New LA milepost
« on: June 06, 2009, 09:27:44 PM »

I noticed over the weekend DOTD putting up new mileposts along the I-10 in the city. Will try to get pics as soon as possible. They are similar to the ones in Tennessee that have the shield over the direction and then the mile. They are also expanding the use of those highway shield pavement markers, putting them in some places that aren't necessary IMHO. Has anybody seen these type of milepost anywhere else around the state?

Florida is also beginning to use similar mile markers along Interstate 75 in Hernando and Pasco Counties. I noticed these when I made a trek down to southwest Florida this past weekend:


Interstate 75 southbound at mile marker 304 in Hernando County. Photo taken 06/05/09.

Interstate 275 also uses these same type of mile markers from its interchange with Interstate 75 near Palmetto into the Tampa area.

^^ It's not just the southeast.  I've seen that style of mile marker popping up on I-80 in Pennsylvania.

GDOT's been installing those, too -- on I-75, I-85 and I-20 inside of the Perimeter.


Be well,

I know PennDOT uses something similar to that, or maybe used to, I'm not sure.

Maine introduced those around 2004. I believe they are ITS type mile markers, similar to the blue ones used in Tennessee and Indiana.

It seems as if they are putting them every 2/10 of a mile

DOTD put up 2/10 mile markers on I-10 between the Basin Bridge and Port Allen (minus the I-10 shield) three years ago.

Wow I really like those new mileposts!  And the best part is we got nice ones like the rest of the country has! 

/glad to see that's a standard milepost on I-10 and same as the MP 304 pic above.

Michigan's got them, they're replacing all milepost with them. There are actually two types here, the rural type that look like the pics and an urban version that are posted every 2/10 of a mile.

Example:

I-79 has several of them as well.

They recently put some 1/10th mile markers on I-20 in Monroe on the Ouachita River bridge.  They are smaller than std milepost signs w/o the interstate shield.
