MI: US-12 fixes
« on: June 11, 2020, 07:51:43 am »
Found some minor issues for the route that need to be addressed.

1) Found a missing interchange @ Greenfield Road.  It's between the 'MI39' & 'I-94(210A)' points.
2) EcoRd, WilRunAir, & WiaRd need to be re-centered, as US-12 shrunk in that area from a dual-carriageway to just use the 'former' EB alignment.  Also the 'WilRunAir' point will need to be marked as 'closed'.
3) Would add a point @ Brooklyn Highway (just to the West of 'MI50').  Reason is because of the big NASCAR track there of Michigan International Speedway. ;)  The 'MI50' point could also use a recenter too.

I wouldn't have deleted the 'WilRunAir' point, as that was a full interchange.  Should just be marked as closed.

No one was using it, and it was less than a mile from the points on either side of it. What am I missing?

We always mark closed interchanges if they were in the file to begin with as long as there wasn't a reroute.  I'm sure others would back me up on this.

Is it in the manual? Regardless, I think this is a good candidate for an exception to the precedent/rule. It was an interchange that only served a factory that shut down years ago. Evidently there is or soon will be a museum there, which is accessed via Wiard Rd. If someone who once worked at or toured that factory signs up for an account and needs that point, I'll reconsider.

Yes, it is: https://travelmapping.net/devel/manual/maintenance.php#closed

Add an asterisk(*) at the beginning of the waypoint and leave it otherwise unchanged.

I don' think that we need an exception, do we?

Not (yet) marking solved.

I still see preserving that point as unnecessary. The only reason to keep it is because of an arbitrary guideline that may not have anticipated unimportant interchanges.
