Hopefully a map of the Beltline clears the signage issue up a tad.



As you can see I marked near the pedestrian overpass where Squiggles took the pic(s). Note the image in question is facing toward the Park St. exit (west), this is where US 151 and 14 leave/ join the freeway.

p.s. I love your Madtown pics Squiggles.... please keep posting em'!

The bridge is hard to get to from the beltline, but it's worth it.

And thanks. I actually live about 20 minutes from Madison in the middle of nowhere, but I take my camera every time I go to town.

This sign is really simple, just take the appropriate lane to get to the correct expressway.

Nope because there at least 3 interchanges in aether direction, after Park St., before the beltline meets another US highway.

The sign probably is more of a bungled reassurance marker then anything else. IMHO

Actually it is more of a navigational guide sign, telling motorists that the four numbered highways in the given direction are 'ahead' on the freeway. I've seen similar signs elsewhere in Wisconsin.

Under the newest Federal MUTCD, that US 12/14/18/151 AHEAD overhead BGS ('Big Green Sign') will have to show an up-pointing arrow over each lane, German-style, in place of the word 'AHEAD'. That sign has been there for many years.

Interestingly, that part of the Beltline is one of the relatively few places in the USA where four separate 'US' numbered highways share the same roadway.

I like how the highway is kinda like a street yet they separated traffic with concrete barriers.

Probably a street that wasn't designed for such traffic.

Route 3? No, more a case of a road that passed for state-of-the-art when it was built in the 40s.

Its US 1/9 they were all built around the same time 1930s-40s and are extremely overcrowded. Same is said for our rail network.
