BARS::Southbound Loop 101 in Tempe

[58,57,1 3/4,3/4]
[59,58,1 3/4,3/4]

The roadsign pictures were provided by Felicia (mat102@SCC, spring 2006).

There is a third sign for exits 60 and 59, but we don't have a picture of that sign. The 3rd sign looks as follows.

   Exit 60             Exit 59
   Chandler Rd         Ray Rd
   1 3/4 miles         3/4 mile
   pattern: 
   largest exit # - (1 3/4 + 3/4) = smallest exit #

   1 3/4 = 1.75  and  3/4 = 0.75

   58 - 1.75 + 0.75 = 57
   59 - 1.75 + 0.75 = 58

   largest exit # - 1 = smallest exit #

Since these roadsigns contain fractions, they are not valid at RoadSignMath.com.
