Washington Roads - US 12
The last interesting thing WB and the first one EB in Aberdeen. The Zelasko Park carving is interesting, the bridge moreso (to my readers), but most interesting is the "speed 20" sign, the second Oregon-style speed (no "limit") sign I've seen in Washington, which makes me think there are more.
More views north of that bridge, which happens to carry US 12 WB. The Wishkah River Bridge was built in 1924 before there even was a US 12.
The bridge to the south is not US 12, or a road. It's the 1909 Puget Sound & Pacific railroad bridge.
Looking south at the 1949 Heron St. Bridge that I just crossed on US 12 EB.
Heading back west on Wishkah St. US 101 is the end of the road.
You'll see Kurt Cobain's song title entering Aberdeen because he lived here, and it turns out this famous phrase was originally printed on an ad for the Morck Hotel, a local run-down 1940s motel that Kurt spent time at, so now it's the city's.
The MUTCD says to make these signs as realistic as possible, but this is a bit much, heading west from Malone.
Looking west and east in Mary's Corner from old US 99 in Lewis Co.
WB at WA 131 SB in Randle. WA 131 ends pretty quickly, turning into NFR 23 and/or 25. 25 takes you to Spirit Lake via the dead-tree Blast Zone, which appears to be the significance of that rainbowy shield next to the 131 SOUTH.
EB in Yakima in 1985, courtesy Michael Summa. Gotta love those shields.
WB across the 1952 Snake River bridge. The wider EB span was built in 1986, fortunately in a similar style.
WB in Walla Walla in 1983, courtesy Michael Summa. The Oregon shield is not hard for WSDOT (Washington State DOT) to get right.
