VA: I-564 Point Needed For Intermodal Connector
« on: July 09, 2018, 05:30:22 pm »
I am not sure how we missed this, but the Intermodal Connector (for Port Traffic anyway) was open on December 21, 2017.  I know a point will be needed here eventually.

I will wait until it is opened at VA 337 which is supposed to be this fall.

Meanwhile I will try to be on the lookout for a route designation or whatever name is posted on the BGS (surprisingly no pictures I can find related to the opening)

^ Correct.  It's only open to the NIT facilities currently.  Access to NOB (Naval Station Norfolk) and the indirect route to Hampton Blvd (VA 337) won't open until later this year.

On a side note, it looks like we have an issue already.

Was just looking in StreetView (dated June '18), and noticed that the new exit has the Exit # of '1', which contradicts what we currently have labeled as 1 (VA-406's interchange).  As of StreetView's last pass on I-564, the VA-406 exit currently doesn't have an exit number.  I'm guessing VA-406 will gain a number in the future based on other exits gaining numbers (mentioned below), just no proof in the field yet (via StreetView).

On another note for I-564, shouldn't it have a point a point for US-460?  US-460 has a point for it already.  It's shown as Exit #3 on I-564.

I did the following with I-564:

Moved the VA 337 point to where it actually becomes VA 337, west of the Gate 3A exit
Put a point labeled Gate3A at that exit
Added the intermodal connector as Exit 1
Changed Exit 1 to Exit 2 at VA 406
Added the US 460 point as Exit 3

I did not add an exit 4 for VA 165 because the only place to put it would be at where the ramp leaves I-564 (i.e. the  VA  165 underpass is actually on I-64 past the endpoint of I-564) which is all but on top of the overpass with the Exit 3 point.

In the queue

Honestly, I think that fixing the connection between the I-64 point on I-564 and the 276 point on I-64 would solve this issue.  The 276C point on I-64 is already synced with VA 165.

EDIT:I forgot to mention that VA 337 needs to be updated for its north end to sync with the new north end of I-564.

In addition to fixing the new VA 337 endpoint, I changed I-564's end with I-64 to Exit 4 and placed it on the I-64 Exit 276C point.  I then moved the Exit 276 point on I-64 to the Granby St overpass nearby which had a point for US 460 but not for I-64.
