PA: PA-910 suggestions
« on: February 21, 2021, 03:16:54 am »
Would recommend two points be added to the route.

1) Church Road. Why? Before the construction* of North Chapel Drive on the other side of US-19, Church Road WAS the main connection to US-19 for both directions.  Plus, they recently added a traffic light there (upgraded from 4-way Stop signs), and it still provides the most used access to SB US-19 there.

2) Pearce Mill Road. Why? Major connection down into North Park.

After seeing this, I should have had Church Rd to begin with.

Another little tidbit, but Church Road served as US-19 SB for awhile when they reconstructed the US-19 bridge over PA-910 in the 00's.  They kept NB US-19 up on bridge while they rebuilt one side at a time.  Was an easy way for PennDOT to keep 2 lanes for each direction back then.

That makes sense.  My main issue here was that I could not justify the previous graph connection between US 19 and PA 910 (removed in https://github.com/TravelMapping/HighwayData/pull/2411).
