But, I don't know if there is a state by state consensus on mile markers is there?
I wish there was a state by state concensus on the installation of mile markers on state mandated highways. They’re much more important than people realize.

Yeah, i think that's correct. You'll have to used the exits or memtal note of each place you've pass by. More details later.

The interesting thing is, the exits don’t even have numbers, making it even harder. Thankfully the geography of the state isn’t too difficult to learn and know where certain cities are. But mike markers are DEFINITELY a necessity on any state or nationally-mandated highway, no matter which state it is.

The exits should be used as reference point. I agree with you for out of state travelers I'm a local of that area so I'm familiar with the layout.

The only problem is, to use exit numbers, they’d have to use the mile markers that begin at the MS River in US 82. That is, if the entire stretch was built up to interstate highway standards. Only the stretch from Starkville to the AL state line is built up to such.

it is actually less critical now than in years past, all you have to do is open google maps and it will give your exact location. and most all counties have E-911 so calling in they can pinpoint you fairly accurately. But yes, I do agree with you that mile markers should be in place. of course the idiots driving the grass cutters would keep mowing them down like everything else in their path...….

Yeah unfortunately. I also believe that mile markers and mileage signs have equal importance, due to the similar purpose for their construction and installation. MDOT seems to be lacking in mileage signs somewhat, but not nearly as much as mile markers on local highways. These mile markers should be installed in the case of a road emergency, say where time is the essence, like in a car accident so that local authorities can know where you are right there and then. You are absolutely right though about E-911, as they can find you very easily.
