OR: OR182 is unsigned
« on: September 25, 2017, 12:20:50 am »
Just noticed that OR 182 is in the highway browser. However, I was just there a month ago (shortly after seeing the solar eclipse on August 21st) and I don't recall seeing any signs for this route, nor are there any on GMSV. For this reason, it should be removed.

I'm well aware of which routes aren't signed in the field, but as they're all meant to be signed as of OTC's decision in 2002, Oregon has the unusual position of including the non-signed Routes.
I'd rather shunt them into the ORH system, but I'm not convinced that system will be included into the project, so it stays in Routes.

As noted in another thread, intention to sign is not the same as signing. OTC has had 15 years worth of opportunity to get this right, yet has not done so.
Unsigned routes are unsigned routes, and we should really be consistent in our approach to these project-wide.

Similarly, the Nova Scotia Scenic Travelways may not ever see the light of day, but that doesn't mean we should include the Cabot Trail (unsigned NS30) in Nova Scotia Trunk Highways.

Exactly. ODOT probably figured that it was too short to be worth signing, and also, that it wouldn't aid in navigation to Devil's Punchbowl State Park, since there are already signs directing motorists to that park. Just like we do with any other unsigned route, (with the one exception of Interstates) it should be removed.
