[US 31E]
Site Feature: Mount Washington's US 31EX
Posted: 6-Jan-2004 8:20AM CST

Signage at the intersection of US 31E and US31EX south of Mount Washington.

Mount Washington is home to a bit of signing oddity: instead of the old route of US 31E being marked "Business US 31E" it is marked as "US 31EX." Photos of this oddly signed route can be found here.

I've seen it where the business route just remains the same and the bypass is labeled "bypass." For example, in Danville, KY, US 127 bypass is called US 127 bypass and the road that's the business route is US 127. In Stanford, KY, US 150 bypass was renamed US 150 when they finished 4-laning it and the business route was absorbed into KY 78 and KY 300. I'm not sure if there is a definite guideline for labeling the bypass/business route for I've seen it both ways, sometimes so seamless that you're on the bypass before you know it.
