Utah Interchange Ramp Mileposts

(1/3) > >>

US 89:
According to this page on the UDOT website, UDOT will be installing mileposts at certain freeway-to-freeway interchanges:


--- Quote ---UDOT has developed ramp identification signs for some of the state's most complex interchanges to help drivers, dispatchers and emergency responders quickly pinpoint the exact location of an incident - improving mobility and reducing response time.
 
The signs will contain a three-letter code indicating the county, interchange and ramp the sign represents. These signs will be placed every tenth of a mile on freeway-to-freeway ramps for easy visibility to drivers in need of assistance. Exact sign locations will be imported into existing GPS-based dispatch systems.
 
The signs will be rolled out in two initial locations in the Salt Lake Valley before being installed statewide:
 
Airport Interchanges (I-80/Bangerter and I-80/I-215)
Spaghetti Bowl

I've never heard of or seen anything like this before. Hopefully they will be installed at other major area interchanges in the future, like the 80/215/Foothill, 15/89/Legacy, and 15/215 south interchange.

Many (most?) NYSDOT Regions post reference markers on interchange ramps.

I 205 has mp 1 on the end of its on ramp from I 5. Oregon counts on ramps as parts of highways. Although this is not as extreme as what's going on in Utah.

SD Mapman:
I think both KS and MO do this in the greater KC area (like I 70 to I 435 NB or something like that)... must be spreading.

EDIT: Found one, see https://www.google.com/maps/@39.0594651,-94.4891969,3a,20.2y,210.33h,86.57t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sCWqUYyi3_TjkOO6NyJqhhw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

That's not a mile marker, though.
