Unusual U turn sign

I have never saw a U Turn sign like this. Areas that do not allow truck U Turns typically have a plain rectangular sign that says "No Truck U Turns". Areas that ban U Turns altogether usually have the U Turn symbol in a red circle with a slash through it.


This one-mile section of Eastown Road was opened in October 2009 after having construction start in 2005. This road does not really seem to lead to any major place and there is nothing on the road. I did notice a couple buildings under construction though. This stretch of road appears like it was built up to city bypass standards and has a speed limit of 45 MPH though few vehicles seemed to be driving on it. The way this road is constructed makes me wonder if it is part of some kind of western Lima bypass route but this road does not seem to lead anywhere. If this is planned to be be a bypass route in the future it would have to have at least a four mile extention just to reach Interstate 75.
