I still maintain adding a pause for a slash will benefit us the most, then we use the word "to" for multi road exits, but only if the sign groups the city and road separately. Using Morgantown for the example, the sign has the two road shields and then "Reading" with "Morgantown" underneath it. If you look at the sign, the text "Exit 298: I-176 / PA-10 / Reading /Morgantown" will read the sign verbatim.
If the sign had I-176 with Reading under it and then next to it PA-10 with Morgantown under it, then having it say "Exit 298: I-176 to Reading / PA-10 to Morgantown" would read the sign verbatim.

In my opinion, we just need to do our best to recreate the signs as the driver sees them. I can't imagine adding control cities where there aren't any listed, and sometimes there are discrepancies through interchanges that create confusion unless the driver can simply hear what they see.
My local PA Turnpike exit is a great example. This is how the signs read all the way through the interchange in all directions:
Both EB & WB exiting the turnpike "Exit 343: Willow Grove / PA-611 to Doylestown / Jenkintown"
Go through toll
SB "PA-611 S to Willow Grove / Abington"
Center "to Home Depot Dr"
NB "PA-611 N to Doylestown / Horsham / NAS JRB Willow Grove"
Getting onto the turnpike from PA-611:
NB No BGS, just a big Penna Turnpike sign with a tiny I-276 crest attached. So "to I-276 / PA Turnpike"
SB "I-276 / PA Turnpike to Philadelphia / Harrisburg"
Go through toll
WB "I-276 W to Harrisburg"
EB "I-276 E to New Jersey"
Note that there are 6 different control cities exiting the turnpike and 3 entering. Also notice that Jenkintown doesn't even show NB or SB after the toll even though it was one of the control cities on the exit signs. Also notice that PA-611 SB traffic gets Philadelphia as a control city, but it doesn't show EB or WB after the toll. I can't imagine any other way to name these ramps but to merely repeat the signs as they are seen.
