I-70N in western Baltimore


Timothy Reichard 11/9/03

Westbound on US 40 in western Baltimore, two of these old signs hang. One is hung at the intersection with Winans Way and Upland Parkway, and the other at Cooks Lane and Old Orchard Road. Cooks Lane is the shortcut to the first interchange of I-70 (formerly I-70N), but trucks were (and still are) directed to I-70 via US 40 west to I-695 north, which meets I-70 at its second interchange.

 

MD 166 signed as I-195 south of Catonsville


Timothy Reichard 11/9/03

These signs stand at the intersection of MD 166's two lane road and the four-lane MD 166 freeway, which will officially change designation to I-195 a mile to the south at the I-95 interchange. Instead of indicating that MD 166 continue south from this junction, the number is scrapped in favor of I-195. Perhaps a more correct designation would be MD 166 TO I-195.

 



Timothy Reichard 11/9/03

The first reassurance shield on the MD 166 freeway. I-195 begins less a mile ahead. This sign's counterpart on the northbound lanes is correct as MD 166.

 

New Bridge on MD 32 north, south of Sykesville


Timothy Reichard 12/21/02

Northbound on MD 32 approaching Sykesville. MD 32 bypasses the town on the east side, and in doing so, crosses the Patapsco River. While a the river bridge is being replaced, this sign erroneously displays MD 32 as US 32.

 

To MD 29 near the US 29 & MD 100 interchange


Timothy Reichard 12/21/02

These signs direct outbound shopping center traffic near the interchanges of US 29, MD 100, and MD 103. US 29 is missigned as MD 29 on these nonstandard signs.

 

MD 40 and MD 295 in southern Baltimore


Timothy Reichard 11/22/03

This is Russell Street northbound near Orioles and Ravens stadiums in southern Baltimore. Immediately to the left is MD 295 where it loses the name Baltimore-Washington Parkway and takes over Russell Street. This lane leads to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, which leads to US 40 and I-83, but US 40 is signed here as MD 40 and is missing a TO banner sign.
