VA: Minor Point Errors in Franklin Area
« on: June 18, 2019, 08:26:29 pm »
US 58 BUS (Franklin/Holland):
1.  SR 641 should be Hunterdale Rd (HunRd) or College Dr (ColDr).  SR 641 does not seem to be posted at the intersection probably because it is within the city of Franklin.
2.  The prefixes should be removed from NHighSt and NMecSt.

US 258 BUS (Franklin):
1.  SR 714 should be Pretlow St (PreSt).  Same reason as #1 for US 58 BUS.
2.  W2ndAve should be 2ndAve_W.

US 258:
1.  Should US58/258Bus_W and/or US58/258Bus_N be changed?

Made fixes and in the queue.

Franklin VA is messed up...

US 258 Bus' posted route NB is not the same as SB and neither direction is posted on the official path in downtown.  Also the pre-1945 routing is posted in some spots NB too...

I drove both posted routes on Monday though the HB goes the official route.

Relooking at the current HB, I think this could be best solved by removing the shaping point on South St and replacing it with one at the High St/South St intersection (the south end of both posted routes). Also for clarity maybe change 2ndAve_W to plain 2ndAve. (EDIT: Note that this iniquiry was why I unmarked it even though you marked it as solved.  -Mark)

The best part of this is that we are not even referring to the weirdness of US 258 itself, VA 189, and VA 272.  After seeing the 9-ton weight limit on the VA 189 Blackwater River Bridge, US 258 seems to serve as VA 189 ALT TRUCK (as PA would potentially refer to it as) between the VA 189 junctions.
