

Just north of there, south of Wilmington.

Let's jump north to Waitsfield, EB from VT 100 on Bridge St. over the Mad River. The Village Bridge was constructed in 1833.

Back westbound over the bridge. I wonder just how old that shielded light is in the last photo.

A random survey marker, looking south from the bridge along the river, and then switching spots and looking north at the bridge.

This sign's seen better days.

Skipping the US 2 concurrency (see big link at bottom), state-name shields NB and SB, respectively, in Waterbury.

SB down to Waterbury Center (okay, the second photo is on VT 108 SB in Stowe), to the 1833 Methodist Church. I'm guessing Stowe maintains its own roads, because the state would never mess up that badly.

Northbound through Morrisville. The first two photos are the top and bottom of the same assembly.

And SB, starting at the 90 bend at A Street north of downtown, and ending with the older and newer versions of the same assembly. Old or new, they're both wrong, as this is VT 15A here; VT 12 only begins to the east where VT 15A splits off on Park St.

Bridge St. EB at VT 100/Brooklyn St.

Barely two lanes wide, the old bridge on VT 100 was recently replaced although I had guessed after my last time through that it wouldn't be. Goes to show what I know.

Just to the north, an abandoned railroad trestle. I'll guess this one won't be gone soon either, so let's see.

The joy of town maintenance! Signs like these are at least 50 years old, yet have held up much better than regular square shields (see the US 5 link at top for examples of those).

SB from the top of VT 100C to the old Superior Court building at old VT 15 in Hyde Park. I theorize that the "100" was shifted left in the shield because it's so close to 100C, and may have been initially done for the wrong road. The mountains in the second photo are Morse and Sterling in the foreground and Mansfield in the distance.
