However, there are a few exceptions... that is, a few places where CDoT does co-sign US routes along interstates. For example, US 160 is well-signed along I-25 between Trinidad and Walsenburg. Also, in Denver, the segment of I-70 between I-25 and Vasquez Boulevard is triple-signed with US 6 and US 85 shields. (Which is kind of a sick joke, because there are no signs instructing drivers following those routes to get on I-70 in the first place!) Since that portion of I-70 is slated to be rebuilt starting in 2018, I wanted to document the condition of the signs before they are removed. (I would be very surprised if US 6 and US 85 were still co-signed along the new I-70 after it is rebuilt.) Heading westbound on I-70, the first such sign assembly is shown in this photo:
The upcoming interchange is where US 6-85 traffic exits and heads north on Steele to Vasquez. But again: neither US 6 traffic (heading east on the 6th Avenue Freeway) nor US 85 traffic (heading north on Santa Fe Drive) is instructed to head north on I-25 and then east on I-70 to reach this point, so these assemblies are kind of pointless.
