Almost perfect ...

Nowadays, the Montana Department of Transportation is hardly known for its inspired signage ... when it installs a sign that's brilliant enough for a photograph, it's almost certainly accidental. This sign, up at Eddie's Corner in Fergus County, is a perfect example; I think it's the best highway sign in the state, though I'm pretty sure it wasn't intended to be.

But as good as this sign is, it's just not quite perfect. So I think the citizens of Montana need to march on the MDOT building in Helena, demanding that the state assign a fourth highway number to this stretch of road ... one that's heading westbound!


  1. Yeah, I've loved that stretch of road for years, just because of the signage.

    But it really, REALLY needs a westbound number!!!
