Murder on I-10[edit]

In an intended robbery gone bad, an English tourist was killed by a bunch of teens at a rest stop near Chipley. Fearing for motorists safety, Florida closed many rest stops for maybe six years or so and put cops in others. Not a word online about this. Happened maybe in the late 1980s. Should be in here I would think. Can't really think of a better place unless there is a higher level article since it affected all rest stops in Florida. Student7 (talk) 01:49, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Who is screwing up this exit list?[edit]

Apparently an anonymous IP is shredding the exit list here, and has dragged me into an edit war. First, unless ELG restricts state borders and time zones, there is no reason to get rid of them. Second, if there's no established town where I-10 runs through Nassau County(where no interchanges can be found), then the column that reads "No Exits in this county" should span to the county column itself. The only thing acceptable about this users edits are the reformatting of partial interchanges. ----DanTD (talk) 22:04, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Take it to WT:USRD. --Rschen7754 (T C) 22:13, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Edit warring[edit]

Please stop the edit warring. There seems to be a problem with anon 75.47.x.x, see Wikipedia:Requests for comment/75.47.x.x. Possibly User:I-210 too. I'll semi this page for a bit to fix that William M. Connolley (talk) 22:38, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Maps by County[edit]

I found these Maps from Florida DOT. Perhaps will be useful? Gamweb (talk) 20:58, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, and those are also helpful for my work on the article for U.S. Route 90 in Florida. --DanTD 17:43, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Low traffic[edit]

The DOT has statistics on traffic somewhere. These could be used to document "low traffic' contentions. We would need to use DOT criteria on what onstitutes "low traffic" since the figures would not necessarily mean anything to a reader. (Is 10,000/day high or low?).

Route Description section expansion[edit]

Does anyone have any ideas for this section. I've added some but not enough to remove the label. (talk) 16:46, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

There are many ideas but one would be to transfer the #history and #Future sections to this article. I make this recommendation for two reasons: 1)- All the state sections in the Interstate 10 articles (except for Mexico that has none) has state main articles and are laid out the same, with the exception of Florida, that has the two additions. 2)- This article has three tags, two of which are expansion tags. Incorporating these two sections provides expansion and puts the state sections in the I-10 article into conformity with the others.
  • Also, I would dump the, "It mostly goes though rural areas of Florida", as most Florida highways go through a lot of rural areas. The inline link to "Citizen opposition" does not even mention Florida so is not relevant. I contributed to the rest stop section and removed the tags. Otr500 (talk) 14:24, 3 October 2010 (UTC)
Good ideas, both. No reason why you shouldn't put those two subsections in here anyway. Whether you delete them out of the main article is a separate matter on which I have no opinion. Student7 (talk) 01:02, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Rest area section[edit]

Why don't we include the rest areas in the junction list. (talk) 21:44, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

Because they're not interchanges. ----DanTD (talk) 15:00, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

"True" eastern terminus?[edit]

Can someone tell me what the "true" eastern terminus of I-10 is? I know it is I-95 (unsigned FL 9), but what about US 17 or FL 228 or even Stockton Street? Am I confused, or is the answer just not reflected in the exit list? Also, for a long time, I have wondered, "Why has I-10 never gone further east than I-95?" (like to the beach area). The answer may seem simple, but can someone find a sourced and cited reference to the answer? Thank you for your help. Allen (talk) 01:59, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

The true eastern terminus is I-95. The "concurrency terminuses" are for the overlapping with US-17. As for why it hasn't gone further east, I'd assume that would be because it would have to take out a large chunk of downtown to do so, as well as one heck of a bridge given the St. John's runs E-W through that part of town. Of course you could always extend it down I-95 and then out 202, but that's probably not Interstate-grade. - The Bushranger One ping only 02:14, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for the prompt response.
Forgive me for sounding stupid, but are US 17 or FL 228 concurrent with I-10 at all? I was in Jacksonville from 2003-2011, and I saw signs that indicate that. Allen (talk) 02:21, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
There have been some links that show some proposed, unbuilt, and unfinished highways in Jacksonville and vicinity, and it might've included an extension of I-10 towards the coast, but I can't find it right now. As for the realignement of US 17 onto I-10, I-95, and the wrong way concurrency with US 23, I believe that was supposed to be in conjunction wiht the reconstruction of I-10 and I-95. ----DanTD (talk) 03:24, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure 17 runs concurrent with I-10 from Exit 361 eastwards? - The Bushranger One ping only 06:02, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
I don't really see anybody disputing that(are they?) ----DanTD (talk) 13:25, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Jacksonville Exits[edit]

While FDOT exit signs do name "Marietta" and "Whitehouse" is on a westbound (talk) 19:52, 19 November 2015 (UTC)mileage marker, it seems ridiculous to not list these within the jurisdiction (Jacksonville) where they actually are.

Let's take the reverse. When I get onto I-95 in Brevard County about halfway down the state, there are two directional signs, "Miami" (indicating South) and "Jacksonville", indicating north. Should these signs be "located in Brevard County" on an I-95 article? I think that would at the most not be useful to readers, at the least, be confusing.
