The US43 labels on AL69 look OK:
If a non-exit-numbered highway is a cross road a third time, a suffixless label is an option.
I've not looked into the other comments.

AL 83
CR34 -> CR30/34
There are two CRs signed here, as per GSV. The CR30 shield might indicate a nearby CR30.

AL 85 - all good

AL 86
McDRd - needs to be more centered, off by over 1000 feet

AL 87
Recommend adding a waypoint for CR17, so it matches a nearby one for AL 153

Recommend adding a waypoint for CR474, so it matches a nearby one for AL 189

What is a "long underscore"?

http://travelmapping.net/devel/manual/wayptlabels.php#over2

Suffix with more than 4 characters or exactly 4 characters but the 4th character is not upper-case:
CR1_Bibb -> CR1_Bib
CR55_Dale -> CR55_Dal

The general label truncation rule doesn't apply to suffixes.

I didn't saw a comment on this from froggie. Your regions are the only regions with four character label suffixes beside China (not touched for very long time) and Chile.

AL 88 good; limited signage in GSV
AL 89 good
AL 91 good
AL 92 good
AL 93 good
AL 94 good, no GSV coverage
AL 95 good
AL 96 good
AL 97
  • Would recommend a point for CR11 (Burgamy Swamp Road), which intersects AL 97 to the north and south.
  • Nearby CR19 doesn't seem to have a sign (however, GSV is 15 years old through there) and only meets 97 at a T-intersection.
AL 99 good

While looking for SR 100 shields in Street View though Andalusia, I found some AL 15 shields; normally it's a hidden route number for US 29. This is most certainly the old routing of US 29 through Andalusia.

Posted at Sanford Road (AL 100) on Three Notch Road
Posted on east-facing AL 55 at Stanley Avenue
Posted on southbound AL 55 (Stanley Road) as a concurrency (?)
Stanley Road at Three Notch, with "To US 29" posted alongside, and a AL 15 South shield on the other side of the road.
AL 15 posted on US 29 South at US 84
AL 15's beginning at AL 55 from US 29

Sure enough, it's on the ALDOT Covington County Milepost map.



Based on this, I presume we shall need an entry for AL 15 (just this part) in the HB.

AL 100
Unsigned, no shields on GSV. Posted on official ALDOT maps.

AL 101
US72ALT/20 > US72Alt/20
CR314 is correct in field and Google Maps, incorrect on OSM

AL 102
US43 > US43/171

AL 103 good
AL 104 good

AL 105
CR36 also exists downstream, but paired with CR39. Do we use CR36_E since it's posted with directional banners?
