NC: Truck Route Found in Robersonville
« on: July 07, 2019, 10:24:06 am »
I thought I had spotted this before when we passed through Robersonville to get NC 903 between it and Greenville.  It had been bugging me so we finally got off the main US 64 and went back through town and drove and confirmed a truck route through Robersonville.  Heading south on NC 903, as we approached the stoplight at US 64 Alt, we saw a NC 903 Truck South sign pointing to the left.  It takes you over one block to Grimes Street instead of going straight through the rundown downtown area.  It goes down three blocks to 3rd St by Ann's House of Nuts before returning back to NC 903.  Weirdly, the railroad crossing isn't signalized like on the main 903 but I guess they assume trucks will slow down and stop for the railroad normally.

Some relevant GSV looks.

Also attaching a screenshot of Google Maps where I drew in the route.  And, wow, 192 KB is a tiny file size.  The PNG was too big, but luckily it fit as JPG.
