FL: FL 5 in West Palm Beach?
« on: July 20, 2021, 08:39:26 pm »
So I went for a run today along a loop in West Palm Beach, and I noticed a couple of FL 5 shields concurrent with US 1 near the FL A1A junction (point "FLA1A_For"). Should FL 5 be extended? According to OSM, the independent bit continues up to Belvedere Road and then it rejoins US 1, but I don't know if there's signage to support it (I'll let you know if there's FL 5 signage at the "OliAve" point on US 98 once I run that way).

Update: No FL 5 signage at either "BelRd" on US 1 or "OliAve" on US 98. There also wasn't much US 98 signage either, but lots of FL 80.

Taking a look at FDOT GIS data from 05/22/21, it says FL-5 ends pretty much right where I currently have it on the site.

I found one of those FL-5 signs along US-1 that you were talking about here.  I think those are just contractor posting errors since FL-5 is suppose to be hidden under US-1 & US-17 in the state except for that segment in West Palm Beach (FL-805 takes over under US-1 in this area) & Jacksonville (recently signed after US-1 was properly moved to I-95's C/D lanes in that area after recent construction).

On a side note, I might have to tweak that Jacksonville one some per this new signage I just found via StreetView from Jan '21.

Anyways, I think the West Palm Beach route doesn't need to be adjusted.

Yeah, I saw those last year and thought it was weird.

Another SR Easter Egg sighting is welcome.

Once I did my second run and found no other signage, I came to that conclusion as well.
