  Interstate 40 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Interstate 40 (abbreviated I-40) is a major west-east interstate highway in the United States.
Its western terminus is at Interstate 15 in Barstow, California; its eastern terminus is at a concurrency of U.S. Route 117 and North Carolina State Highway 132 in Wilmington, North Carolina.
I-40 also has a conventional mileage sign in New Mexico to the east of San Jon (a village to the east of Tucumcari, New Mexico) which probably bears the longest distance on such a sign.
