Re: Freeway exits whose numbers match the number of the road they access?
« Reply #125 on: June 22, 2020, 04:29:50 AM »

Hi, so I was recently wondering something: how many freeway exits might there be with a number that's the same as that of the road the exit serves? I know of at least three:

  • In Arkansas, I-40 Exit 64 leads to US 64 near Lamar.
  • In Connecticut, I-91 Exit 5 serves US 5 in New Haven.
  • In Indiana, I-65 Exit 50 accesses US 50 near Seymour.

What other such exits might there be around the country? I'd be interested to know.

There was at least one thread on this back in the m.t.r days.
The most obvious is likely to be exits on to CASR-1. California exits are numbered from the west and CASR-1 frequently runs as west as you can get.  The problem is that a number of freeways end before they get to it.

One example is Exit 1B (or is it 1A) for CASR-1 on CASR-17.

I-435 Exit 71A in the Grandview Triangle leads to US-71 South (plus I-470, I-49, and US-50). East/North I-435 has Exit 71B for US-71 NB.

A couple other close calls:
  • I-35 Exit 76 for US-77 near El Dorado, KS.
  • I-29 Exit 8 for MO-9 in Kansas City.

Another IL near-miss example: Exit 58A is for 59th St off the Dan Ryan Expressway/I-90/94 on Chicago’s South Side

Thruway Exit 59 is for NY 60.

For some reason, close ones (one number off) seem to be easier to find than actual examples, even though statistically they should occur with equal frequency.

Wouldn't it be double the frequency, since you can be off by +1 or −1?

Whoops... yep, of course. My bad.  :coffee:

If you’re coming from the south on I-25 in Springer, NM and you want US 412 east, you’ll take exit 412. It’s not a perfect example - US 412 ends at BL-25/old US 85 and doesn’t actually intersect I-25 - but it’s the first thing that came to mind.

Exit 1 for CR 1E on I-29 in North Dakota (while in South Dakota):
What's with the gate and the "closed when flashing" sign?  I don't see anything obvious - flooding problems at that culvert a little way down?

That would be a fun one to include in directions - "Then get off exit 414 for 441 and 41...."

Not knowing the Dakotas as I have never traveled thru them...But interstates in that part of the country are known to have gates, basically for closing the road in blizzard-like conditions, I believe

If km based mileposts and exit numbers are used, I-465 exit 70 would be for I-70.

One for Illinois that wasn't previously mentioned is Exit 1 on I-94 for Russell Road, which now has signage labelling it Lake County A1. The exit really should labeled be Exit 0 though.  :pan:

And this is definitely cheating, but US-20 can be accessed from Exit 20, Irene Road off I-90. It's a few hundred feet north of the interchange. The real exit for US-20, which that would also technically be cheating, is Exit 17.
