Interstate 84 using fractional mile markers

(1/3) > >>

OCGuy81:
What appears to be the first (from what Iíve seen) on an Oregon freeway, it appears interstate 84 is using mileposts every half mile now. I didnít take much notice until I saw what I initially thought was milepost 405 (as opposed to 40.5)

It's not the first, I remember seeing decimal mileposts on OR 217 back in the mid 2000s on a trip to Oregon. Looks like they are still there, though I'm not sure if they were the enhanced mile markers like shown in the most recent streetview back then, so that may be newer.

Still good to know that I-84 has some now too though! Thanks for letting us know. Were the ones on I-84 regular mileposts, or the enhanced type with shields and cardinal direction like the 217 ones?

And I bet it's still the first Interstate that has them. I know for a fact that the whole of I-5 and I-205 didn't have them as of 2019 at the very least.

They were regular mileposts, without the shield. I'll try and get some pictures next time I get out that way.

Does it look like what Indiana uses on their rural interstates?

Yep! Thatís exactly what the ones on 84 look like.
