PA: I-380 at PA 435/PA 507 (Exit 13)
« on: April 15, 2019, 07:23:12 pm »
At first glance, this seems to just be your normal interchange with PA 435 ending at PA 507 at the end of the I-380 NB off-ramp.  I had just discussed one of these similar scenarios a few weeks ago (http://forum.travelmapping.net/index.php?topic=2949.0).

However, this one comes with a twist.

Right now the HB shows PA 507 as the cross-road that lines up with I-380.  PA 435 is shown with a southern terminus at PA 507.  GSV (clarified by the VideoLog shows PA 435 beginning in the middle of the I-380 interchange with PA 507 beginning straight at the NB off-ramp where PA 435 NB turns left.

I am basically considering two options:

1.  Extend PA 435 to line up with I-380 and truncate PA 507 to PA 435.  (my perferred option due to the "TO" banner for PA 507 in the GSV link above)
2.  Extend PA 435 to I-380 and leave PA 507 as-is.  Both would line up with I-380 in this scenario.

I will note that the END signs for PA 507 SB and PA 435 SB are north of the PA 435/PA 507 intersection.

Shapefiles also support Option 1.

PennDOT can't seem to make up it's mind when it comes to "END" shields sometimes.  (US-422 Business says hi.)

Anyways, I agree that Option 1 should be the way to go.  Just add a hidden "I-380" label on PA-507 @ the PA-435, as this is one time that this can be done without hurting list files by giving people rogue mileage.

EDIT:  I wanted to quickly note those that had the line "PA507 I-380" in their list files that need to change "PA435 PA507" to "PA435 I-380"to fix their respective list files are:
