MA: MA 1A (Salem) Point Request
« on: November 01, 2019, 08:34:14 pm »
I would like for a point to be added at State St (StaSt) in Newburyport. It connects to the US 1 rotary and the meet itinerary for the Newburyport meet had us turn from State St here onto MA 1A NB.

EDIT:  I also think the US 1 points should be edited to better reflect the signed concurrency between Newburyport and Salisbury.  Using just the town names IMO does not show a concurrency here.  The requirement of using US1_S at the southern end does not help either.

EDIT 2: Nearby CaryAve on US 1 should be for CarAve (Carey Ave).

Guess I should have gone ahead and clinched the section of MA 1A between MA 113 and the start of the overlap with US 1 rather than relying on the lack of point on State Street making that part of the tour not result in anything clinched for Travel Mapping!

Added.

If we were starting usama fresh, US1, US1_S, and US1_N would be a possibility. But US1_S is in use, so this is not the case. Having three US1 intersections, our 2 options are:
Quote
1. Use alphabetical suffixes _A, _B, _C, etc.
2. Choose 3-letter suffixes for a nearby towns if they are fairly close. The 3-letter suffix should be the first 3 letters of the town name. Add a suffix with an underscore and those 3 letters.
The alphabetical suffixes aren't any more clear (town suffixes not "confusing") IMO; the town suffixes are sufficient. Leaving as-is.

EDIT 2: Nearby CaryAve on US 1 should be for CarAve (Carey Ave).
Changed to RaiSt, as at least that's a RIRO as opposed to a RI-only.
