The road sign says...

   +--------------------------+
   | Foothills Blvd         5 |
   | Yuma                  19 |
   | San Diego            196 |
   +--------------------------+
   the numbers are:  5  19  196

   the math is:  19 - 5 = sqrt(196)

   more math:  19 % sqrt(196) = 5

   rsHwyEval:  sqrt(196) - 5! % 19 = 8
   * This road sign was found on I-8

   BARSfunc rsHwyEval:  spf(196 - summation(5, 19)) = 8
   * This road sign was found on I-8

   observe...
      summation(5, 19) = 5+6+7+...+17+18+19 = 180
      spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
      spf(196 - 180) = spf(16) = 2+2+2+2 = 8

   rsDupEval:  summation(5, sqrt(196)) = dup(5) * 19

   observe...
      dup(5) = 5
      summation(5, sqrt(196)) = summation(5, 14) = 5+6+7+...+12+13+14 = 95
