They have new signs on that corner, and they also have a little bronze plaque telling why the streets are named This Way and That Way.

In the middle of Lake Jackson there are two streets named This way and That way. Kinda Funny. Which way?

[Joanna, 03/05/2007]

Lake Jackson was built as a company town for the Dow Chemical Co. Its winding street grid was designed by Alden Dow, the boss's son. When Alden asked his secretary for help naming the streets, she answered, "Don't ask me. You've got all these streets going this way and that way." The town also has an Any Way. It used to have a Which Way and a Run Way (by the airport) but these have since been renamed.
