Few years ago when you were going from Krakow to Katowice by A4 on a viaduct near Katowice/Sosnowiec Border (Silesia/Poland border) somebody wrote "Witajcie w 3 Rzeszy" which means "Welcome to the Third Reich" - it was because in Silesia lives many Germans and Silesians and many of Poles still thinks German/Silesian = nazi.

Ok, let's forget about some interregional dislikes. Today borders between województwa look like this

Florida-Georgia state line and Pinellas County line

Here's a pic of the Florida-Georgia state line looking north on Interstate 75 coming towards Valdosta:



The sign marking the Georgia state line and the Lowndes county line is in the background on the right side of the road. In this picture you will notice where the Florida DOT's maintenance responsibility ends and Georgia DOT's maintenance responsibility begins, as well as a mile marker 0 to signify the start of Interstate 75 in Georgia. This is shown by where the rumble strips on the right hand emergency lane stop.

As I have seen on other posts on this topic, I have seen how several other US states mark their state boundaries as far as interstate highways are concerned. There are no checkpoints at an American state line - just roll on in. However, if you are driving a truck, there is a truck weigh station or what some US states call a "port of entry" further into a state. After all, this is the USA, you know. (I know, Europe has the Schengen Agreement where it makes border crossings simpler and you don't have to stop, much like crossing an American state line - I'll save that for the International Border Crossings topic).

Now here's a typical American county line, and this one can be found on Interstate 275 south on the southbound lanes of the Howard Frankland Bridge coming into St. Petersburg from Tampa:



As you will see, this sign informs motorists on southbound Interstate 275 on the Howard Frankland Bridge that they are crossing into Pinellas County, which is one of Florida's 67 counties and home of beautiful beaches on the Gulf of Mexico including Ft. DeSoto Park. The county line is marked right at the sign, as we are on the high-rise hill section of the Howard Frankland Bridge (which we here in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area call "the hump").

Some states, including Florida, use the word "entering" before the county name as in the picture shown above. Other states such as Georgia and Tennessee just use a sign indicating the next county the motorist is coming into.

After all, the USA is divided into fifty individual states, while each individual state is further subdivided into counties. Two minor exceptions: Louisiana calls their counties Parishes and Alaska calls their counties Boroughs.

I just thought I would showcase Florida's state and county boundaries and contribute to the discussion on Regional Borders. After all, I am new to the SkyscraperCity forum and I thought I would contribute information I may have - I noticed you have plenty of highway and international border related info that I enjoy reading.

Yes, it is typical. The picture shown above is that of a typical Pennsylvania county line boundary and their signage is much smaller, even on Pennsylvania's interstate highways. Back in 2005 I took a side trip on Interstate 83 north of Baltimore (where I took a trip over the Labor Day weekend then) and once you cross the state line into Pennsylvania you see the state line prominently posted but county lines are not as prominently posted.

Again, it depends on the American state as to how signage for county lines are posted. As I explained in a previous post some states like Florida will use the word "entering" before the county name (example: Entering Pinellas County) while other states use the name of the county followed by the word County or the abbreviation Co.

In Virginia, county border signs are a bit different. I don't have any pix but they're naturally green with white text, and here's an example of the text.

ENTER
BOTETOURT CO

LEAVE
CRAIG CO


EDIT: I found a picture. Yes, the sign has been shot. (By a shotgun loaded with birdshot, from quite a distance away)

Cities in Virginia are, for all intensive purposes, separate counties, so this sign is a reasonable example.
