Milepost 419.99

As of this posting there was no marker at all. According to the very courteous (and very large) highway patrolman that pulled me over near mile marker 380: The Department of Transportation made the decision to no longer replace this mile marker, or the 420 mile marker on US 50. Apparently there are a few 68.5 mile markers in the State that remained in place .... The bottom line: It's gone and it's not coming back.

Sadly, it is missing as of 7/21/2018. Post is there, sign is gone.

Thanks. Until we hear otherwise, we'll assume it's gone, but leaving it mapped for someone to notice if/when it returns.

Milepost 419.99

It is currently missing. We were very excited to see it but it wasn't there.

Milepost 419.99

This does not exist any more. We've been driving back and forth between Flagler and Burlington, Colorado, for the past three days on I-70 and it is definitely gone. No 419.99 or 420 mileposts. Bummer.

[Audra D, 09/09/2017]

The 419.99 milepost was a response to the theft of the previous 420 milepost. Cannabis fans, this behavior is so uncool.
