Part 3: Coming Back From Arizona

Highlights Include:
1.  Continuous Clinch of I-10 from AZ 85 (Exit 112-AZ) to I-20 (Exit 187-TX).
2.  Clinched I-20 from I-10 to I-30 (Exit 421).
3.  Fully clinched I-30.
4.  Clinched I-40 from I-30 (Exit 153B-AR) to I-81 (Exit 421-TN).
5.  Finished clinching I-81 in TN and VA.
6.  Completed US 220 between I-81 and I-68.  (continuous clinch goes from US 220 BUS (Roanoke)/VA 419 to the eastern end of the I-180 Concurrency east of Williamsport)
7.  Clinched I-440 in AR and TN to complete the I-440s.  I already had I-440 in NC.
8.  Clinching I-81 and I-381 in VA completed the interstate mileage for me in VA.
9.  Honestly, my favorite clinch on this part of the trip was PA 96.  It seems to be a great alternative to US 220 between Cumberland/Frostburg, MD, and Bedford, PA, (via PA 31).  The toughest part about PA 96 is getting to it.  The curves on the section south of PA 31 (minus the borough of Hyndman) were practically nonexistant.

Clinched: I-10 (NM), I-110 (TX), I-20 BL (Monahans, TX), TX Loop 464, TX Loop 250, TX 158 BUS (Midland), I-30 (TX/AR-full clinch), AR 440, I-440 (AR), AR 249, TN 300 (unsigned-part of Future I-69), I-440 (TN), I-140 (TN), TN 162, I-640 (TN), I-275 (TN), I-81 (TN/VA), TN 357, I-381 (VA), VA 381 (unsigned), US 11W (VA), US 11E (VA), **VA 113 (unsigned), VA 140, VA 372, VA 91 BUS (Glade Spring), VA 90, VA 365 (Both Segments), VA 373, VA 42 (Middle), VA 320, US 60 BUS (Clifton Forge, VA), US 220 BUS (Clifton Forge, VA), VA 188, VA 384 (unsigned), VA 154 (Both Segments), US 220 (WV/MD), MD 35, PA 96, PA 866

New Mileage: US 70 (NM, AR/TN), US 180 (NM/TX), US 85 (NM/TX), I-10 (TX), *US 54 (TX), I-20 (TX), TX 18, TX 349, TX 158, I-20 BL (Midland, TX), TX 208, US 84 (TX), TX 70, TX 108, US 377 (TX), US 67 (TX/AR), US 59 (TX), US 65 (AR), US 167 (AR), I-40 (AR/TN), US 63 (AR), AR 11 (Des Arc), US 79 (AR), I-55 (AR), US 61 (AR), US 64 (AR), AR 118, I-65 (TN), I-24 (TN), TN 56, TN 299, TN 58, I-75 (TN), TN 33, TN 335, US 129 (TN), US 25W (TN), TN 62, US 11 (TN/VA), US 58 (VA), TN 1, US 11W (TN), US 421 (VA), US 19 (VA), VA 91, US 21 (VA), VA 311, US 220 (VA), US 60 (VA), VA 39, US 33 (WV), WV 28, WV 55, MD 36, PA 31, PA 36

*I am uncertain in my mind if US 54 is truly concurrent with I-110, but I think it is very briefly.
**In HB as US 11 TRUCK (Bristol, VA) and US 19 TRUCK (Bristol, VA)

...

*I am uncertain in my mind if US 54 is truly concurrent with I-110, but I think it is very briefly.

US 54 peels away from I-110 just north of the border, ending at Loop 375. (I went that way earlier this year, to make sure I had clinched US 54, and then headed west to clinch the recently-completed 375.)  The split is where traffic bound for Mexico stays on I-110, with at least one U-turn opportunity before crossing the border. But north of that point, US 54 is concurrent with the rest of I-110.

Given that I-110 runs on separate carriageways from US 54, I would say they aren't.  Or at least not southbound.  Northbound, only the ramp for I-10 east diverges before they merge, so I could see an argument for that direction.

Just added some mileage during Fall Break trip with family to St. Petersburg area.  Got off I-75 and drove down towards Crystal River with intention to visit Weeki Wachee State Park, but mermaid schedule didn't align.  Clinched all of current Suncoast Parkway, but new extension to north will soon break that clinch.  As usual with family trips, couldn't get as many roads as I had hoped, but at least took a different path from beach into St. Pete each time to travel a new route.  :-)

Went to Detroit last weekend to see friends who are almost family; on the way to DIA I drove on probably the nicest county road in the country outside of Clark County 215: the Weld County Parkway (http://upstatecolorado.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/CR-49-Hwy-Map-10.17.pdf). It even has fancy shields! Shame we can't map this...

I had the opportunity this morning to bike a portion of the Southern Beltway (Toll PA 576) as part of a “community day” before it opens on Friday.  We got on and parked at the Exit 16 interchange (South Fayette Way) and biked to Exit 11 (McDonald/Midway) before turning around.

I’m excited for it to open officially, if only to stop hearing the local news refer to it as “Toll I-576.”

They'll probably keep calling it that. -_-
Either that or "128".

So I may have missed the main Atlantic Beach Meet gathering to favor clinching NY 27, but I still got to eat lunch with everyone at Eisenhower Park in Nassau County as I headed west.

Clinched: NJ 10, NJ 159, NJ 62, NJ 3, *NJ 7, NJ 495, **NY 495, I-495 (NY), NY 24 (Riverhead), NY 27, NY 102***, NY 878 (Both Sections), I-478 (NY), NJ 4, NJ 20, NJ 19, NJ 184, NJ 171, NJ 26, NJ 91, PA 332
New Mileage: PA 611, NY 25, Meadowbrook State Pkwy, NY 24 (Hempstead), NY 106, NY 9A, Henry Hudson Pkwy, Garden State Pkwy, US 9 (NJ), NJ 35

*Whatever you think NJ 7 should truly be in the HB, I clinched all forms of it.  Sight clinched bridge closure along Kingsland Rd.
** You could argue that I did not clinch it based on me taking the south tube and then exiting on the expressway down to 30th St, but the routing is so unclear that I am fine with counting it.  You could arguably even call it 1PPI.
*** Unsure if it officially extends west to NY 24 or not, but I drove that part to be sure.  Unsigned west of where the end is shown in the HB.

A business trip to central California allowed me to get some new mileage. Some signage observations have already been posted in the CA state routes topic, but mileage was added on the following routes (in file order):
I-5
CA 33
CA 41
CA 43
CA 59
CA 63 (clinch)
CA 99
CA 99 Bus (Selma, Fowler, Madera, Merced, Atwater, Turlock; all clinched)
CA 140
CA 145
CA 165
CA 180
CA 198
CA 201
CA 269

I also did some file cleanup from previous trips (I hadn't completed making my CA state route list), adding some old mileage on:
CA 49
CA 88
CA 120
CA 152
CA 162Oro
CA 174
CA 254

And removed a little bit in error on CA 16, CA 33, and CA 41.

Shapefiles, RIS Viewer and 2014 TDR all show an end at NY24. 2017 Touring Route book OTOH lists "(William Street) Hempstead". Thankfully, the unsigned part is unsigned. :)

I just returned from a week in eastern Canada, plus a few days in the U.S. to make my way back home. The Canada part of the trip was to take advantage of the reopening of the Canadian border to non-essential travel. That let me catch up on new or extended/rerouted highways in Ontario and Quebec, during the two years since my last visit to Canada before the border closed in early 2020.

I entered Canada at the Peace Bridge crossing from Buffalo. That was an easy crossing, even with the extra formalities of proof of vaccination and the negative Covid-19 test result I had obtained the day before, and no vehicle search unlike my first Peace Bridge crossing many years ago. Then to Toronto, and into eastern Quebec, before returning to Ontario province east of Ottawa. I then went over to Thunder Bay before returning to the U.S. at International Falls MN (also an easy border crossing, with no proof of vaccination, etc. required for returning U.S. citizens). From there, I headed south on US 71 to I-94, then mainly on the Interstates to Indiana, where I spent a day and a half mostly off the Interstates to add the rest of Indiana's counties to my "round 2" totals (counties clinched after my 2010 completion of all the U.S. counties).

Without getting into a lot of detail, Canada's Covid-19 restrictions are more stringent than in the U.S., and reminded me of the restrictions in place in the U.S. at the start of the pandemic before vaccinations became prevalent in both the U.S. and Canada. There were a few eating places asking for proof of vaccination, though my CDC vaccine record card (required for me to get into Canada in the first place) was good enough even where electronic "vaccine passports" were the norm.

This trip brought me back up to 100% of the Ontario Freeways route set (ON 427 extension, ON 418, and ON 407 extension), Quebec Autoroutes (A-410 and A-85 extensions), and the Trans-Canada Highway system (reroute in Quebec from the A-85 extension, and two reroutes at opposite ends of northern Ontario -- the last one, west of Thunder Bay, annoyingly prolonged my travels over familiar and mostly boring territory). On the return from Canada, I also finished off a construction closure gap in Ohio's part of US 62, so now I have all of that route covered north/east of the Kentucky border, but still lots of missing segments east of New Mexico. Also, I added the ten Indiana counties not already in my round 2 tally (now at 2847 out of 3143 counties/equivalents), as well as a handful of counties/equivalents in both Ontario and Quebec to bring my Canadian round 2 tally up to 261 out of 731.

You might still not have it, unless you hit up ON-69 on this trip too.  I still need to put in the reroute between SH-522 & *OldON69_NoeS, as it was moved onto a new alignment there earlier this year.

I didn't, since I was under the impression that nothing had happened with ON 69 (except simple twinnings) yet this year. I could've worked ON 69 into my itinerary had I thought it necessary, though at the expense of other parts of my itinerary such as side trips on ON 115/28/62 and QC 382.

Oh well, ON 69 looks to be a moving target anyway, with more reroutings in the offing.

Well, a little bit of it was twinning (south of Pickerel River Road, OSM is showing this wrong as far as I can tell based on other maps) in place, but just north of there, it's on a completely new alignment to the west due to new bridges being needed, and MOT wanting to keep the original alignment for local traffic up to the new SH607 interchange.
https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=15/45.9969/-80.5785

StreetView was there as of June '21 showing the shift onto the new SB lanes while they're reconstructing the original ON-69 south of Pickerel River Road.  https://goo.gl/maps/NDHBMGGrZJYexUJNA

And here's where the alignment splits off of the 'twinned' part: https://goo.gl/maps/LbqsbMvUVSDNKXJ86 (and where I'll add a 'closed' mark for ON-69 for the reroute).

That's just shy of the Pickerel River Road interchange which wasn't open as of June yet, but they did have an access road connection at the base of the bridge.

But, when I get to add this into ON-69's file, I'll just be centering everything at the future center points for each new interchange (SH607, Pickerel River Road) so I don't have to come back and fix anything up due to it at least already being on one of the new carriageways and not a temporary road.

As for reroutings, I think this is the last for the foreseeable future, as they have to deal with First Nations for the rest of the new alignment down to the current end of ON-400, sans maybe to SH-522 due to them already having the new alignment bridges built over the rerouted CN tracks.
