So, should CA-241 have a point for the exit with S18 like CA-261 does?

If so, 33 -> 32 & the new S18 point becomes the new 33.

In the list of neroute2's peer review comments upthread. This also matches Caltrans' official exit number list, which has come back to life.

Now that canqc, and my summer travels, are out of the way, I'll implement this suggestion (and start on the others) once I've recovered from my latest vacation.

So according to this sign, CA 203 ends further east than the HB has it ending. Can confirm that as of this past week said sign is still there, albeit a bit beat up.

Truncating CA 203 to this point would also impact its continuity with MinSumRd in usanp, for which I see two practical options:
1) Extend MinSumRd down to the END CA 203 sign.
2) Delete MinSumRd

I favor option 2 given that it's not even in a national park.

Complicating things is that Caltrans' Postmile Query Tool shows CA 203 ending where the HB has it, at the Madera/Mono county line. The highway is often closed to most motorists between the ski area and the county line, by snow in the winter or reserved for Devil's Postpile shuttle buses in the summer. But I was able to drive out to the county line one autumn day (forget which year, but it was in the past few years).

I usually rely on the PQT to nail down route endpoints.

Which raises the question of, why's it in the HB?

It's in a national monument, maintained by the National Park Service. Si was OK with that fudge.

I don't have a strong opinion either way on whether it deserves inclusion, but on the OSM map tiles, it doesn't look like it enters the national monument, just a road to the national monument's access road and some nearby campgrounds.

You're right, my bad. The National Park Service website confirms. The route is entirely within Inyo National Forest.

There are other usanp routes including mileage outside national parks/other Park Service properties, that should be less of an issue. The most notable, of the ones in California I added to usanp, is the Generals Highway, which is a scenic shortcut between Kings Canyon and Sequoia national parks. The highway starts in Sequoia NP and ends in Kings Canyon NP, but passes through a significant gap between the parks that is within Forest Service jurisdiction.
