Interstate 71 is one of the most important roads in the state of Ohio. It crosses the state from southwest to northeast. Along the way, it links the “3 C” cities of Ohio: Cincinnati, Columbus, and Cleveland. These three cities are the biggest in Ohio, with Columbus also being the state capital. In Cincinnati, the highway crosses the Ohio River. From there, it continues on into Kentucky, all the way to Louisville.
Our Ohio Interstate 71 sign is precise replica that follows the 1957 federal government standards for Interstate highway markers. We use same layout rules and fonts the highway department used to create the originals back in the 1950s and 1960s. The specification of 1957 was that in use for the first decade or so of Interstate System operations. As original signs in this style have worn out, they’ve gotten to be progressively scarcer in the field. Normally, the only place you can find them is on the collector’s market. When they turn up there, though, they often go for a steep price. With our recreated route maker, you can relive the glory days of the Interstate era, without dropping a good chunk of change on an original.
Our Ohio Interstate 71 marker is printed on heavy 14-gauge steel right here in the USA. It has a glossy, non-reflective finish that allows it to complement the decor of any room in the house. (Put it in your garage, bar, man cave, or anywhere else!) Installing it outdoors is an option, too—it can stand up to a frigid Ohio winter just fine. We offer this sign in the sizes of the originals: 24 in. and 36 in. For those limited on space or budget, we also offer scaled-down 12 in. and 18 in. versions. Whichever you choose, mounting holes are included for easy installation. (Did you know all of our signs are fully customizable? Change the size, the state, or the number! And we can help with just about any other kind of road sign from anywhere in the world, too! Just contact Jake today to get started on your custom order.)
