Some notes on QC 117 and QC 391, from my travels earlier today:

-- There is a short paved and open QC 117 detour east of Malartic, which OSM shows as unopened. This is explicitly signed as a detour. I would ignore it.

-- QC 391's north end is still at waypoint QC117 (which will need to be renamed, with QC 117 moved to a northern bypass, which I confirmed and drove). I drove a possible northward extension of QC 391, which would re-connect it to QC 117. But no signage or other info to show that QC 391's north end has been changed.

QC309
 - OSM has a detour route near ChLaj. Check. Perhaps add points at either end?

Checked it out, looks from Données Quebec like a temporary detour rather than a permanent route change. But I'll add points at both ends of the detour, with the northern one probably ResFau2 (for Reserve Faunique route 2).

Rechecking the shorter detour on TCH/QC117 east of Malartic, which I had previously dismissed as a temporary detour, it looks from Donées Quebec more like a permanent route change. But unlike the QC 309 detour, the QC 117 detour/route change stays within lateral tolerance of the existing route as TM maps it. I'd still be inclined to ignore the QC 117 change. Something like that happened near where I live, on US 1 near Fort Belvoir, Virginia. @mapmikey made no change to that route file, apparently treating that realignment as too minor since no new or relocated waypoints were needed. I agree with that outcome, and would do same for QC 117, as nice as it was that I traveled the slightly-relocated new US 1 and QC 117 alignments.

QC391
 - QC117 -> BoulRid

That's what I expected from the FIN 391 sign I saw at that intersection less than two months ago. However, Données Quebec now puts the north end of 391 south of downtown, stopping about 0.09 mile short of the Av. Turpin intersection. I could use the AvTur intersection as the endpoint. rather than End or BoulTem_N at my eyeball guess of where DQ puts the endpoint, since a cross-street is a much clearer endpoint than End or BoulTem_N. But I'll go with End instead.

QC335
 - add point for BoulCon in (leads to nearby A-15 and A-19 interchanges)
 - rename A-19_End after cross-street? The A-19 point is BoulDag (perhaps should be QC335_N)

I previously changed QC335_N to BoulDag in the A-19 file, and will do same for QC 335. As hinted above, I have a strong preference for cross-streets as waypoint labels, unless there is no good cross-street or boundary to use (which perhaps is the QC 391 situation).

As vdeane pointed out upthread, I need to also break the pseudo-concurrency between QC 335 and A-440, like I did for A-10/55 and QC 112.

Given that Données Québec doesn't show locally maintained sections of road, that could easily just be the end of the part maintained by MTQ.  I think I'd keep the end where the Fin sign is, myself, unless we find other evidence of a change in endpoint.  Does Québec have any other reference information on where their routes are located?  It would be nice to not have to refer to the increasingly outdated (and no longer accessible to those who don't have the link) Atlas des transports for the locally maintained parts of the network.

There's lots of remnant signage in Rouyn-Noranda, including along Boul. Rideau and other bypassed TCH segments through downtown. So I wouldn't place a lot of weight on that FIN sign, though maybe enough to keep the 391 endpoint at BoulRid.

That also gets into whether Quebec has locally-maintained segments of provincial routes. that are included in the officially-defined routes. Atlas des Transports shows (FWIW) the segments between Boul. Rideau and Av. Turpin under the same "collectrice" classification as the rest of QC 391, while QC 101/117 is shown as "nationale" (meaning, in Quebec, "provincial").

I'll have to ask around. It doesn't help that my French is weak enough that I have some trouble navigating the Transports Quebec site.

I figured those classifications were the equivalent of functional classification (example viewer from NY).  If the locally maintained sections aren't (or no longer are) part of the provincial system (a change may well have happened, given that the new viewer doesn't show local sections), that would naturally affect a lot more than QC 391.  The basemap still shows them (barely), but it it's not as up to date as the actual data being mapped, so it's hardly authoritative on this.

Looking at QC138Mon, it might be a good idea to revisit the points at the est end of the A-20 overlap.  It looks like the route configuration has changed since it was drafted, and with the Turcot project closer to completion, we might be closer to the final configuration.

Thanx for the reminder of what a mess that is. I'm inclined to simplify the routing, to follow how the traffic will flow once all the construction is complete, which apparently will follow the straighter path westbound traffic already follows through the interchange.

Stupid question: why is QC138Mon not the main segment?

My wild guess is that it's because QC138Mon is only the second-longest segment of QC 138.

It does serve Quebec's capital and its largest metro area Montreal, while the "main" segment serves much less population. The "main" segment could be renamed QC138Bai or QC138Sep, for one of its two largest cities Baie-Comeau and Sept-Îles. But that would break at least two, and possibly four dozen, list files.

Yes, 520mi vs. 350mi.
