On my trip to see my brother I couldn't help but see some very apt street and road signs.
I'm going to list those I saw and ask for others of the same ilk.

Rhode Road, Road Street, Street Road, Boulevard Avenue, Cow Trail, Deer Trail, Country Road (gravel & in the middle of the country), Primitive Road (muddy trail), Pull & Be darned Road, River Road (it was underwater), Dry Creek Road, Dry Lake Road, Gravel Road (& it was), Here to There Road, The High Road, Lowe Road, and One Way Road (Honest, that was its name).

Brian, you  make some of the weirdest posts  afro cool shocked Wink Smiley Smiley

Now, you tell me, how on earth did you remember all the names of those weird road signs (well, you most likely wrote them down as you were travelling).  I found that so ding dang interesting about all the different road signs that you have noted.  I would love to hear more about weird names of roads, what a cool thread!!!  Have a most wonderfully awesome and great day, love life.  Cindi

My brain still has a thing for hanging onto facinating facts.  I can't abide trivia because it clutters the mind, but facinating facts are educational.

Until I had a neurological anurisum removed above my left ear I used to hear radio stations broadcasting in the 95Mhz range, I didn't mind the CW but the Grunge drove me crazy.  It was also a source of a lot of migraine headaches (the grunge stations?) but the migraines have more than dropped in half since I had it removed.  I'd get a sharp pain in the brain like being stabbed with a cold icepick and the migraines would start along with the music.

Brian, I am not kidding, you got some weird stuff going on there!!!  It is like your head was a receiver for radio stations or something, strange stuff eh?  So glad that you had that thing removed from upside of your ear!!!  Never had a migraine, but oh Brian, I bet that is pain like nothing on this earth, I am happy that they have so much diminished.  Have the most wonderful and awesome days, love life.  Cindi

Hello Brian,
I stumbled upon this thread and as what Cindi mentioned you are indeed so observant.
I'll just add some items to your list

Secret Place -> Its the actual name of the place, but its not secret. Every cab driver knows the place. Most visitors worry that they may not be able to find it since its a Secret Place.

Mountain Top Road -> but the entire stretch of the road is in the valley  grin

Abortion Road -> when you see the large potholes on this road, you won't wonder how it got its name.

Cut-off Road -> the name seems weird, but wait till you see the large portion that was cut due to landslides.

Not related to street or road names (sorry for the OT, just want to share something on Brian's list)
Senator by the name of JOKER. That is his real name.
Catholic Cardinal by the name of SIN. Its also his real name.

Bochekokik.  Thanks for adding the weird names too, I think that this thread could become very interesting as people add their odd observations of roads, hee, hee.  We have a couple here too.  One is called Dewdney Trunk Road and the other is called Dewdney Trunk Road.  Two different locations and many mixups made.  Most of the old timers refer to these two roads as Dewdney Trunk Road and Old Dewdney Trunk Road, but still lots of confusion as to which is which  huh huh huh  beautiful day in this great life, Cindi

I know what you mean, I have visited several places called Happy Valley but each is always at the top of a hill. 
Another appropriate name is a swamp named Hasty Lake, it is obvious that they were a little hasty calling it a lake.

I live near BjornBee. I have been through Intercourse (it is a very nice place). Been to Bird in Hand (kind of messy from what I remember). And I have been to Blue Ball (I did not like it there). Never been to Virginville although I hear it it a nice place to visit.

Well, you may have intercourse and virginville, but Hwy. 62 goes thru High Point, into horneytown, then continues on to climax. A nice road to travel.
