As more people embark on year-end holiday trips in December and January, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is sharing a “Mile Marker 101” video that advises travelers on how to find and use mile marker signs on interstates. Look for these green-and-white rectangular signs at the edge of the interstate shoulder. Interstate mile marker signs are usually placed at every mile and may also be posted every 0.1 or 0.2 miles. The signs help emergency responders map their route to reach a person requesting assistance.

Ways You Can Help

Travelers spotting debris or other road hazards on the interstate are encouraged to use mile marker signs to include the location in work order reports. Contact VDOT’s Customer Service Center 24 hours a day online at my.vdot.virginia.gov or by phone at 800-FOR-ROAD (367-7623) to submit a request, report a hazard, or ask a question.
