This is the rare time I really love some of Washington’s unconventional signage. This shield is a textbook-conventional alternate highway sign. You’ve got dual banners and everything. I kind of like the elegant integrated ALT 97 signs used otherwise. This, while completely correct, is terribly boring. I’d recommend revising the MUTCD to use Washington’s ALT 97 for bannered routes, putting the ALT or SPUR or BIPASS or BUSINESS or rare CITY inside the shield

JCT SR 971 coming up here really quickly
Location: US-97 ALT and S Lakeshore Rd, Lakeside, Chelan Cty
Exit right for SR 971, which loops around through Lake Chelan State Park back to 97 ALT. If they were really cool, they would have called it Alternate US-97 Alternate.
