[or_geography, or_roads] State Route 551

1171. One of the few signs or a post-2002 State Route badge–once simply the cutoff route to State Route 99E between Aurora and Hubbard, and Canby via Arndt Rd and Knights Bridge Rd:

Taken on the shoulder of I-5 just before the exit, in less-than-optimum conditions. The "To" banner enables identification of the route but obviates (until the signage is updated at Exit 282A) the need to get a whole new sign up just now.

This was the highest-numbered Route in Oregon before they got shy about a certain "below the Beltline" reference.
