Type: Missing bridge overpass
Description: bridge up

This was for a bridge lift to allow a large ship to pass under. Traffic jam report? Maybe. Map issue? I don't think so.

[list]"In 800 metres, be ready to turn left."

Yes, that one. I've suggested it in other similar "grammar" threads in the past, too. It is grammatically correct and keeps the information in the necessary order.

Perhaps not, but I like the separation of the distance and direction. Maybe just a longer pause with out "be ready to"?

I often use a number like this for missing exit #s, especially around California where many exits have not had (and many still don't) the number posted, and then I go look up the signage text later. Now that I've been through the area recently, I'm frustrated that Caltrans official exit name listing doesn't list the same information that the sign physically does. In general, though, the Caltrans interchange exit number list is a great resource.

That's why I added a keyboard shortcut to insert text which requests they contact me via email before closing. Some editors, however, close them anyway, saying "it clutters my area" when contacted via PM. :roll:

I'd just delete that segment and re-create it when needed anyway, but moreso now...
