It is supported in UI-View with the PMapServer 7 add-on... e.g.
MAP - FIND, select MILE MARKER and search for WA,5,100
to search Washington state, interstate 5, mile 100, or search for
OR,5,0 for Oregon. PMapServer then draws a line across the
screen that intersects the highway in question. I'm sure it will be
implemented differently by other APRS clients.
