Pennsylvania Roads - Philadelphia


One-piece RIDOT shields, but since they're erected by the city, I can't yell at PennDOT. The second one is on Market St. EB at 5th St., and the first one was probably on 5th St. NB at Arch St.

On 3rd St. NB, with a rare and ancient sign at Chestnut St. "Parkway" is that of Benjamin Franklin, well to the west along Arch St. The Parkway dates to 1917, but the sign is somewhat newer than that - but probably closer to 1917 than 2017.

Myrtlewood St. SB past Thompson St. The little text says "PGH DPS," something I'd expect to find in Pittsburgh.

The SB, WB, and EB faces of faded signs at this intersection. Mt. Vernon St. is one-way WB so the EB face of the sign helps no one, which may or may not explain why it's in the relatively poorest shape. (Okay, it helps pedestrians. I'm going for humor.)

Main St. in Darby becomes Woodland Ave. in Philly as it heads east across Cobbs Creek. The signs are all at Island Ave. after the 1909 bridge.

The east and west sides of Whitby Ave. SB over railroad tracks near 53rd St.

Elevated railways over Spring Garden St. EB at 9th St. and above 25th St., NB only, from Federal St., WB only.

While I'm looking at elevated railways, this one's on the north side of Lehigh Ave., seen here at Tulip St. Actually, it's a former rail spur, so rather than put lipstick on the pig with a mural, it should have been butchered for bacon.

Still on Lehigh Ave., with more views of the same railroad spur by the next cross street, Aramingo Ave. Here you can see where the track has been ripped out.

The 34th St./University Ave. bridge over the Schuylkill River, NB.

Falls Bridge southbound from Fairmount Park, also over the Schuylkill.

The eastward view along the river, featuring the US 1 Roosevelt Expwy. bridge.
