IL: Need Point for I-57 Exit 349 at I-294
« on: November 02, 2020, 06:44:31 pm »
I-57 Northbound has an exit for I-294 (northbound only) which is missing from the HB.

I-294 does have a point for I-57, which is Exit 8.

Bump...I think this was lost in the shuffle.

This appears to be resolved now.

The I-57 349 point looks like it needs to be synced with the I-294 8 point.

It seems to be off by a bit, since it's placed at the exit ramp gore point. I'm not clear if the point goes there or at the routes' visual intersection point.

Because there's only the one ramp, I put the point at the start of the ramp.

Actually there is a ramp from I-294 SB to I-57 SB.  (Also the "8" point should be changed to "7".)

Oh, you're right, there is another ramp. But the ramp from 294 joins 57 at about the same place I have the point.

The 8->7 thing is interesting because the I-294 file has 7 as a hidden point name! Maybe when the exit numbers were first being positioned it was in flux. I could flip them, but anyone who enters "7" now is covered.

Doesn't matter.  If you take a look a little bit farther beyond the gore point, you can see them building another ramp for SB I-294 to NB I-57.

Thus, might as well 'future-proof' the point right here and now, and properly center it in I-57's file to match I-294's file.

Fair enough. I will reposition that point.

I'm not sure what happened here, but both point coordinates still do not match.

Seems the point on I-57 was manually updated, and not copied directly from the I-294 file.

Code: [Select]
il.i057 349 (41.618404,-87.687141) NMP il.i294 8 [alt: ['+7']] (41.618437,-87.687293)
il.i294 8 [alt: ['+7']] (41.618437,-87.687293) NMP il.i057 349 (41.618404,-87.687141)

This is on the radar for next time I send files.

This should be completed to everyone's satisfaction.

Sadly, the points in both files still don't match. :(

I-57 is using: 41.618414°, -87.687188°
I-294 is using: 41.618437°, -87.687293°

What I recommend is that we use the 'new' I-57 location (seems to be the most centered one) and put it into I-294's file.  (see below as to why 8 can't be kept as a hidden point here on I-294)

il.i294:
8 +7 http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=41.618437&lon=-87.687293
----->
7 http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=41.618414&lon=-87.687188

This would fix this issue once and for all. :)

=====

The 8->7 thing is interesting because the I-294 file has 7 as a hidden point name! Maybe when the exit numbers were first being positioned it was in flux. I could flip them, but anyone who enters "7" now is covered.

It was first posted as 8.  Changed sometime between Nov '15 & Sept '18 to the now 7.

Sadly, we have to break list files here on I-294.  Why?  What we have as Exit 9 (Aug '15), is now posted as Exit 8. :(

So, the changes on I-294 will require an update entry due to the number shifting, since 8 is in use.
