WV: WV-34*** (Hurricane) identity crisis
« on: January 27, 2018, 07:39:24 am »
We currently have the route as an Alternate, but there are signs saying it's a Business route as well....
Official PDF from WVDOH shows 'ALT', but with a newly posted 'Business' shield (see below), I'm really confused here to say the least. lol.

I'm thinking of just keeping the route 'as-is' name wise, but would appreciate some opinions on this weird one.

Another way of looking at it is that West Virginia has zero Business routes...

It is also shown as ALT in their Federal Aid Roads listing (pg. 26 - ftp://gis.transportation.wv.gov/HPMS_Reports/WV_FA_Roads_2016.pdf)

FWIW, Commission Orders from 2007-17 do not mention a change in WV 34 ALT...
