Interesting. They used to have MPH under the limit, but it's been several years since I was last in the US. But that was more than 20 years ago now, as a kid/teen. I seem to remember the MPH in Alaska and on a few signs in Montana, but not Idaho.

In Canada, it's pretty much standard practice to put KM/H under the posted limit here. As I mentioned in my previous post, Alberta and Quebec are the exception to that rule. I think Ontario also does not have it either.

Another cool video showing some of the rural roads in the Texas Hill Country around Lake Travis just outside of Austin.

I have a question:

what and whom determines if a road is a US-route or not? I know well the criteria for Interstates and the designation process but not for US-routes.

There really isn't one. US Routes can be freeways, divided highways, single lane roads, etc. The only thing that really distinguishes them from state highways is that the signage and route number is consistant from one state to another.

The original purpose, back about 1925 when automobile travel was becoming mainstream and the states were starting to try to get their roads up to speed, was to assure that routes of national importance, or at least important to more than one state, were given appropriate priority by the states they passed through. It was a conference of state highway officials that decided to do this, mapped the system out, and have made changes over the years - I think they now have responsibility for Interstate numbering as well - so they're not actually federal highways, but state highways numbered according to a national system.

The E-routes would be a good analogy, although I take it they're taken less seriously by some countries than others, particularly by the general public, whereas the U.S. routes are consistently marked and fairly well known to the public; and most of them don't carry a state number as well.

It is worth mentioning that several Southern states mandate that all US and even Interstate routes must carry a state route designation as well. Often, the state route designations remain hidden (I would venture that they are always hidden on Interstates), but some states always post the state designations along the roads and even at intersections. Georgia is very good for this.

Proposed Saint Croix River Stillwater (MN/WI) Bridge drive-through

Here is a nice drive-though animation of the proposed new Saint Croix River bridge, proposed to connect MN 36 with WI 64 at the Minnesota-Wisconsin state line at Stillwater, MN/Somerset, WI, replacing an old two-lane low-level lift bridge that is in serious danger of catastrophic failure within the near-term future. Environmentalists are vigorously trying to prevent this from being built.

Enjoy!
