Road classifications are a royal mess in north Jersey. I've hit sections here and there, but I've focused on routing issues mainly.

NJ has an extensive County Route highway system (5xx and 6xx route numbers primarily) and many seem to be treated as (or even named) State Highways. Sigh.
Hmm, just went and reread the wiki on road labeling and I guess that is correct road type as long as it is part of an Interstate (business), USH, or SH.


Right now my thoughts are leaning towards making the County system Primary Streets. And then my usual system of State = Minor, US = Major, Interstate = Freeway with exceptions of course (like NJ-24 which is interstate quality since it was supposed to be part of I-278 until that was scrapped because no politicians would let it be built through their towns.) If they weren't signed as county routes, they'd be called primary streets in any other state I think.

Roads in NJ are far from straight forward though. You have NJ-24 as Interstate quality but you have US Hwys which aren't much more than cow paths in other parts of the state ;)

Already fixed, but the two highlighted segments were set as ramps. They lead to a dead end street with a handful of small businesses. :roll:

They were busy, just down the street. No turns are restricted at all at this intersection.

Here is one where a level 6 user made some triage changes but the area needs some more work. The real reason I am posting this one is I find it funny that the SPUI is far from single point as it was left by shiaz! :lol:

Here is some work of ign_victoria1. Notice where the ramp starts and ends.

If you can't make it out, the ramp starts on I-94 then loops around and ends up behind where you started from. It should start on 159th St. Will be fixed shortly.

Here is a new one from ign_victoria1. Wrong COUNTRY, missing city, and missing name on a major intersate.

Will be fixed momentarily, but general area is in flux as I work out the interchange btwn I-90 and I-94.

Yeah the roads are a bit raw in parts of Chicago-land. I've been working my way up and down the I-65 / I-80 / I-94 corridor. I was focusing on the interstates themselves more than the side streets and overpasses, so I am sure there are a bunch of additional fixes needed.

I'm just focusing on the roads I actually drove and the navigation instructions I WISH I had gotten to start ;)

But I did fix the spot you found!

And if I get back to those side streets, many of them should probably be un-split. That is adding to the complexity.

I think I speak for most if not all of the editors when I say PLEASE let me know when I miss something! Every mistake that is caught improves things for the end users and may teach us editors something to look out for.

Sigh. Another level 6 editor not helping. It has been over a year, so I guess I have to cut them some slack ;)

Obvious traffic circle not treated as such:
