Maryland Roads - MD 27

These shields are in MARYLAND. They should show some respect. Although I photographed them a day apart, it turns out they're both on Brink Rd., so that must be the only place this error occurs.

One of the disadvantages of a one-piece assembly is that MD can't come back and remove the unnecessary "TO" banners at the MD 108 junction.

Eastbound on the National Road, one of the non-state highway parts. The old alignment ahead is cut off by I-70. The state highway (MD 144) begins again on the south side of the I-70 interchange along MD 27, essentially a southern frontage road, then rejoins the National Road alignment. State-name Interstate shields are an exceptional rarity in Maryland. (State-name Maryland shields, those are supposed to be the rule.)

Obviously these are old alignments of MD 27 - well, actually, they're old alignments of MD 31, which 27 replaced north of Westminster (where 31 now ends). Heading NB toward Manchester, these segments of Old Manchester Road have another unusual property: they are both segments of MD 852. The second one being signed is unusual, and the first one being striped the whole way is unnecessary.

Onto MD 852, old MD 27
