BARS::Exit 4 on US Hwy-95 in Maine

This road sign is on northbound US Hwy-95 in Maine and MathBabbler got a picture of the road sign off the TV.

The road sign says...

   +-------------+
   | Left Exit 4 |
   +----------------------------------------+
   | US Hwy-4 ME Hwy-16     North US Hwy-95 |
   | Newington                   Portsmouth |
   | Dover                        Maine Pts |
   |           1 1/4 miles (2.0 km)         |
   +----------------------------------------+
   the numbers are:  4  4  16  95  (1 1/4)  2

   the math is:  sqrt(95 / (1 1/4) - 16 + 4) / 4 = 2

   more math:  log((1 1/4) * 4 + 95) * 4 * 2 = 16

   rsPhiEval:  (log(sqrt(95 + sqrt(16) + 4 / 4)) / 2 + sqrt(1 1/4) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   rsPiEval:  (95 * 2 - (1 1/4 * 4) * sqrt(16 / 4)) degrees = Pi radians
   * 180 degrees = 3.14159265 radians

   rsHwyEval:  95 * log((1 1/4 * 16 / 2) * 4 / 4 = 95
   * This road sign was found on US Hwy-95

   rsTweetLenEval:  95 * 2 - (1 1/4 * 4)^sqrt(4) * sqrt(sqrt(16)) = 140
   * 140 is the maximum length of a Twitter posting (tweet).

   ... Maine was the 23rd state admitted to the Union and
       there has been check for a rsStateEval...

   ... MathBabber saw this sign on TV when he was 53 years
       young and he created this BARS when he was 54 and
       there as been on check for a rsAgeEval...
