Crossing the USA on I-40
We have now traveled the entire length of Interstate 40. From the eastern end in North Carolina to the western end in California. And then back. Twice.
Interstate 40 spans 2,554 miles. The western end of I-40 is at I-15 in Barstow, California; its eastern end is at a concurrency of U.S. Route 117 (US 117) and North Carolina Highway 132 in Wilmington, North Carolina. It is the third-longest Interstate Highway in the United States, behind I-80 and I-90.
I-40 runs east–west through eight states. The state with the longest segment of the highway is Tennessee; the shortest state segment is in California.
The sign in California showing the distance to Wilmington, North Carolina, has been stolen several times.
Twice is not enough. We're ready to go again.
