Who chose the numbers for our freeways, highways, roads, etc?

where can i find info on uk based companies who provide nitros tuning for cars?

The interstates are numbered, somewhat orderly, odds going north and south, evens going east and west. The evens begin in the south (I-10) and get larger as you head north. The odds begin out west (I-5) and get larger as you head east (I-95).

Why do people hate Skoda cars?


For bypasses on interstates, the first number even means around a city, the first number odd means through a city.
In DC - I-95 goes north south, the beltway around DC is 495;
the highway through the middle is (partially) 395. This part of the numbering convention is not as closely adhered to as the E/W or N/S one.
