Some guy who builds bridges googled it and then we googled it and found out what it was
We would never have guessed that in 100 years
My husband and I have been traveling that road for 20 years and could never find out what that meant so thank you to Mr. Google

I have always wanted to know what those numbers meant
my husband and I have traveled I 40 for 20 years and could never come up with what it was
then I just googled it and it was easy as 123

We passed by the signs on a trip to International Mascot Competition at Daytona Beach. We wondered about them, and after some discussion, forgot about them. Today we passed them again and decided to see if we could find out what they were. The explanation made perfect sense but our guesses were more entertaining! Then we discovered the blogs! Thanks for the info and the laughs!

You have to love posts criticizing the grammar or spelling of others, because invariably they contain errors of their own. That should be "your" instead of "you're" and "who" instead of "that," Mr. Wizard.
Way to go, CHUCKYGRAMMAR.

I was just trying too figure out how this JimmyTwoToes knew this at 6 and still ended up on this forum? Seems the rest of us on here googled the question about what these signs were....haha thank for the humor Jimmy!

Ok help me here folks, my wife and I looking for an answer.

In or around Canton (not sure the exit) there are a series of brown signs along the west bound lanes of I-40....the number from 1-10 then 10-1...some of them face west bound and 1 set faces east bound but all the signs are along the right side of the west bound lanes of I-40.

Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks! We have passed by these numbers for 20 years and could not think of a reason for them. Mystery solved!!!
Thanks

Why do some people have to throw something rude and uneducated into a place that others are trying to simply find out the answer to a question? Oh well, it just shows their lack of things to do other than troll the Internet looking for a way to make themselves feel better and try to be something they aren't, like, um, smart!!!
Speaking of rude, I just blasted a nasty ripper from between my violently vibrating buttocks. It stained my BVD'S a dirty brown and left a hefty skid mark on my tuff nut jeans. How disgusting!

My wife and I were wondering the same thing on our drives into and out of Asheville for our honeymoon. Great to know we weren't alone in our confusion.

"On your ON"??? If you're counting is as bad as your grammar then maybe you could use these signs to learn some things. I'd rather be a BACKWOODS hick who is curious about numbered signs on the highway than a dumbass that can't spell.
