Highway 93 ends south of where 188 ends at 63, but after 93 goes north from Tripoli its alignment is on the same 'line' as that of the east-west part of 188. There's not a straight connection between the two, though, because the Wapsipinicon River weaves around right near that "line".

When US 63 was upgraded to four lanes north of Denver, new larger mileage signs were put up - with some changed distances.

This is the new standard for signs at intersections: Metal poles, individual components spaced out, squat vertical arrows, no white outlines on the markers. I'm not a big fan.

The 63 and double arrow seen on 93 are perpendicular to us to the right of the 63 shield.

Usually a road going left is on the left side. The sign at right is for Old Mission Road.

Surrounding area information: Old IA 150

Originally, 93 continued 0.35 miles east to meet 150 when the latter went through Fayette. Highway 150 was rerouted around Fayette sometime in the early 1970s; the south part is a black line (secret 981) on the 1974 map. North of IA 93, this city sign marks the split between routes. (11/20/06)
