VA: I-495 HOT Lanes Interchanges
« on: December 15, 2018, 05:26:10 pm »
This is partly inspired by the following post on AARoads:  https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=294.msg2376241#msg2376241

Should points be added for the HOT Lanes Accesses to Jones Branch Dr/Scotts Crossing Rd and Westpark Dr?  Both somewhat seem to be respectively within the VA 267 and VA 123 interchange blueprints respectively; however, they do not have ramps coming to/from VA 123 or VA 267.  While I usually prefer the one point per interchange approach, I am unsure if that is truly viable here.

VA 123 should also have a point at Scotts Crossing Rd IMO if the other points are added to I-495.

I had only added the US 29 interchange for the 495 HOT lanes for that reason...the ones by Tysons Corner are extremely close and/or within existing mainline interchanges.  If consensus among the group is to include them I can certainly do so...

Personally, I am neither for nor against.  However, I would add Jones Branch before Westpark.

I can echo that sentiment. Westpark, definitely no. Jones Branch, ehhhh.... maybe.

I went ahead and added just Jones Branch plus the associated VA 123 point...

On I-495, JonBraConn should be changed to ScoCroRd.  2019 GSV shows this road as Scotts Crossing Rd from the Jones Branch Dr intersection.
