MN: NMPs on MN 62
« on: September 06, 2019, 11:15:04 am »
I'm not sure what's intentional here, but it makes for a confusing map.

US 212 and MN 62 where they first join (or not) just west of US 169 might be separate on purpose, if the traffic from the two does not really come together on common roadways.

The three points where US 212 ends at US 169, where MN 62 crosses US 169, and the corresponding point on US 169 seem like they can and should be consolidated into one.

This may have been a change that Tim snuck in on me while I was on a deployment.  My initial lists had MN62_W and MN62_E points on US 212, with a US169 point on the MN 62 list, to reflect the fact that there are officially two separate mainlines...one each for 212 and 62...through the 169 interchange.  US 212 officially ends where the two merge together between 169 and Gleason Rd.  If there's no opposition to such, I'll change things back to the way I initially intended...with 169 and 62 lining up (as the ramps to/from 169 are all on the 62 mainlines), and have two 62/212 points.

How's State of the Map going?  And how are you liking my hometown?

OK good, thanks.

State of the Map and Minneapolis are good so far.  Headed in for Day 2 shortly.

Is the conference actually in Minneapolis or is it in Eden Prairie near where you're staying (which I'm guessing is just off 494 near Eden Prairie Center)?

The conference was on the U of M campus, east bank.  I stayed in Eden Prairie to save enough to justify having a car rental.
