New York interstate 87 sign.

1966 specification highway marker.

La Prairie, Quebec.

These are still the old Quebec shields, before the grand renumbering. What is now Autoroute 10, was still the Autoroute des Cantons de L’est, and its shield was a red triangle. What really fascinated me was that the guide signs specific to that route in the distance were also red. I know that other toll autoroutes had a similar triangular shield in different colors, including blue and green (BGS, BBS and BRS – sheesh!). Would those guide signs be matched to the toll road color? Of course an Interstate shield in Canada is always something special.
