Georgia interstate 285 highway sign. U p for sale today is this Georgia I-285 Atlanta Loop sign, from the opening ceremony of October 15th, 1969, when the road was completed all the way around Atlanta with at least two lanes in each direction. Nowadays of course it’s up to about six lanes in each direction, and a travel speed of 90. Or is that 90 lanes with a travel speed of six? A n original of these is not only very rare to find scrapped, but is a herculean effort to transport; also, as far as I know, they only made one and probably discarded it immediately (along with good old Ax-Handle Les). So here is your chance to own an excellent display piece, without having to dust off the time machine. The sign is flat printed on heavy gauge steel, with completely accurate layout and fonts. It weighs about 32 pounds, 10 ounces. The freeway signs in use in the field are much more colossal – this one is a precise rescaling of the freeway style sign down to a much more manageable 40×32. It is a non-reflective sign – perfect for ordinary display, indoors or outdoors. If you would like a larger size version, or a reflective one, please ask as I can certainly make one! This is a high quality, heavy steel sign. Accept no imitations that may be one-third this price, but are one-tenth the quality. No cheap tin to be found here, with the wrong fonts, layouts, size, shape, or any other manner of embarrassing imperfection. This one will make even the most discerning collector stick their nose into the sign, as it looks that good from that close! I can of course make these signs with. Any route number of your choice. And not just this style, but others with the reflectors, the embossed style that other states used, and even the classic mileage, direction, and city limit guide signs from the era. Anything you would like, made with unsurpassed quality right here in the good old US of A. Life doesn’t happen along the interstates. It’s against the law.
