Just tried it out on tmstage, all looks good so it's live on the main site.  Thanks!

These look great. The banner text (Bus, Alt, etc) below the shields in showroute is redundant now. Can the text be removed selectively from regions where the new banners have been added (since it's probably useful in other parts of the world)?

Should ALT be change to ALTERNATE?

First bypass I checked out was ME US1BypPor -- I think the hyphenated BY-PASS is the way it's done locally, but overall nationwide, is one-word BYPASS more common?

The MUTCD allows for either ALT or ALTERNATE to be used, but I went with ALT for readability and conciseness.

I have seen the shorthand ALT in the field more in the south. Although PA tends to prefer the spelled out ALTERNATE. VA seems to use both.

The MUTCD specifies a hyphenated BY-PASS.

All the bannered ALT routes I've been on (the ones that weren't US XXA) were signed as US XX ALT, at least on the reassurance shields. Wyoming, however, does something weird and sticks the banner inside the shield for some reason (I don't expect anyone to code this in, I saw it when I was checking to see if ALT or ALTERNATE was more frequent in my experience and I thought it was funny).
