After being a closet road geek for forty years, with the acquisition of a digital camera, renewed interest in the roadgeek groups on the Internet and spare time due to early retirement, I have started my own roadgeek pages.
Odd and interesting street name signs I have found.
Wierd, wonderful and strange intersections

NCDot has been putting up BGS's on the unopened section of I 540 west of I 40. Since I 40 is exit 1, the exits west of the I 40 have been numbered starting at exit 50 for NC 54 and presumably counting down. However, NCDOT documents have said that the entire I 540 loop will be 65 miles. So, this exit should be exit 65. What gives? Before 540 opened, NCDOT completely resigned the highway, including mile markers.
US 74 is currently multiplexed with Future I 74. Not only is that confusing for the traveller, it violates a long standing rule in North Carolina that two highways cannot have the same number.
North Carolina has been adding exit numbers to non-Interstate freeways (and some expressways) over the last decade or so. These guides are a work in progress to try to document this numbering. Brian Leblanc has a site in progress, but it covers interstates as well. This guide concentrates on non-Interstate freeways and expressways. The to-do list of freeways is much longer than the list already done. If you have anything to add to these guides, please email me.
I 85/73/85 Business / US 29/70/220/421 Interchange in Greensboro is one of North Carolina's most confusing interchanges.
"Clinched" means that I have travelled every mile of that highway.
The Extra Mile Club is club of roadgeeks trying to visit as
counties in the US as possible.
