List[edit]

There are a lot of these highways out there in existence. Shall we make a list or category for these highways? I'm going to create a list right now on this talk page, starting with California:

California State Route 62[edit]

UPDATE: just added 2004, news on putting one last year, here's the link: http://www.usmc.mil/marinelink/mcn2000.nsf/0/6263B323F0BAD61885256FF200799AC5?opendocument

forgot to sign - --Geopgeop 04:32, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

ehh... never mind, it's up top already --Geopgeop 04:35, 8 April 2006 (UTC)


I've waited long enough, I'll create the category. --Geopgeop 09:00, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Florida[edit]

The Florida Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc. page [1] shows some U.S. Routes that are Blue Star Memorial Highways:

One on U.S. Route 19, exists in Crystal River, but I always thought they were used strictly along one specific route, and mainly on the East Coast. ----DanTD 15:06, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

New Jersey[edit]

Here's the link where New Jersey routes are known: [2]

Here are the routes:

Illinois[edit]

To re-align route 176, we removed a Blue Star sign mid-1972 from the southern intersection infield of routes 47 and 176 east of Marengo. As far as I know it was never relocated. --Robertkeller 18:39, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Virginia[edit]

The frontage road along southbound Interstate 95 in Virginia is named "Blue Star Memorial Highway" in Southern Virginia. I used to think that was strictly for I-95 itself. ----DanTD 15:08, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Tennessee[edit]

Blue Star Memorial Highways in Tennessee are listed in the Tennessee Code, Title 54, Chapter 5, Part 10, Section 54-5-1001. Mapsax (talk) 23:47, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. Direct link. --Pmsyyz (talk) 01:51, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

We need to source and expand the body of this article[edit]

Currently, the only sources are on the list of highways. However, the body of this article is small and unsourced. The North Carolina link looks like it might be a place to go for information for the body of the article. The list, I believe, is a distraction, and the article might do well to dispense with it.

I took some of the southbound North Carolina Welcome Center last year, but more recently I got some at US 6 in front of Brewster (Metro-North station). ---------User:DanTD (talk) 02:10, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

Maine[edit]

I know there are markers off I-95, but I'm not sure which routes are designated. http://www.kennebecvalleygardenclub.org/blue-star-highway-markers/ states that Route 1 is, but I know of a sign on Wilson St. in Brewer (1A, maybe?). http://barharborgardenclub.com/?p=6068 lists a marker on Rte. 3. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 17:16, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
