7th Street, NW, suddenly becomes Georgia Avenue at Florida. And don't get me started on the fact that Florida Avenue itself disappears for about 100 feet. Or that Florida Avenue becomes U Street at that very point and re-emerges 100 feet to the North.
I should have phrased it better.My complaint is with the suffixes.Does Georgia Ave. become Georgia Lane? (No, it does not.)
Also: while no one with a brain should be confused by this, isn't it a little like all those suffixes that change from NE to NW at North Capitol? Or NE to SE at East Capitol?
In Columbia, we used to live at the intersection of Little Patuxent Parkway and Little Patuxent Parkway. Yes, the same road intersected itself. If that isn't a mindfuck, I don't know what is.Meanwhile, this crap happens in cities too. My offfice is located at a simple 4 point intersection. However, each street changes names as you cross the intersection. Try figuring that one out on your mapquest directions.
That's confusing that streets change names around your office. But I'm talking about streets that keep the same name but change suffixes.
I found another road that intersects itself. It's near Beauregard. (Only Dave knows what I'm talking about here.)
