It also says EXIT ONLY, as if it were the only location/destination on the highway for that direction. 
“Nothing is listed for Poulsbo, the Kingston ferry, or the later exit for Bainbridge. Anyone not familiar with the area would be clueless as to how to reach those destinations, given the lack of signage.
