Malfunction Junction

While surveying the designated campsites near Malfunction Junction (the curious intersection of highways 73 and 9), I found two examples of "civilization" seemingly in the middle of nowhere:
  1. One illegible street sign (6' tall steel pole with a metal sign measuring apprx. 5"x24").
  2. Four concrete fence posts (about 6"x6"x4' with two drill holes in each and spaced 4-5' apart).

Inset in the photo is the 1955 USGS map of the intersection. It shows an unimproved road running west to east, from route 73 to 9. The fence posts are located where the road appears to cross the South Fork Boquet. However the street sign doesn't correspond to anything.

Anyone here familiar with that area circa 1955? Can you tell me anything about that road, the fence posts, or the street sign?

I used the term "street sign" but that's just a guess about its original purpose. It's definitely not homemade and looks like something official from NYS DOT. The sign's green paint has faded over time.

(I have photos of the fence posts and sign if someone absolutely needs to see them for proper identification.)
Looking for views!
