BARS::Broadway Curve on I-10 East in Tempe, Arizona

These road signs were found approaching the Broadway curve on eastbound I-10 in Tempe, Arizona.

The road signs say...

   +----------+ +---------+ +---------------+ +--------------+
   | 60  East | | 10 East | |     Exit 155  | |     Exit 154 |
   | 1/4 Mile | |  Tucson | |  Baseline Rd  | |    60 East   |
   +----------+ +---------+ |   Guadalupe   | | Mesa - Globe |
                            |    1/2 Mile   | +--------------+
                            +---------------+

   the numbers are:  60  (1/4)  10  155  (1/2)  154  60

   the math is:  (((155 - 154) / (1/4)) + (60 / 60)) / (1/2) = 10
