Sign photos from Arizona.

Description Photographer Date
I-17 Exit 236. Arizona has the best freeway signage in the United States, hands down. 99% of the signs are designed to published specifications and consistency is the name of the game. I compare all signage to the standard set by Arizona. Earl Cochran May 2006
I-17 Exit 242. Business Route I-17 to Rock Springs and Black Canyon City. Earl Cochran May 2006
I-17 Exit 252. Unique sign for Sunset Point scenic overlook and rest area. Earl Cochran May 2006
I-17 Exit 262. No arrow? No mileage? Actually, this is a secondary destination sign. In New York, the "EXIT 262" would be on the bottom line. I prefer this method of signing. I don't think I would fit into NYSDOT very well as a traffic engineer. Earl Cochran May 2006
I-17 Exit 278. 1/2 mile advance sign for AZ 169 - Cherry Rd. Notice the clean, unobstructed legend for "Cherry Rd". Earl Cochran May 2006
I-17 Exit 278. And here's the sign for the exit ramp. The arrow on the side of the exit ramp is pretty standard through a good share of the country. Earl Cochran May 2006
I-17 Exit 298. Major interchanges get a "2 miles" advance sign. Sedona is a very popular tourist destination, so this sign is completely justified. Earl Cochran May 2006
I-17 Exit 340. Here we are approaching the northern end of I-17 at I-40 near Flagstaff. The control cities of Los Angeles and Albuquerque give the highway a "cross country" feel. Earl Cochran May 2006
I-17 McGuireville Rest Area. A dedication plaque at the McGuireville Rest Area. The dedication is to the engineering achievements of James Bell Girand. Earl Cochran May 2006
I-17 Mileage Sign. Many states limit the post interchange mileage sign to two destinations, but personally I prefer the three line approach: the next exit, the next major intersection, and the next major city. Earl Cochran May 2006
