From the MUTCD 2009 Edition, Section 2E.31 Interchange Exit Numbering
Interchange exit numbering provides valuable orientation for the road user on a freeway or expressway. The feasibility of numbering interchanges or exits on an expressway will depend largely on the extent to which grade separations are provided. Where there is appreciable continuity of interchange facilities, interrupted only by an occasional intersection at grade, the numbering will be helpful to the expressway user.

There are many non-Interstate freeway facilities in the Empire State, especially upstate, that could warrant the addition of interchange numbering. Example routes include US 219, NY 33, NY 49 and more. Interchange numbering should be implemented over a 10 year period during normal sign replacement projects (much like the CalTrans effort in California).

The motorist is generally not attentive to whether a freeway is marked with an interstate or other route designation. ALL freeway facilities should have numbered exits. The above example would appear on NY Route 8 northbound in the Utica area at reference location 8-2607-1141. There has never been an advance guide sign for the referenced interchange in this direction.

The majority of graphics have been created by the author, some graphics are via sources on the web (and credited accordingly) or by photos provided by author. Sign graphics use the official FHWA typeface available from Page Studio Graphics. There are slight differences between this and the Roadgeek Series of fonts (which are used on the exit guides due to availability purposes), especially FHWA Series D in mixed case. I don't have the money nor the interest in purchasing the official set of Clearview fonts, I rely on the Roadgeek font series for those. Interstate shield graphics, "<- New!" graphic and some cultural, destination and facility symbols courtesy of Richard Moeur's site . US and New York state route template courtesy of Chris Jordan. The exit guide lists are inspired by the format on Arizona Roads . The "N Y Routes" link will lead you off site to Mark Sinsabaugh's site . His listing is the most accurate and his haircut is top notch. "The Roads of New York" and "Empire State Roads" will take you off-site as well. Special mention goes to the folks at the New York State Department of Transportation and the New York State Thruway Authority for their assistance. Additional site credits can be found here.
