Key West (June 5, 2008) Mile Marker 0 on US 1. The road starts here! Mile markers, often called mileposts, may be seen, as the name implies, each mile along the Florida Keys Overseas Highway. They appear on the right shoulder or median strip of U.S. Highway 1 as small green signs with white numbers, and begin with number 126 just south of Florida City. Mile markers end with the zero marker at the corner of Fleming and Whitehead streets in Key West. Awareness of these markers is useful as residents of the Keys refer to them continually. When asking for directions in the Keys, visitors shouldn't be surprised to be told that the spot they're seeking is at, just before or just beyond a mile marker number.
