Zero-Indexed Highways

Today and this weekend are being spent in Indianapolis with my family.  Whilst threading our way south this morning, I happened to read ahead on the directions to the hotel we were planning to stay at:

“Take 69 South to 465 South (Exit 0)…”

“Exit 0”?  I’ve seen Exit 1 before, but never 0.  The thought occurred to me that the person responsible for numbering Indiana’s highways might very well have started out life as a C programmer.
