Some Big Green Signs Using Some of My Suggestions.

Here are some big green signs using some of my suggestions.



New Jersey:

The County Road route marker is Chris Blaney's idea

The Old Dominion.

Here are some suggested route marker signs for Virginia. The present State Primary route markers are a kind of rounded shield in a black square, and the State Secondary is the boring circle sign.

Here's the present Primary route marker.
(Grey represents sky, which is typical throughout)

This one can be for limited-access free roads like Quebec's Autoroutes.

This one can be for toll roads.

This one can be for the Primary roads.

And this one can be for Secondaries.

The Magnolia State.

Remember when Mississippi had the Magnolia auto registration plates? Well I think the state ought to model its route markers after it. In my suggested scheme, the surround and numerals are blue, and the magnolia is a green, yellow and grey watermark. I think it would be great for tourism.

One and two-digit.

And three digit. 
(1xx 3-digit signs can be a little bit narrower.)

Smaller versions at RV Droz's website.

Newfoundland and Labrador

An idea for Newfoundland and Labrador. The present sign is a drab white square on a green field, with contrasting numbers and letters.

This is the old sign, no longer in use.

And this is my retro-style suggestion, using the province's tourism logo.

Nova Scotia.

Here are my ideas for Nova Scotia. Although its present Arterial (1xx) route markers are interesting, its present Trunk Highway and Collector Highway route markers are rather drab.

Present Nova Scotia Arterial.

A suggestion for their Arterials that are built to freeway and tollway standards.

A suggestion for their Trunk Highways.
(The present is a cutout-style US-Route shield border on a white square.)

And a suggestion for their Collector Highways.
(The present consists of white letters and border on a Tuscan red, i.e. brown, square.)

How about this for Connecticut? It works the same whether for single, double or triple digit numbers.

It's based on the Charter Oak.
