WV: WV18 point request
« on: January 02, 2023, 02:16:26 pm »
Would it be possible to get a point added on WV 18 in West Union? At Main Street (where the highway crosses Middle Island Creek) would be helpful.

Thanks!

Looks like I could do a little bit of cleanup in that area.  Will update once I've had the chance to do it.

Note there is a posted US 50 Truck in ancient GMSV (latest available) in West Union, running both directions on former US 50 leaving WV 18.

No idea if it is still there.  It is clearly for trucks going from WV 18 to US 50 east ore west.  US 50 itself has no need for a truck route.

Very interesting. https://goo.gl/maps/MNR1xqvPsQ7J7xKm7

Probably one of those types of routes that should have the 'TO' banner on top.  They honestly probably wanted trucks to avoid crossing the WV-18 bridge over the river due to the sharp turn there, even though I didn't see any weight restrictions for the bridge.

Would it be possible to get a point added on WV 18 in West Union? At Main Street (where the highway crosses Middle Island Creek) would be helpful.

Fix submitted.  Added points on each side of the bridge to allow people to clinch the small segment if they're just trying to follow the old US-50 route in that area if that's their thing. ;)
