    Are U.S. Interstate highways numbered according to a pattern?

    INTERSTATE HIGHWAYS: Under the plan developed for a national interstate highway system during the Eisenhower administration, interstate highways (marked with the familiar red-and-blue shields) are numbered according to the following rules:
    • Major interstate highways are identified by one- or two-digit numbers. North-south routes are assigned odd numbers, with the numbers growing larger from west to east; east-west routes are assigned even numbers, with the numbers growing larger from south to north.

          After some types of disasters the landscape changes drastically and typical landmarks may not be visible or even there any longer.

          Great thread, knowing direction is very important with alread limited resources.
