BTW, for you Oscar, I happened to notice that you submitted a list update and labeled it as including AL routes.  Saw that you had included some comments including a few point requests:

- I included the AL 13 point but had to label it "CR24_Wal" as I also have a County Rd 24 point in the Florence area.
- I also included the CR728 point on the AL 73 list.
- Boll Weevil Circle around Enterprise is indeed AL 192, but AL 192 is unsigned so for that reason is not included.

Thanks! I had meant to make the point requests separately on this forum, but this speeds up the process.

One point label suggestion: the south end of AL 255 is labeled RidRd, for the continuation road. But that doesn't pin down where on Rideout Road the state highway ends, especially since at that point there is no indication of a name change. What is at that point is an entrance sign for the Redstone Arsenal Army base, followed by other signs confirming that you're entering U.S. Government property. Would RedArs be a more informative point label?

^ I went by road name versus installation, as I recall that being the "standard" that was suggested in the past (Tim?).

And yes, after considerable research, where I placed that point is the endpoint.

On US 43/AL 69 in Tuscaloosa at 12th Street, there is a point for LurWalBlvd just on AL 69 just north of I-359 Exit 2, but that point is not on US 43.  On my travels, this results in the section of AL 69 between LurWalBlvd and 9thSt not showing as traveled on AL 69 even though it shows as traveled on US 43.

Will the 4 lane spur route from I-20/59 Exit 1 at Cuba to US 11/80 be left off or designated as something?

I did it that way to delineate that US 43 follows the "old streets" (formerly 25th & 26th Aves) and not the I-359 mainline between 12th and 15th.  It was to avoid having a non-matching point at 15th, which is what I otherwise would have had to do.

Though I am open to simplfiying the whole mess by eliminating the LurWalBlvd point and truncating I-359 to 15th.

This was discussed upthread.  Short answer is that it will not be included.

If you're willing to do one of mine (PR, AR, LA) in exchange, sure.

I plan to add some comment on waypoint labels at least, soon.

I'll try and take a look at it and make comments.

I'll consider AR, though it's not exactly a small system.  Smaller than LA, though.

OK, let me know what you decide.

AL 135 has been decommissioned; I was there over Memorial Day this year and there was no signage whatsoever.

As best as I can tell, it has not been decommissioned.  Recent news reports (less than 2 months ago) still used the route's designation in describing a new speed limit where it goes through the state park.

That said, I'll take it out if it can be confirmed that they don't intend to resign it.

Looking at it again (The StreetView car went through about the same time I did), I can see mile markers but no other signage, which probably means it's still a route but it's not going to be signed (all of the visible signage is pretty recent).

Doesn't hurt to check, though.

Hi Froggie,

Thanks for the Christmas present!  🙂 When I get back home, I’ll be able to add the AL state routes I’ve traversed.

One item to request.  In Mapleville, there is a truck routing for AL22 that uses Foshee Avenue from AL139 to connect to AL22 east of town across the tracks.  Can this be added, or at least the waypoint for the eastern end?  With a semi, I’ll never be able to drive the Main St routing there with 45,000 lbs of paper from South Coast Paper.

Many thanks,
-Ed S

^ Is it signed as TRUCK AL 22?  If so, I can add it.
