Mile-based numbering often presents a problem: to use or not to use exit 0.
If it is not used, you usually have at least 1.5 miles of exit 1*, or you
modify it so exit 1* is only before mile, exit 2* is before mile 2, etc.
Here is a full list of which states use exit 0.
Y=yes, N=no, NX=no but there are no places with multiple exits at the
beginning that would favor an exit 0, NP=no, takes the number at a terminus

AL Y
AZ N
AR NP

Umm, the Wheeling Island exit on I-70 is Exit 0.

Isn't there still an Exit 0 on the Purchase Parkway in Kentucky? (I seem to
remember one when I was up that way 18 months ago.) You have Texas listed
as using Exit 0 -- but where? (It's not on I-30, I-37, or I-45 -- those are
the three Texas interstates I've been to the ends of, so far.)

The beginning of Kentucky's parkways are usually given the "Exit 0"
number.

Yes. On my long-neglected Purchase Parkway page
(http://www.users.mis.net/~hbelkins/PurchasePkwy.html) You'll see that
there is, indeed, an Exit 0, for KY 116 and KY 166.

...at the south or west end, I'd presume, but the Pennyrile starts at Exit 7
(because of the original plan to extend it south to I-24 from US 41 south of
Hopkinsville), the Cumberland doesn't have an Exit 0 at I-65, and I don't
remember an Exit 0 on the Daniel Boone the last time I traveled it six years
ago...

What is odd is that IL labels the exits at the end of I-474 as A/B, not
1A/1B or 0A/0B.. just A/B. IIRC, there is an exit 1 on either IL 6 or
I-474.

Oregon could be marked NX, there are a couple places where an exit 0
would work. OR-22 in Salem has Exits 1A and 1B at the spot where the
I-5 interchange/overpass is, which is also the point where the mile
posts start from zero and increment in both the east & west
directions. I think US-26 in Portland may be mileposted like this too.

I-540 is kind of a wierd exception to this:

Originally, it ended with Exit 1 A/B at I-40. After it was extended
north towards Fayetteville, the exit was renumbered 15 (though there
are also still signs noting it as Exit 1).

Iowa actually seems to use both forms. At the southern terminus of
I-380 is Exit 0. See Jason Hancock's page:

http://iowahwypix.tripod.com/ic/80-380b.jpg

I don't know about the northern (Western?) terminus of I-74. Anyone
else?

> If it is not used, you usually have at least 1.5 miles of exit 1*

I-29, I-129 and I-480 all have exits less than 1/2 mile from the border.
They are all named exit 1.

I-35 has an exit at the Missouri border. It is exit 114 (Mo numbering).

I-80 has two exits within 1.5 miles of Nebraska:
Exit 1A = I-29 @ 0.2 miles
Exit 1B = 24th Street @ 1.4 miles

Hmmm - looks like TX uses exit 0 in rural areas but not urban areas. Or
maybe it's only in the western part of the state.

Actually NX would mean that there's no place like that.

That might be why I-45 doesn't have an Exit 0 on the Island, even though
the 0 mile point is where the on-ramps from 61st Street hit the end of I-45

worth, the only exits on the Island are 1A (61st), 1B (71st), and 1C
(Teichman Road/Harborside Blvd) -- the last of which is just a few hundred
feet before the Mile 2 post. If the exits were numbered correctly, 61st

The end of I-85 has no exit tabs.
I-65's South end is indeed signed as Exit 0.

ISTR that US 101 in WA has a freeway section near its end in Olympia.
Does it have exit numbers, and if so, which way do they go? (101 is
unique in having two "south ends"; if it were mileposted in WA, one of
the ends would have to be done backwards.)

Looks like my memory failed me. I thought that the beginning of the
Natcher Parkway and Cumberland Parkway were both numbered exit 0. The
Audubon Parkway at the Pennyrile _IS_ numbered 0. As is the afore
mentioned exit on the Purchase. The other parkways appear to use 1 as
their first exit, also with the other mentioned exception of the
Pennyrile. Also as previously mentioned in this newsgroup, planning
appears to be moving ahead on constructing an extension of the Pennyrile
to I-24.

The Pennyrile and I-24 finally meeting? That's got to be one of the Seven
Signs. (I spent a lot of my childhood summers a little farther west in Trigg
County, having great-grandparents there, and remember the hoopla when the
Pennyrile opened -- finally, you could get from Hopkinsville to somewhere else
on something *other* than a *&^%\$#@! two-lane road, even if it was only
Madisonville and Henderson. :-) I've never been on the Natcher, but since US
68 is Exit 5 on it, and I-65 is about five miles southeast of there, I'd
wonder just how the exit at I-65 is numbered. The Cumberland, as you
mentioned, uses 1 for its end at I-65 -- and who knows what it'll be numbered
as if it's designated as I-66. (That's assuming I-66 winds up extending west
of I-65.)

--PLH, who'll settle for a routing of I-69 to be decided so I can start
figuring the exit numbers in the Houston area

According to this map, it is exit 1:

Again there is already planning studies for choosing a route west of the
Cumberland Parkway. The Bowling Green Daily News has found that residents
generally like the plans for a new road. There is a log of information

Thanks for the updates...this is one of those things you've seen planned for
years, but nothing ever happens, and just when you figure it's been relegated
to history's dustbin, it pops back up.

That'll pay for a sliver of the development at 41 that will have to be
relocated.

Yep...that's my native Commonwealth, all right -- consistently inconsistent.

I'm sure the people in Bowling Green would, because at present there's no real
access around the area to the north of town, and the improved US 68 doesn't
kick in until you're out past the Natcher. What happens out west of there,
though? I-66 could be justified to I-24 in Trigg County, maybe, but after
that, it'd be a stretch, at best. 68 doesn't have the AADT to justify an
Interstate corridor (of course, that could partly be because it's still two
lanes from Cadiz westward, including across the LBL), but maybe if it could
share I-24 to Paducah and then split off westward into Missouri along the
I-57/US 60 corridor and end up at I-44 in Springfield...that might be doable.
(I'm not expecting to live long enough to see that.)

--PLH, then again, I didn't think I'd live to see US 119 finished from
Pineville to Cumberland, either

The last exits of I-74 and I-280 are unnumbered now, but until about
1988, both of them were Exits 1A-B. (And the US 6 exit for I-280 used
to be Exit 1C; it's now just Exit 1.)

There are plans to improve US 60/KY 80 through the Land Between the
Lakes. Technically I-66 through the Land Between the Lakes is still a
possibility.

I've thought that the reconstruction of US 68/KY 80 from Bowling Green to
Cadiz should have been to I-standards, but unfortunately it was not. Now
there is a nice four lane road, but unfortunately most of it probably
wouldn't be useful for extending I-66 along a more southern corridor.
corridor.

There is a little bit about US 68/KY 80 and LBL at:
