Original Route Next XX Miles Sign

A brown tall rectangular highway sign with white text saying: Pony Express Trail Original Route and a triangular logo with orange and white and a blue pony rider.

Consider using this sign when either very long or very short segments of original route will be signed. Use of either this sign or the Original Route BEGIN sign may be appropriate. Ask yourself: What's the best or most useful information for the public to be able to find and enjoy this segment of road? In many cases, either sign will work equally well.
