Rounding Error?

Mile marker on Interstate 29 at the Interstate 229 exit

In the background in this photo, taken on northbound Interstate 29 in September 2008, is Exit 43, the southern interchange for Interstate 229. I-229 forms a loop through the main part of St. Joseph, while I-29 bypasses much of the city. In the foreground is the 42.8-mile marker for I-29. The exit, though, is less than a thousand feet away. Maybe the exit number was rounded up.
