That's funny. Is it frequent that streets get the fractional names?

I've only seen "half" streets in Galveston, TX-- P 1/2 is practically an alley way and the source of some amusement to visitors.

This sign was in the small, rural community of Barronette, Wisconsin, right on the mainhighway. We're in the northwest part of the state, and I've seen some 'half' numbers, but nothing like this. Bob from Wis.

That is silly. The obvious question now is whether there was a 7 14/16th street and 7 16/16th (8th) street? Otherwise, I think somebody in that town has lost their mind. Of course, they could probably find it againonJefferson 23/45 street.

I've read about this.
It was employed as a new method to teach the locals about maths.
If it proves efficient we may begin to see more like these round the world as other countries struggle to keep up with the new Mathematics Age.

Nah. The French would insist on going metric. They'd have "Rue du 29.625"
