Squeezing in the Digits

NM 466 in Santa Fe

New Mexico never uses oval symbols on its Zia state markers, so other means are needed to fit in all the digits for three-digit highways and still have a readable sign. In Santa Fe, NM 466 is the designation for St. Michael's Drive between NM 14 (Cerrillos Road) and Interstate 25 at the southeast corner of the city.

The haze in the background is from the wildfires that were endangering nearby Los Alamos in May 2000.
