Exit Number Challenge
« on: April 26, 2016, 09:31:00 AM »

Since we're doing route numbers, let's do exit numbers as well. Let's see how many consecutive exit numbers we can find.

Rules:

1. An eligible picture is a picture of a Big Green Sign clearly showing the exit number and the target route(s) and/or destination(s). Gore signs do not count.

2. One picture per person per post.

3. When you post a valid exit sign, you must wait at least 5 numbers before you can post another valid exit sign, unless I grant you an override.

4. Google Street View is allowed. GSV images must clearly show the exit number and destination information on the sign.

5. If you have a picture that you took yourself in the wild, you can override a picture from GSV or one found by Internet search. For example, if the last number was 4, and an Exit 4 was snapped or linked from Street View, and you have your own picture of an Exit 4 sign, you can "override" the GSV image and post your picture; you do not have to advance to Exit 5.

6. Exits with two numbers count only for one number.

7. Subletters (e.g. "Exit 1A") do not matter.

We start with Exit 0 in Jeffersonville, Indiana.

3. Once you post, you must wait at least 5 numbers before you can post again, unless I grant you an override.

Clarification: Because I'm making a post now, I won't be able to post again until Exit 5 is shown? Or does the 5+ rule only apply to images?

Post a picture. There's no picture in your post. I'll clarify the rule.

Does the sign have to be a sign that still exists?  If not, then the picture for 0 is not valid.

No, neither the sign nor the exit has to still exist. (It must have been a real exit at some point.)

I keep reading it as "blister-field."

This game would be more fun if it required mileage-based exit signs and disallowed sequential signs.

Anyway, here's Kentucky's newest Exit 10.

Here's a brand new sign on the Garden State Parkway that replaces an at-grade intersection. The GSP is now fully expressway all the way to Exit 0

Going for the thread record for most US highway shields on a matching exit number sign.

for Exit 14, I present a remnant of OH 126 when it was routed along Glendale-Milford Rd.:
P1160502 by Ryan busman_49, on Flickr

This stretch of 126 was re-routed to the Ronald Reagan Expressway in the 1990s.  The signs had the shields removed but are still happily serving their purpose.

The interchange with U.S. 25 was reconfigured from a folded diamond into a standard diamond to accommodate the adjacent new interchange for Interstate 520 (Palmetto Parkway).
