Titulo do video: “The secret codes behind highway signs”

Interstate highways ; Those are major freeways with blue shields
If They run East to West they use even numbers.
If they run North to South they have odd numbers

The biggest routes end in 0 or 5
The 1st digit is higher the further east and north you go
so I-5 is in the west from CA to Washington State
while 75 runs florida to Michigan
I-10 runs Santa monica to Jacksonville
but I-90, the Longest at 3021 miles goes from Boston to Seattle

3 digit routes are spurs if they start with odd number

Beltways if they start with even numbers
Here is a curve ball: for US highways, the narrower roads with white signs,
it is the mirror opposite; for those roads low numbers start in the East and go West
So Route 1 paralles I-95
while route 101 hugs the pacific
Route 2 goes accross the northern states
route 70 runs from North Carolina to Arizona
These days some old US highways have been phased out in favor of parallel interstates; In fact There is no official Us-Rt 66 anymore
so sorry Sammy* you will just have to drive I-55!

* – Bobby Troup Jrr e o autor de um classico pop americano:
“Route 66”

Aqui esta a letra da musica:

If you ever plan to motor west,
travel my way, take the highway that is best.
Get your kicks on Route sixty-six.

It winds from Chicago to LA,
more than two thousand miles all the way.
Get your kicks on Route sixty-six.

Now you go through Saint Looey
Joplin, Missouri,
and Oklahoma City is mighty pretty.
You see Amarillo,
Gallup, New Mexico,
Flagstaff, Arizona.
Don’t forget Winona,
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino.

Won’t you get hip to this timely tip:
when you make that California trip
Get your kicks on Route sixty-six.

Won’t you get hip to this timely tip:
when you make that California trip
Get your kicks on Route sixty-six. (3x)
