MI: Add Points
« on: February 10, 2024, 06:19:56 pm »
Hi Team!
Would it be possible to add the following points near Coords.: 42.602828°, -83.289682°

MI US24: Franklin Rd

MI US24BusPon: Franklin Rd

Signs direct US 24 North traffic to turn onto Franklin then onto US 24 Bus

Thank you!

That location is one block away from another point on both routes, so it's hard for me to justify adding another one there. If you were following the posted directions from US 24 to Bus 24, why wouldn't you just use the point where the routes intersect?

Visiting the area and signs were posted to turn off where I did to get to the route not realizing I was shortchanging myself there. I'll be back in that area this week so hoping I'll have some time to finish it up. :)

I still don't understand your request. How were you shortchanged? You followed the signs because if you had proceeded past Franklin Road, making the turn would have been illegal. Franklin is  acting like a ramp, so it seems very odd to me that you would not naturally just use the point associated with the intersection.

Right turns are actually permitted directly from U.S. 24/Telegraph northbound onto Business U.S. 24/Square Lake. That corner of the intersection has been rounded off quite a bit to permit right turns (Contrast it with how pointy the opposite corner of the intersection is.), and you can see from the wear/rubber accumulation on the pavement that quite a lot of people turn right there instead of at Franklin.

A small piece of evidence in favor of extremebandman's argument that Franklin ought to be treated as a separate intersection: The signs directing people to turn right on Franklin say TO Business U.S. 24, while the "TO" is omitted from the signs for the southbound jughandle.

Okay, thanks. I stand corrected. Nevertheless, that intersection is too close to the other one to justify adding a point there. The other point is 1/8 mile away.

Understood! I was able to clean it up when I visited so this is a non-issue on my end now. Thank you!
