|State||The State defined by the query parameter ID|
|Array of Highway In States||An array of Highway In State objects|
The first step of the Exit Lookup feature is to select a State. You do this with the States API.

id to this API and receive all Highways that pass through this State. These results are called Highway In State objects.
It is important to know the difference between a Highway and a Highway In State. A Highway defines a limited access road that might span multiple states. I-65, for instance, spans 4 states (Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Indiana), and thus there are 4 Highway In States associated with the I-65 Highway.
