There Are Better Font Choices

Compressed, distorted font for Interstate 244 in Tulsa, Oklahoma

The Interstate shield on this assembly for Interstate 244 and US 412 in Tulsa appears to use the Series E Modified font, compressed to fit within the shield. Because that font starts out being wider than tall, the result is particularly ugly. A better choice would have been Series B, which is designed to be taller than it is wide.
