Mapping. Many web sites allow you to keep track of all kinds of
experiences, from birds you have seen to counties you have visited and
even paper money you have handled. This site allows users to map which
portions of interstate highways they have travelled, or "clinched," and
calculates how many miles of the Interstate Highway System they have

Interstates get bad press. While two lane county roads that are barely
paved get romaticized, the backbone of the US highway system gets
called sterile, boring, and- worst of all- unadventurous. Ok, you never
will suddenly discover the best pecan pie you ever ate in your life at
a travel plaza; the best thing you can get is the Worlds Largest
McDonalds on I-44. Yet somehow the people who make those claims miss
the larger point.

Highways. Primary interstate highways in the United States have
one- or two-digit numbers, such as I-5 and I-84. Three-digit interstate
highways, or 3di's, branch off or loop with the primary routes. A 3di
takes the number of its parent and adds a multiple of 100: I-405 loops
with I-5, and I-384 veers off from I-84. While there are about 65
primary interstates, there are over 200 3di's , mostly in or around
cities. Over 30 others, such as San Francisco's Embarcadero (I-480) or
Boston's Inner Belt (I-695) have been killed, a couple have been
decommissioned (converted to state or US highways), and a handful are

|Route 40 Milestones.
For more than 2,000 years, highway builders have erected milestone to
indicate the distance to and from key landmarks such as cities, towns
and geographic features. During the past two millennia, roadside
signage has undergone an evolution. For most of this time, roads have
been delineated with stone markers. During the past 150-200 years,
wooden fingerboards began replacing milestones due their low cost and
the ease with which they can be constructed. During the early
automobile era, metal signs emerged. Of these, the porcelain enamel
signs proved to be the most enduring of the modern signs. In recent
years, highway departments have used a variety of media to mark
highways, most of which have an expected life span of about 2-5 years.
This site is dedicated to the study of milestones.
