Older cutout VA and US highway signs are still prevelent in smaller towns - Danville, VA has quite a few. There is evidence that these signs are sometimes replaced by new cutouts! (Photo by Joe Koehler).

You won't see any of these on the road. These were abandoned by the late 1940's in favor of reflectorized signs. The "L" sign instructed the motorist to turn left at the next junction. (Photo by Joe Koehler).

SECONDARY HIGHWAY SIGNS

Current style Virginia Secondary route marker. These route numbers tend to repeat in various parts of the state. Usually only routes in the 500-600 series get these signs - higher number routes have small markers. (Photo by Joe Koehler).
