GMSV shows the Truck bannered signs on both ends, but is from 2013.

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

Signed on both ends as of 2013 - https://goo.gl/maps/5bE474RbQLu

I've already seen GMSV.  I'd like to see what his more recent observations are.

As of the last time I was there, a couple months ago, the signs still stand.  Driving a semi, I’m not about to risk not following the signs in the process of clinching a part of a road I don’t have.  😏

Hi Adam,

I was in Maplesville, AL again this week for another load from South Coast Paper.  I came into town via US 82 to AL 22 (thus, entering from the south).  Not only was the Truck AL 22 signs still present, but the sign denoting "Ordinance #82" stating "Thru trucks must follow marked route".  With it raining and me moving, I couldn't get a good picture of the signs.  If you look in Google Maps, they are there where I saw them.

Happy New Year (to everyone)
-Ed S

I've been looking though many of the Alabama State routes, and can't think of too many missing points, other than minor roads that some folks* might use as county-line "spinbacks". But unless there's a reason for the roads to be included, I don't know if every county line waypoint should be included.

As per a PM with froggie at AARoads, I've checked out about 1/3 of the usaal roads point-by-point. So far, nothing looks out of place. I see a good number of connections at all other SR's and many of the longer CRs or local roads.

Unfortunately, I can rarely promise a check them in the field for accuracy, because work takes me all over the country, but I take a ton of photos and browse the ALGIS features for reference.

I'm about 2/3 done - still haven't caught any errors. So far, so good.

Mainly checking to see if one route cross-references another point, and connections between those on the official state maps (which includes a fair number of county routes, where room seems to to permit in some of the less-populated counties).

There are about 10 NMPs. Mostly where usaal intersect US routes.

Load al.nmp into HDX. If you don't wanna / can use HDX, let me know...

Sorry...not in a position to use HDX, hence the ask.

OK :)
  • US411 wp I-759(4) is off, should be synced with AL759 wp 4
  • US280 wp US231/25 is off, should be synced with US231/AL25 wps
  • US80 wp AL81_SB and US29/US80 wps AL81_NB should be merged into AL81 wp, there are just two one-way streets. US29 wp AL81_NB is in use, US80 wps AL81_NB and AL81_SB are in use. However, you can use them as alt labels for the only wp.
  • AL22/US80BusSel wp US80/14 is off, should be synced with AL14, AL22TrkSel and US80 wp
  • US80BusSel wp US80/41 is off, should be synced with US80 and AL41 wp
  • US84 / US43 wps should be synced
  • AL134 wp US431_N and US431 wp AL134/173 should be synced (btw: why 173 in wp name?)
  • Are US231, US411 and AL23 wps in Ashville intended? I think so, let me know and I mark it FP.
  • AL176 has two shaping points +x02 and +x03 close together. Is it intended? If so, I can mark it FP.
  • Same at AL25 +x25 and +x26, intended?
  • AL167 wps AL/FL and CR9 seem to be intended too. Mark FP?

One other approach is to look at http://travelmapping.net/logs/nmpbyregion/al.nmp, which will show all near-matches in Alabama including many just between non-usaal routes. That's what I use, never having given HDX a try. Disadvantage is that if the mismatch is too big, it won't be a "near miss" and so won't be flagged.

The ones that do not get flagged is part of why I have been doing an overhaul of the routes in PA and DE.  I still have not touched HDX to this point.

AL134 wp US431_N and US431 wp AL134/173 should be synced (btw: why 173 in wp name?)

134 and 173 are concurrent, with 173 ending here. I think that's an artifact of 134 previously running through Headland on Church Street, as I seem to recall it doing maybe 10 years or so ago. (I used to drive this part of US 431 pretty frequently.)

Though by the same token, I suppose that also means AL134's waypoint AL173 should be renamed to AL173_N.
