However, there are a few exceptions... that is, a few places where US routes are still signposted along interstates. For example, US 160 is well-signed along I-25 between Trinidad and Walsenburg. Both US 50 and even Business 50 are signed where they overlap I-25 in Pueblo. US 24 is signed along the short segment it shares with I-25 in Colorado Springs:
Also, in Denver, the segment of I-70 between I-25 and Vasquez Boulevard was triple-signed with US 6 and US 85 shields. (Which was kind of a cruel joke, because there were no signs instructing drivers following those routes to get on I-70 in the first place!) Since that portion of I-70 was torn down in 2021, I documented the condition of the signs before they were 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 was shown in this photo:
