New York Roads - NY 17C/Old NY 17

NY 17C and 17C/former NY 17

The western part of NY 17C is old NY 17. In Owego, old 17 crossed the North Branch Susquehanna River and used NY 434 to Binghamton, but 17C continues on the north side of the river.

Upside-down NY 96 shield, courtesy Doug Kerr. This goof is understandable, since 96 upside-down is still 96. But there's a correct shield right above it! How hard can it be?

Dirt-old embossed stop sign just east of Owego.

Dirt-old EB sign at the NY 17 Exit 65 connector, with a closeup of the dirt-old STE shield.

This is the lamentable replacement for that fine button copy. I guess I-86 leads to NY 17, but the shields are wonky and "To" should be all caps. And it's not showing the possibly racist STE logo. And the old sign should be put back.

NB on that connector. Too hard to find a spare shield or two?

Continuing east, the top shield is not supposed to exist. Nothing in the 900s in NY is intended to be posted, and only a couple of routes have consistent "error" signage, but this happens to be one of them.

NY 17C eastbound at the beginning and end of the NY 26 SB duplex. Bike Route 17 follows NY 17 closely across New York, and some counties as you can see here add their own routes, but for counties to indicate that the routes being signed are indeed county routes is rare (most other signs just say 1, not Broome 1, for example). The last sign accidentally specified lower case letters 3/4 the size of upper case (which they are naturally if you don't specify anything) but it's also specified some random font. Vestarial? Universtal?

Eastbound at NY 17 Exit 69, where NY 17, NY 17C, and railroad tracks are all packed in tight, just west of Binghamton.

A little bonus westbound, continuing past NY 17 to a trumpet interchange in eastern Endicott.

Old stuff in Johnson City, NB at the end of Floral Ave. and looking west at the Binghamton city line.

Last bit of button copy, EB.
