As the only state/provincial system left to draft in the U.S. and Canada, I'd love to see this system get some priority.  Froggie, do you think this will be a priority for you in the near term, and if not, would you be willing to accept some help in drafting this if someone's willing to do it?

My initial (long-ago) plan was to get Alabama wrapped up before diving head-first into Mississippi.  That plan's been in limbo since Alabama hasn't been reviewed yet.  I can restart work on Mississippi (which has also included updating the Interstate and US lists) even though Alabama isn't done.

One thing that would help would be to update which 700/800/900-series routes are signed, as well as standalone/separated segments of existing routes that are locally maintained (i.e. MS 609 north of I-10 in Jackson County).  Mike had did much of this upthread, but that was also 4 years ago and there may have been some changes since then.

Here are updated official docs from MDOT:

Because Mississippi has some big GMSV holes as far as recent coverage.  Much of the state's coverage still dates back to 2008-09.  GMSV also has a tendency to not go down some of these lesser roadways...the type these 7xx-9xx route numbers are most likely to be on.


Here, it gets murky, because Mississippi is by far not the only state that has such state-designated but locally-maintained routes.  This was before your time, but it was a big sticking point for getting Vermont activated on the old CHM.  A number of NYS routes are also locally-maintained.

It turns out a majority (40 of 67) of the 7xx routes are signed:

701 Potts Camp - unsigned (2014 GMSV)
702 Michigan City - unsigned (2016 GMSV)
703 Byhalia - unsigned (2019 GMSV)

744 Greenwood was signed on the west end last time I was up there in August.

857, 859, and 860 near the Canton Nissan plant are all now signed. 860 is only signed on the west end at 857 since it is a dead end route.

Heh, I never realized that MS had so many locally-maintained routes. Local/county maintenance is pretty common in most of the New England states, NY, and NJ, but mostly unheard of elsewhere outside of large cities (i.e. Ohio, where the large cities maintain their own roads, but nobody else does). VT is just unique because extended sections of local maintenance get a different shield, but it's not unusual for a state route in NY to be co-posted as a county route (indeed, I have purposely featured such routes on both road meets I have hosted).

Quick update from the field:

736 Williamsville - Still well signed at both ends.

741 s of Kosciusko - signed at both ends
North end on Nile Rd CR 1022 is signed by the gas pipeline facility: https://maps.app.goo.gl/2cZ2vrVqni9Hkztt5

758 Louisville - still unsigned. MDOT added signs for To N Church Ave to the loop ramp for MS 758 WB, but no route markers.

A couple of field updates from a trip to Natchez:

The MS 930/932 duplex in Natchez is signed as MS 930 only on both ends; it is a north-south route. There were no MS 932 signs. I didn't get a chance to check the other 9xx routes in town since I was a passenger on the ride.

MS 818 in Port Gibson is listed as locally maintained. Scratch that one off the to-do list.

The west end of MS 888 (Roosevelt State Park off MS 13 near Morton) is odd. The MDOT maintenance is at the state park sign by the overlook turn in (MDOT is repaving it to that spot), but the only eastbound shield is just east of the park gate.
