Roads that run north/south have odd numbers. Thus, 95 runs from Florida to Canada.
Roads that run east/west have even numbers. Thus, [[Route 2]] runs from Cambridge, out through Williamstown, and beyond. And I-40 runs from Wilmington, NC, to somewhere way out west. (Even past Texas.)The famed Highway/Route 66 is perhaps the most famous example of an east/west road in the U.S.
Knowing this logic can (sort of) help you navigate when you are lost.
