1. Changed.
2. Went thru the file and recentered points as needed. I did NY275 since you mentioned it here, but otherwise left points with intersecting routes alone; I didn't want to have to edit a bunch more files. Mission creep... :)
3, 4, 5. Changed.
6. I left this one in place, as it's in use.

While I was in the editor, I also replaced a number of hidden shaping points with visible intersection points where feasible.

Updates to Highway Data / Re: MA: US 20 in Marlborough
« Last post by yakra on Today at 02:32:09 pm »
Specifically referring to the shaping point east of MA 85:  why have a shaping point at a usable intersection? (Cook Ln/Concord Rd)  Why not have it as a full point?  Unless the guidelines have changed, I recall the waypoint guidelines recommending full waypoints instead of hidden/shaping points if an intersection could be used.
Correct. Changed to ConRd, with slightly tweaked coords.

On the same token, the intersection on the east side of downtown Marlborough where US 20 turns (at Lincoln St/Stevens St) should probably have a waypoint...that's a major turn from a traffic standpoint.
Added, although points are getting a bit dense here. I considered deleting the MainSt_MarW & MainSt_MarE points to compensate, but ultimately opted not to.

@Si: You have recently started drafting some frasd routes (not yet in HB though). What's your plan on this?

Updates to Highway Data / Belgium: N203a Halle bypass is signed A8
« Last post by michih on Today at 12:38:58 pm »
The new km posts (introduced for Belgium in late 2017) indicate A8/E429 on the entire non-motorway section of the Halle bypass.

That means, the former N203a (source: OSM) must be removed and A8 must be extended. The signs show E429 only which is common in Belgium. OSM indicates E429 only. I'll change it soon.

My Spring 2018 summary

I've clinched the region of Berlin (150mi) and I've reached 99.90% of German Autobahns (deua = 8120mi) again. I would only need to travel two recently opened Autobahn sections in NW (A33+A44) but there are more openings announced for the coming months (another A33 and another A44 section and a A448 section in NW). I've also clinched B6 in ST which is approved to be rededicated to A36 (~50mi). It will likely be implemented in 2019.

I'm now back from a 3-week-vacation to the beautiful islands of Ireland and Great Britain. I've clinched the Irish motorway system (irlm = 602mi) and all motorways in Northern Ireland (nirm = 69mi and niram = 1mi). I've also clinched all Scotish motorways (gbnm = 214mi and gbnam = 50mi) and all Welsh motorways (gbnm = 81mi and gbnam = 2mi). I've traveled 83% of the English motorways (gbnm = 1642mi and gbnam = 176mi). It was very warm on Ireland and I had no rain (only a 5 minutes shower which helped cleaning my windshield). There was almost no rain in Scotland (about 20 minutes while driving and once in the evening so that I decided to go to the restaurant of the hotel only) and once a few minutes in England.

On my way to Ireland and back from England, I've passed France and have now clinched 86% of the French Autoroutes (fraa = 7205mi). I've also re-clinched luxb system but it has a lengths of 6.18mi only.

Note: All mileage figures are system lenghts.


In total, I have exceeded 100,000km and have more than 65,000mi now. I think that I might reach 70,000mi by the end of the year (I had 58,000mi on January 1st).

Updates to Highway Data / Re: PA: US 15 (Future I-99) Exit Numbers
« Last post by vdeane on Yesterday at 07:04:52 pm »
If you do decide to add them to the future interstate file (or in several decades if/when I-99 actually reaches here), I have photo verification of the new numbers northbound on my website.  I also observed that the southbound-only exit for US 15 business (the one north of US 6) is 183.

Completed Highway Systems Threads / Re: usawy (Wyoming State Highways)
« Last post by the_spui_ninja on Yesterday at 11:52:29 am »
IIRC, I've only put CRxxx where it is mapped on OSM as such.
All that means is that a bored mapper added ref tags to everything for which TIGER data gave a county route number. It doesn't mean anything about whether it actually is said route.
When I was reviewing, I only recommended the CR methodology in counties that pentagon county roads (after checking with the respective county GIS and any other available source); I've traveled to every county in Wyoming within the past 5 years so I think I had a pretty current snapshot of what was on the ground.
