In my local copy.

I'm guessing you're referring to the unsigned road east of Blackstrap Lake, continuing straight after the paved road turns south to the provincial park. There is another turn on the other side of the lake, where SK 211 turns south and the road continuing east takes you to Shields (which is how it's marked). I've relabeled that previously hidden point Shi, though it might be TR331_E based on where it fits in the grid.

SK219
-add WP @ "TR271" (turn required)
-change WP16 "CirDr" --> "SK11"
-change WP17 "SK11" --> "IdylDr"

First change in my local copy. The other two don't match where the HB routes SK 11 through Saskatoon, an open issue to be revisited before activation.

Quote
SK221
-change WP0 "CypHillP" --> "CypHillPP"

The current label for "Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park" (shared with Alberta province) is correct. (A bit awkward that many fonts, including the one used by this forum, make it hard to distinguish between lower-case "l" and capital "I".)

SK240
-relocate WP1 "CanAccRd" south by 260 m

In my local copy.

EDIT: Changes for SK 210 through SK 240 in the HB.

Some drone video on the Regina Bypass project indicates a 3.8-mile part of the west leg of the Regina Bypass (from TCH 1 to Rotary Avenue) is partially open to traffic, and signed as part of SK 11 (see video at 7:05). That and some less clear parts of the video suggest that SK 11 will end up as a lollipop-shaped route, curling south of Regina including part of the to-be-bypassed part of TCH 1, then continuing north on the west bypass leg to intersect itself north of Regina. I'll hold off on adding the new segment to the HB, until the next drone video or other info confirms the above, by which time more new roadway might be open.

OSM not only shows that segment as open, but also that it and other open parts of the Bypass have been assigned exit numbers (east to west, for the Bypass segments on or to be added to TCH 1). Saskatchewan hasn't done exit numbers up to now, and the various drone videos on the Regina Bypass site don't show any either. I'll believe that when I see it. The guide sign plan julmac mentions in the following post makes provision for the addition of exit numbers at some point, but apparently not yet.

The project website has a target completion date for the entire project of October 31, 2019. Hopefully that will happen before next winter's snows.

Not quite; according to the guide sign plan the west leg will be SK11 and the south leg will be TC 1, leaving the existing "bypassed" sections of those routes unnumbered, at least in the "inbound" directions. I found the guide sign plan for the full bypass here:https://tinyurl.com/y47dwnbn.

Presumably, no changes will be made to the "outbound" directions (existing signs for TC 1 and SK 11 will remain), which will be odd (two Highway 11s ?). If this is the case I suggest that those bypassed sections be retained in the highway browser within the cannf system.

-change WP2 "SK635" --> "SK635_N"

MapArt 2008 supports these suggestions, but the most recent provincial and SARM maps support leaving the SK635 point as is. GMSV of SK 321 doesn't help one way or the other, but of SK 371 it suggests SK 635 goes south from the SK635 point on SK 321 (to the SK 635_N point on SK 371), rather than from the MuhAve point. So I'm leaving this alone.

SK335
-add WP @ Zenon Park Access Road

Since GMSV has no coverage up there, and none of our online maps identify the road (MapArt 2008 shows it, at least), I'm guessing the access road is the one heading due north from Zenon Park, just west of the Arborfield RM boundary, and about exactly equidistant from SK 691 and SK 23. That's where I added the new ZenParkRd waypoint in my local copy.

All the other changes look good. They're in my local files, and I'll pull them in later (maybe wait for your comments on the remaining routes 354-397).
