Changing the Ohio Turnpike's
Interchange Numbering System


 

WHY?

  • To keep consistent with the federal standard for numbering interchanges on interstate highway systems.
  • To alleviate confusion from the irregular sequence of numerical references as several new interchanges were added over the past decade. (Example: A patron traveling eastbound on the Turnpike would encounter interchanges numbered 3, 3B, 3A.)
  • To assist motorists in determining their travel times and distances.
  • To assist our maintenance and towing crews, as well as fire, EMS and the Ohio State Highway Patrol in locating stranded motorists or potential accident victims.

HOW?

Using the federal numbering system, which uses milepost numbers to reference interchanges,the Strongsville-Cleveland Interchange (formerly No. 10) will become Interchange No. 161 because it is located at milepost 161.8 on the Turnpike. In each case, the tenth of a mile (of the exact interchange mileage) will be dropped in favor of the whole number. Most maps and other travel guides are currently using the milepost numbers to indicate Turnpike interchanges. The current Turnpike signs list the milepost number first, followed by the old interchange number. The old interchange numbers will be removed after Labor Day, 2002.
