Hold it – Where Is The On-Ramp Construction
Notice the sign? The number 185. This sign is/was on Broadway in Bangor just before Stillwater Avenue. These photos were taken on the way to work Thursday morning (8/26). Meaning the middle of the night.
They must mean Exit 185, which is the Broadway exit on I 95. I saw this sign a few times this week, and somehow my brain didn't read 185, but read I 85. As in Interstate 85. Doh. Any one esle notice it. Anyone. Beuller.
My thought, "Why are they helping us with a traffic update for I 85? I 85 runs from just outside Richmond Virginia to Montgomery Alabama. So in the Southeastern states of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama.
I 95 runs from Houlton Maine to Miami Florida. That’s a lot of miles. Over 1,900 miles. And yes, I 95 does intersect with I 85.
Thanks for the heads up. And for those creative and meaningful signs all along I 95 in Maine. Nice to be entertained as we’re informed. And to whomever programmed the sign pictured, thank you for your creativity and informative message too. Sorry I saw a 1 as an I. But it wasn't yet 4 a.m.
