In November, the New York State Department of Transportation announced the numeric exit signs on I-84 will be changed to mileage-based exit numbers. The changes impact the entire highway in the Hudson Valley, from the Pennsylvania state line in Orange County to Dutchess County and the Connecticut state line in Putnam County.
For example, the I-84 exit for the New York State Thruway which is currently Exit 7A will be renamed Exit 36A because the I-87 interchange is 36 miles east of the Pennsylvania state line, officials say.
The project will bring the signs on Interstate 84 into compliance with the National Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highway, according to the New York State Department of Transportation.
All the signs on I-84 should be changed by Dec. 1, 2019. The DOT reports construction is on schedule.
