County Road 39


Today's post is two photos, the first is another number post, 39. It serves a dual purpose in that County Road 39 is the road I live on. It's a strange road. It's part of a larger road, New York State RT27 which I made the other photo on.
NYS Route 27 is said to be over 122 miles long and runs east and west. It is the only way to get to Montauk Point, and is the only major road on the south eastern end of the island.
This time of year, all the summer folks start coming out to their summer homes to open them up for the season. Where NYS RT27 merges with CR39 is right where I live. At this point the speed limit also changes from 55 mph to 35 mph.
Up until 2 years ago CR39 was a single east bound lane. The traffic situation was a horror scene then. So they made two lanes from the one lane and slowed down traffic. Now, sometimes the trade parade on a Monday morning is the only traffic we see anymore.
The car photo is typical of a Friday afternoon. I got a kick out of the big dog trying to get up into the back window.

You've got me taking pictures of numbers now. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them, but I'm gradually collecting them!
