ARLINGTON, Va. — In Northern Virginia, route markers are not used as much as they should be, particularly in Arlington County and the city of Alexandria, so anytime one is actually used, that’s a good thing.
However, that shield for route 120 doesn’t look like a standard Virginia primary state highway marker, does it?
The reason is it is actually the shape of the Oregon state route marker:
Quite the sign goof, certainly by a third-party vendor.
Also, I have never once heard Glebe Road referred to as “Route 120” or anything similar, always Glebe.
Lastly, Arlington forget to put primer on the mast arms/poles at this intersection. The black pant started peeling almost immediately. It looks terrible.
