Illinois Interstate 355 route marker. Up for sale today is this Interstate 355 route marker, from Illinois. Made to the exact 1961 standard from the origins of the Eisenhower interstate highway system. The wider shields came with the revision of 1961 – previously, three-digit route markers were the same size as two-digit, but with narrower numerals. This design was supplanted by the modern shield style – often with the state name omitted! – in 1971, and it gets harder and harder to find the original-style interstate route markers in many states. This particular route runs through the western and southwestern suburbs of Chicago for 32.5 mi. (52.3 km) from its intersection with Interstate 80 in New Lenox to the intersection with Interstate 290 in Itasca. I can, of course, make this sign with any route or destination of your choice. Here is your chance to own a beautiful sign commemorating all the fun you and your loved ones have had along this lovely route, without breaking the bank. I can make any destination sign; inquire about your home town! The sign is flat printed on steel, with completely accurate layout and fonts. It weighs about 13 lb. And is 28 by 24 inches.
