Found some time to do the first few randomly selected routes. I hope to do more soon.

WY31
WY31Spur -> WY31Spr (unless unsigned)

WY31SprMan
Is it signed?
US16 -> US16/20, unless you don't want to ;)

WY194 looks OK
WY238 looks OK
WY312 looks OK

WY433
US20_E -> US20_S, as this is a N/S route (right?) (Or just US20, as Tim (& maybe others) used to do it)
Meta: WY US16 WY433_W -> WY433

WY434 reverse point order

Did some GMSV digging, and I think it's similar to a lot of junctions in NE; i.e. WY31Spr is one leg of a three-legged junction. It wasn't signed in the GMSV pics (like those pointless NE links), but was clearly state-maintained (large speed limit signs, adopt-a-highway signs). However, that was from 2009 (although I don't remember any signage when I went through there last summer...).

General: Are the CR### routes signed as such (pentagons?) or should named cross-street labels be used?

WY22 looks OK
WY70Bag: CR### vs. named cross-street labels
CO WY70 looks OK

WY70
+X02 -> visible point here (SRSpurRd?)
Nearby SageCreRd may be a more major road than FR807
How about a "Truncated, nearby town name" point at at Cop instead of +X06, to break up the long visible segment?
Similarly, +X07 could become LostCreCam
+X09 is pretty significantly off the road centerline. ConDivTrl?

WY171 looks OK
WY231 looks OK

WY240
You might be able to break up the long visible segment with CraCre or CraCreRd or somesuch. Add that and remove +x01, and you'd still be (barely) within tolerance.

WY330 looks OK
WY340 looks OK

Depends on the county, for instance Crook and Weston pentagon their routes, but Campbell doesn't. It looks like Carbon does (for the WY70Bag example), but I'm not sure about the rest.

I've seen pentagons in Natrona County.

IIRC, I've only put CRxxx where it is mapped on OSM as such.

So should the Crook County routes (for example) be shifted over to CRxxx labeling since every county route is pentagoned?

Also, the BlaButRd on WY585 is actually some dude's driveway and not a road (despite what the Goog says). And the BearLodRd point is not actually on WY24, but slightly south.

I'd like to activate this one too.  Is there any reason to hold off, once we have specific sources listed on the credits page?

What about the Wyoming pages on aaroads.com? Andy Field knows a lot about Wyoming, and might have helpful info. You already have the Corco Highways site credited for both WY and CO, which helps.

I've generally found that OSM/Mapnik is often enough wrong on route termini, etc. that state route logs and other official documents are a useful cross-check. I've listed such sources for many of my regions in the relevant threads here or on the aaroads forum; just need to move them into our central credits page, once I'm back home from Canada next week.

Now that school is out, I'd be willing to field check some if needed.

Have we used this?

http://www.dot.state.wy.us/files/live/sites/wydot/files/shared/Maintenance/Maintenance%20Section%20Reference%20Book/2013%20Maintenance%20Section%20Reference%20Book%20(2-15-2013).pdf

Seems like it could be a good resource to verify against before activation.
I've used that when suggesting corrections before; it is three years old now, though.
On the OSM subject, the route termini for Wyoming should be accurate, to the best of my knowledge.

Because I used corco, it seemed superfluous. It is indeed an excellent resource, but I didn't actually use it as a source. Plus aaroads.com is listed as a general source, IIRC.

A least one person has said they were going to peer review this system - I'm still waiting on that for activation.
