In it started offering a mild off-road package for the GX and later that year rolled out an off-road-focused GX concept. Cooper Ericksen, vice president for product planning and strategy at Lexus, also hinted in a interview that the Lexus F performance brand could be expanded in the future to include off-road performance, similar to how Toyota's TRD performance brand has the TRD Pro off-roaders.
With the development of the inter-urban motorway network under the National Development Plan and Transport 21 , the National Roads Authority has adopted a numbering scheme for the inter-urban roads that will see Junction 1 being designated as that road's junction with the M50 in most cases. This has meant renumbering of existing junctions on some motorways, most notably the M7 motorway. Non-motorway dual carriageways forming part of major inter-urban roads also have junction numbers, however only grade-separated interchanges are numbered.
The United Kingdom uses sequential numbering in part because motorway signs use miles rather than kilometres; there are no formal plans to metricate the country's motorway system. Sequential numbers are used only in Nova Scotia , and Newfoundland and Labrador. The territories of Yukon , Nunavut , and Northwest Territories use no exit numbers, as there are no freeways or expressways in the territories. Prince Edward Island has no exit numbers either, as there is only one interchange in the province.
Exit numbers were introduced to major Hong Kong routes in , in conjunction with the re-organization of the route numbers. A sequential numbering scheme is used. The main expressway system uses sequential numbering; Metropolitan Expressway systems also use sequential junction numbering, usually appended with the expressway number expressed thus: ; , etc. There are multiple toll expressways not operated by the major national syndicates or the Metropolitan Expressway Authorities that have no junction numbering scheme.
New Zealand began introducing exit numbers in the Auckland region in It uses a distance-based numbering system. The distance to the exit is measured from the origin of the highway. That is:. There is no exit zero. If there is an exit within 1. Exit 2 would be between 1. Letter suffixes are added at multi-exit interchanges, or where two or more exits exist within the same exit zone. Instead of replacing existing ramp and link signs, the exit numbers were added as supplementary information.
Thus drivers can navigate either by exit number or name. Exit numbers are only used for exits that may be used by all vehicle types. Bus- or emergency vehicle-only exits would not be numbered. Metric distance based numbers are used on the tollways radiating from Manila. Supplemental "A" and "B" designations are appended to signage at the ends of slip roads. Expressway signage, exit number signs, and kilometer markers mostly replicate Australian and American freeway signage.
Uses distance based numbering in kilometers on main motorways. Letter suffixes are added at multi-exit interchanges, an example being the Buccleuch interchange in Johannesburg. Exit numbers are reset on the borders of the provinces as they were until This means that exit numbering may change in the middle of a province. One exception to the usual distance based numbering is the southern portion of the M4 in Durban , which uses sequential numbering.
Taiwan uses distance-based exit numbers in kilometers. If two exits are located within the same kilometer mark, the Roman letters are appended to differentiate the exits. Taiwan did experiment with sequential exit numbers with National Freeway No. Sadly, many new reassurance shields in San Diego County feature this disturbing new look. The Business Loop 15 that follows Centre City Parkway south through Escondido is the final signed business route on Interstate 15 south.
The business route follows an expressway alignment through the city, rejoining Interstate 15 at Exit Both ends of the business route connect to Interstate 15 via wye interchanges. Interstate 15 will now leave rural north San Diego County and enter the city of Escondido. A city limits sign for the city of Escondido is posted prior to the off-ramp to Exit Founded in , Escondido was home to , people as of the Census. The city sits at an elevation of feet and features a historic downtown district along Grand Avenue.
After this interchange, the Avocado Highway designation comes to an end. California 78 is major east-west state route across Southern California. Originating in Oceanside, California 78 is a freeway from Oceanside east to Escondido via the cities of San Marcos and Vista along the way.
East of this interchange, California 78 quickly becomes a surface street, skirting downtown Escondido via Broadway and Washington Avenue. California 78 ends at Interstate 10 in Blythe only a short distance from the Colorado River and the state of Arizona. There are plans to extend California 78 as a freeway east of here, but such an extension would be costly both in terms of land acquisition and the movement of people along the right of way. As such, an eastbound California 78 freeway extension is unlikely to occur anytime soon.
Upon departing Interstate 15 south, the ramp splits, with a left ramp to California 78 east and a right ramp to California 78 west. Omitted is any mention of the county route designation. Also to the east, San Diego County S-6 passes through downtown Escondido, then turns northeast toward Valley Center and ultimately Palomar Mountain, ending at the observatory parking lot. This sign was replaced between and An exit number sign for Exit 31 is posted on the side of the freeway; the hospital is Palomar Medical Center, located just east of downtown near where the one-way couplet merges back together.
The interchange sequence sign was moved a bit further south with the Express Lanes construction. To follow Historic U. For old U. Eastbound traffic follows Second Avenue, while westbound traffic uses Valley Parkway. To this complex, follow Valley Parkway east to the transition to Second Avenue, then turn north on either Escondido Boulevard or Broadway.
Parking is available along Woodward Avenue at the north end of the civic center complex. The advance sign for the California Center for the Arts Escondido used to be located here rather than further north as shown above. This sign changed three times between and Another neutered, angular Interstate 15 south reassurance shield was briefly posted here after the on-ramp from Valley Parkway from to ; it was replaced with a much nicer, state-named route marker!
The next exit along southbound Interstate 15 is Exit 29, Felicita Road, one mile.
