Notes from the field:

MS 333 Scenic is fully signed on MS 8 and MS 7 from I-55 eastward until 333 turns off the respective highways toward Grenada Lake.

Need to add MS 245 (Crawford) and MS 9W to the browser.

Old US 45/45A and the 7xx route in Brooksville were recently paved by MDOT but remain unsigned (and Old 45/45A unnumbered).

Signage at US 45 and MS 39 in Shuqualak says "To MS 21 South". Signage at MS 145 and MS 39 has MS 21 South Signage but not MS 21 North. It looks like MS 21 ends at MS 145 instead of US 45.

I know Froggie has previously stated dreading work
 on the 7xx routes for Mississippi (inconsistent routing/signage/responsibility)
I stopped in Kosciusko for lunch, earlier in the week, and noted signage on the south & east side of town for MS 731 & MS 735 running from the SE corner of the city square out to the MS 19/35 bypass of Kosciusko.
MS 731 following Huntington St and MS 735 following Jefferson St.
Just confirming their existence for when the time comes.

I expect a lot more posts to be added to this thread with the Natchez, MS, meet upcoming next month.  I do plan to attend that meet.

EDIT (4-1-2022): List of Point Concerns Begins Here:
I-20:  131>-130  (also affects US 80)
US 49: 
1.  W4thSt>-4thSt.  W7thSt>-7thSt. (Also the shaping point north of W7thSt could probably be removed.)
2.  A graph connection is missing with US 98.
US 61:
1.  Consider replacing the shaping point south of MS24 with a visible point.
2.  Consider replacing the shaping point north of BufRd with a visible point at Carter Loop Rd (CarLoopRd).
3.  Consider replacing the shaping points south of YorkRd with visible points.
4.  Consider replacing the shaping point north of US84_E with a visible point.
5.  A graph connection is missing with NatTraPkwy_S.  (done 6/6/2022)
6.  Consider removing the shaping point south of MS28/33.
7.  Consider replacing the shaping point south of CoonBoxRd with a visible point.
8.  Consider replacing the shaping point south of RusWesRd with a visible point.
9.  Consider replacing the shaping point south of NatTraPkwy_N with a visible point.
10.  Consider replacing the shaping points south of JeffDavRd with visible points at Dogwood Rd (DogRd) and Alexander Rd (AleRd).
11.  Consider replacing the shaping point south of RedRd with a visible point at Glass Rd (GlaRd).
US 84:  MS184Lau>-MS184Lau_W.  MS184Cleo>-MS184Lau_E.
US 90:
1.  OakStBil>-OakSt_Bil.  OakStGau>-OakSt_Gau.
2.  It looks like PorSt is a second PorAve...   I recommend going with Front Beach Dr (FroBeaDr).
3.  JerStPeHwy should be shortened (if not signed as MS 619).
US 98:  MS184>-MS184_E (I think)
US 425: US61_S>-US61 or US61/84.
MS 24/MS 33:  Consider replacing the shaping point south of MS33_N/MS24_E with a visible point.
MS 33:  OldHwy33>-OldMS33.
Natchez Trace Pkwy:  https://forum.travelmapping.net/index.php?topic=4867.msg27245#msg27245  (graph connection done 6/6/2022, label revisions not done)

Note from the field:

MS 895 is now minimally signed on both ends. MDOT added a single MS 895 shield above the weight limit on each end (US 11/80 and Lauderdale Toomsuba Rd). I have photos that are too big to attach if needed.

I found an oops in the list for MS26...

I-55 -> I-59

(MS 26 does not come anywhere near I-55.)

Update from the field. I drove MS 370 (main section) west from US 45 to double check field signage versus street view images. MS 370 ends at CR 171. Signage on CR 170, which is definitely county maintained, only says "To MS 370" between MS 370 and MS 9.

At MS 9, MS 370 is affirmatively signed (East and West, not To) alongside MS 9 from MS 9 & 370 north to MS 30. On MS 30, signage at MS 9 only says To MS 370. There is no signage for MS 370 heading west to the next MS 370 segment that heads north from MS 30.

Update from the field: MS 729 finally has a sign.

I spotted this new sign on the I-55 NB ramp to MS 7. I had to get the zoomed photo from the interstate shoulder.

Well, this was unexpected. I found a second MS 812 off MS9W in Paris. It starts at the intersection of MS 9W and 315 and heads east for just over one block.

By statute, MS 812 is in Ruleville over in the Delta

3.  JerStPeHwy should be shortened (if not signed as MS 619).

Last October, I didn't see any 619 shields on the entire route. (Same for 617 and 618, but I could have missed one.)

Nearby, 609, 611, 612, 613, and 614 were fully signed.

Well, this was unexpected. I found a second MS 812 off MS9W in Paris.

That's weird, the little stub appears to be unlabeled on the Mississippi maps.
