Photo detail

A road sign on Old Highway 12 mistakenly denotes the roadway as being "Vintage Loop." The highway designation was proposed earlier in the design phase for phase 6 of the new U.S. Highway 12, but later dropped. The Washington state Department of Transportation, which put up the sign, will be replacing the marker in the near future, Walla Walla County officials have said. (July 8, 2010)
