You might have a problem with some other toll roads, depending on 
whether the designs pass the threshold of originality (and whether any 
signs were posted sans copyright notice before 1989). (You also would 
have had a problem with the Trans-Canada Highway if you were doing this 
5 years ago, but Crown copyright on the logo expired in 2009 at the 
latest.) Normal state route shields should all be public domain per the 
MUTCD introduction.
