NC: point requests, point changes, US70Bus Beaufort
« on: October 21, 2019, 05:31:28 pm »
Couple of things from North Carolina...first, even though GMSV shows signs there, and the route was less than 2 years old, US70Bus in Beaufort is no longer signed, per field check this October. Nothing on US70 proper, and I travelled from the east end to NC101. Nothing. BTW, NC101 still ends at the same spot, no changes there.

Also a couple of point changes and/or requests:

* For NC53: GumSprRd -> GumBraRd

* Also, A point for Gum Branch Rd would be handy on US17BusJac.

* NC172: points for the Camp Lejeune gates, or the nearest road to the gate seems needed. I drove the northern section of NC172 to Bear Creek Rd right near the gate. And also, how did 4 people clinch a route that's half under military jurisdiction? Is there a way for civilians to travel it I don't know about?

* And a minor nitpick: on NC73, wouldn't it make more sense for nearby Beatties Ford Rd to be a point instead of Henry Ln (HenLn)? Granted it's only like 500 feet away, so no biggie, but Beatties Ford goes to I-485; Henry Ln just dead ends.

N.C. 172 used to be open to through traffic prior to 9/11.
I drove the entire thing in 1990.

Interesting about 70 business... had it been approved by AASHTO.?

I have made the changes suggested but not yet done anything with US 70 business...waiting to see if that is just temporary

mapmikey, I caught in the commit on Github that the NC 53 edit was accidentally put in for NC 58. I indicated to Jim already about fixing it. Relevant comments on Github can be accessed at the below link.

You're welcome.  It definitely averted possibly quite a few threads and broken list files over the issue.

I ended up looking at NC 53 and NC 24 around Jacksonville and see further changes that should be made.

NC 53
1.  GumBraRd should be recentered slightly.
2.   +x110 should be replaced with a visible point at Carolina Forest Blvd (CarForBlvd).
3.  Points should be added at Jacksonville Pkwy (JacPkwy-connects to US 17 SB), Huff Dr (connects to US 17 bypass), and Wilson Blvd (WilBlvd) (the latter also should be added to NC 24).

NC 24:
1.  See number 3 for NC 53.
2.  I would change TarBlvd (Tarawa Blvd) to Corbin St (CorSt).  Tarawa Blvd seems to go to a private community.
3.  A point should be added for the interchange at the main gate for Camp Lejeune.
4.  I would replace HunTrl with a point at nearby Piney Green Rd (PinGreRd).
5.  I would make KelRd a hidden shaping point as the road seems to dead end unless it is in-use.  These revisions seem to add more than enough visible points anyhow.

When I looked into the US 70 BUS (Beaumont) issue briefly yesterday, I did not see anything on the NCDOT Route Changes page that proved to me it should have ever existed.

I think an email to NCDOT may have to be done on this one.
