This week's Throwback Thursday takes us back to April 2007. This is a rather unique concrete sign for the Shunpike, which is a county road in Dutchess County, New York (Dutchess CR 57 for those playing at home). The sign was along the eastbound lanes of US 44 east of Millbrook, and at last check, they are still there. Over time, some of the letters on the sign have fallen off, but you may be able to make out that Stanfordville is 7 miles away. I believe that the other town in question is Bangall.
California State Route 38 is a fifty-nine-mile State Highway located entirety in San Bernardino County and a component of the Rim of the World Highway. California State Route 38 begins at California State Route 18 at Bear Valley Dam of the San Bernardino Mountains and follows an easterly course on the north shore of Big Bear Lake. California State Route 38 briefly multiplexes California State Route 18 near Baldwin Lake and branches east towards the 8,443-foot-high Onyx Summit. From Onyx Summit the routing of California State Route 38 reverses course following a largely westward path through the San Bernardino Mountains towards a terminus at Interstate 10 in Redlands. Pictured as the blog cover is California State Route 38 at Onyx Summit the day it opened to traffic on August 12th, 1961.
