Well, IMHO, TxDOT did something right.

Exit 0, in the first mile, on I-40 (Glenrio, TX).

Are there any other states with Exit 0? (Arizona, your I-40 Exit 1 is not
an Exit 1, but an Exit 0...)

Later,

If I recall correctly, the first exit in West Virginia off I-70 is Exit
0 (the deceleration lane eastbound begins on the bridge over the Ohio
River).

On the other hand, the I-75/I-71 split just off the bridge in
Cincinnati, OH is Exit 1A. Most of Cincinnati's downtown expressway
exits occur in the first mile of either I-75 or I-71, and these are
numbered 1A through 1K (shared between both expressways to avoid
confusion: B, C, D, J, and K off 71, the rest off 75).

- The southern terminus of I-69 at I-465 in northeast Indianapolis (actually
"Exits 0A-B" if memory serves me).

- And if I remember correctly from my last drive, the southern terminus of
the I-164 bypass around Evansville, Ind. at US41.

I can't remember if it's still signed as such, but I-89 where it
terminates just south of Concord used to have an "Exit 0" just after
the "Exit 1" that was less than a mile away. The end of I-89 itself
goes to I-93 north and south with a spur continuing into traffic
lights at the US-3 intersection.

Texas: I-40 at Glenrio, exit 0

Iowa and Missouri duck the issue. I-35 has an interchange with US-69 which
is squarely *on* the border. (Yes, I've been there...) Both states refer
to it as Missouri exit 114.

Illinois has an unusual response to the Exit 0 "problem" at Peoria. At the
western end of I-474 (mile 0), the exits to west and east I-74 are marked
simply as "Exit A" and "Exit B" (no number at all).

No, it's no longer marked this way. The sequence is (from west to east):

Exit 2: Clinton Street
Exit 1A: South Street
Exit 1: I-93 N/S
(no number): S Main Street

The first exit from the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal on BC 1/99 was
numbered "Exit 0" at one time, not sure if it still is.

If I'm not mistaken, the western terminus of the Cumberland Parkway at
I-65 north of Bowling Green has Exit 0A and Exit 0B.

The western terminus of the Blue Grass Parkway at I-65 at
Elizabethtown is marked exit 1A and 1B.

I also think the southern terminus of I-81 at I-40 east of Knoxville
is marked Exit 0A and 0B, but I could be mistaken on that one.

Texas's I-10 also has exit 0 at Anthony.

Due to a snafu involving SurfWatch, I was unable to thread this reply properly.

Here's yet another Exit 0 location.

At the Texas / New Mexico border the first exit east of the state line is also
marked 'Exit 0'
