West Virginia Roads

West Virginia

WV uses circles for secondary ("county") routes and pentagons for roads that serve as glorified driveways. So what's a triangle? It's known as a "delta road," a road not under state jurisdiction but eligible for state maintenance as an important route, such as for mail trucks or school buses. They make up less than 1% of the state highway mileage, which is why it's so rare to spot a shield. This one is on WV 27 EB, and predates the state conversion to black numbers on a white background, so it's entirely possible this is now a secondary route.
