Cooleyville Road... - Jamieson Cobleigh

About Cooleyville Road...

Previous Entry Cooleyville Road... Mar. 18th, 2005 @ 11:28 am Next Entry
When reveilles and I were driving home yesterday, we drove down 202 (a.k.a. Daniel Shays Highway). We were looking for the turn to go to Shutesbury Center and, since it was dark, we were carefully watching the street signs. Before we found our turn (which happened to be Prescott Road), the four previous street signs were all for Cooleyville Road. Not only that, once we got on Prescott Road, we came across its intersection with Cooleyville Road. Furthermore, Prescott Road turned into Cooleyville Road. I'd love know how this evolved over time. Can you imagine given people directions that read:
Go down Daniel Shays Highway. After its fourth intersection with Cooleyville Road, turn right onto Prescott Road. When you get to the intersection with Cooleyville Road, continue straight onto Cooleyville Road.
If you look for the intersection of Cooleyville Road and Prescott Road in Shutesbury, MA in your favorite Internet atlas, you can follow Cooleyville Road north as it twists and turns and see the four intersections with Daniel Shays Highway.

hey, that's my neck of the woods. you probably passed my house on leverett road (prescott that turns into cooleyville eventually becomes leverett (or maybe cooleyville and leverett are different branches from prescott) before morphing into shutesbury road).

i always thought there were multiple cooleyville roads because they were too lazy to create new names. didn't know it was the same, pervasive thoroughfare.

I know what!
I think you should do a separate food blog.
If you think it's too much work then you and Dave can do a separate food blog together :)

You are calling me lazy after asking me to provide a link to my favorite Internet atlas? That's the pot calling the kettle black.

Actually, my favorite internet atlas is Google Maps. Unfortunately, they don't provide a way to link to a particular destination like mapquest.

Of course they do. There's a link on the page that says "link to this page".

As for the roads intersecting:

"I need to go to Amboy Avenue."

"In Rahway, Woodbridge, Perth Amboy, Metuchen, Edison or Staten Island?"

Here in L.A., many of the freeways were built to "replace" the roads they run next to. The 405 replaced Sepulveda Blvd., the 210 replaced Foothill Blvd., the 5 replaced San Fernando Rd., and the 55 replaced Carbon Cyn Rd., to name a few... so naturally, all of them continually pass over the roads they replaced. I believe there are ten exits for Sepulveda Blvd. on the 405. They've been adding exit numbers, but they're useless until Caltrans finishes (exit 65 on the 405, for example, is between Burbank Blvd and Sherman Way, which I assume would be 64 and 66, respectively, but aren't signed yet).

We just say "Go down the 405 past the 90 to Sepulveda" or "Go up the 210 and exit at the Foothill Blvd. just past Sunland Blvd."
