RI 238 to Goat Island
« on: October 08, 2018, 07:56:29 pm »
I saw no reassurance markers, nor turn blazes for RI 238 to Goat Island (from RI 138A). I will note how poorly RI signs many of its routes, so I don't know how much it's worth.

Streetview shows RI 238 shields along America's Cup all the way south to Memorial. It suggests that we have RI 238 and RI 138A both mapped incorrectly. Wikipedia agrees with Streetview. RIDOT's map shows the road out to Goat Island is not state maintained.

Source for RI is a log that the pavement management division typed up about 20 years ago. Compared to other official sources, it has the highest level of agreement with signage.

I looked into 138A & 238 a couple years back, deeming it a case of insufficient info to make any changes.
It's back on the ToDo list, to look into again.

I believe that matches my memory. I certainly remember 238 north of Goat Island and 138A south of Memorial. Wish I had looked into it more while I could.
