Here are a few more items I hope to get in before the deadline (is there still a deadline?)

In Indiana, for the main Lincoln Hwy between IN2_ValW & IN2_ValE, it looks like a shaping point is missing, since this segment is a loop that deviates from IN 2.

Nearby, the segment from IN2_WesS to US6 is impossible to drive because Lowman Lane is barricadedin front of the cemetery. It takes 1100W instead.

In Illinois, on the National Rd, there's a spur (actually a loop, but signed as a spur) at Livingston, east of Marshall.

In Richmond, Indiana, the posted route is different from what we have. Eastbound it follows SW 1st St, and westbound it takes SE 3rd St between Main St and S A St. I couldn't find anything on SW 5th St.

Finally, in Ohio, on an unsigned stretch of the Ohio River Scenic Byway in Cincinnati, the short segment from US50_CT to US52_CT needs an intermediate point at Eastern Ave to show what appears to be a really short implied concurrency with US 50 Trk.

Signage on the ORSB does become more common farther east, and it disagrees with the drafted route between the HobDr and US33 points. West of Middleport it leaves OH 7, eventually making its way to OH 833 and OH 124, following 124 through Racine, where it reconnects with the route we have. I couldn't find any signage on Tornado Rd.

Closer to 33, an ORSB spur is signed along CR 338A, evidently called the Great Bend Road route.

(Mistakenly posted this in the Amtrak thread over on the railways side, but it was meant for this one.)

It seems to me there was plenty of interest to justify those who'd like to see this move forward to continue discussion/refinement/corrections to get it ready for real preview and eventual activation.  I know there was also some grumbling about losing 100% clinches, but as long as the project is still expanding in scope, this is going to happen once in a while.

There is a rail tracking site too?  Can you provide a link?  My U.S. rail travel is very limited (as is the network when you live in Atlanta), but I did just travel on many miles in UK.

I found another spur of the ORSB in Old Shawneetown, IL: https://maps.app.goo.gl/s1tSEtjJUnu4WEWt8

The spur branches off the main ORSB at Galt Avenue in Shawneetown. It then continues southeast past Holeman Road (The particular sign you found does not seem to be on the actual route of the spur.) to Main Street in Old Shawneetown, where it turns northeast. It turns southeast again on Madison Street and ends on top of the levee.

Found a couple new Great River Road spurs while visiting the Quad Cities this morning.

One in Rock Island goes from the main route following IL 92 to the Black Hawk Historic Site, ending in a parking lot. It follows 31st Ave, 11th St (US 67), 46th Ave (IL 5), and 15th St.

The other, a route of 5 whole blocks in Andalusia, is a spur from IL 92 that follows 1st St to a river access point.
