Default What do you call the highway

The intersects the Historic District and Spanish Springs? The two threads on the many local roads with ''4" in them and the one about Chili's location made me wonder...

I always call the dratted thing 27. Not 441/27. Not 441. Too often, 466 will slip out instead and then the person I'm talking to will be super confused about where the "Sam's Club on 466" is.

Y'all would know what I mean by 27, right? I'm trying to start a trend.

I think most around here call it 441 (as do I), but I would know what you meant by 27.

usually 441; sometimes 441/27, sometimes 27/441, never 27/441/500.

It depends on the traffic flow as to what I call it.

I will always refer to the highway in question as 441. I lived in south Florida for 25 years and part of my stomping ground was 441. It's the same 441 that runs through The Villages so that's why I refer to it as 441.

Then in Bellviewe it's called 27/441/301. As long as you get where you want to go, call it anything you like.

I call it 441 because I have a little OCD and the "1" is a vertical number and 441 generally goes North-South or South-North. Also, back in Ohio we had a main N-S road that was called 741. If I am giving directions through Leesburg after the "split" I will say "then continue on 27."

I just remembered something. US Highways are even-numbered East-West & odd-numbered N-S aren't they?

I call it 441, but maybe we should call it The Rubicon because The Villages really started to grow when the developer crossed it.
