I wonder if they posted the new sign 52.8 feet away from the old one.

Good question. Did you notice that the sign on the east bound side is missing: http://goo.gl/maps/RyUPw
Here's another Colorado Mile Marker on I-70 that got the same treatment: http://goo.gl/maps/Qx728

From looking at the latest street view photos, the 419.99 sign was placed, I'm guessing, 20 feet further down the road (using the stake on the left shoulder as a reference point). No way that it was moved 53 feet (the common length of a semi-trailer).
