Can somebody at the MTQ can explain why they decide to give exit number 85 to the ramps going towards Chemin de Riviere-Verte? Normally, the exit number is corresponding to the place the road is crossing the highway, like at the overpass/underpass.  But in this case, the km marker, at the underpass, is 86.5, so it would be exit 86, not 85.  This situation caused some confusion, because the contractor had to place some more signs to indicate the exit 85 is not highway A-85.

But who would confuse an exit number (in yellow) with an Autoroute shield (in blue)?

The same people that caused Louisiana to post "TO-I-59" trailblazers at the LA-59/I-12 intersection.  Apparently people don't know the difference between a 2 to 4 lane side road with a green state shield with the outline of the state of Louisiana and a red, white and blue shield that signs a 4-lane limited access freeway. 

I guess that's a holdover from old directions "hang a left on 59!"

AsphaltPlanet:
A series of supplemental through signs were installed at the Westney Road interchange in Ajax along the 401 because Westney Road is Exit # 401.  Presumably someone was confused about the exit number:



Never underestimate the power of human stupidity.

Kinda sad to see a toll era interchange go, but I get why they'd reconstruct it.

For some nostalgia, here the former toll booth on A-10 at Marieville.
