Location: US-18 and US-385, Oelrichs

As I drove through here in July 2013, the expressway was still in the process of being twinned and traffic was redirected to the new (future northbound) carriageway, so the signs are on the other side of the road. Turn right for 18 east. Stay straight for 385/79 south.
