Then this brings me to my second idea.
We need a wiki page that says the naming scheme for state roads, per state.
I vote PA is PA-### :)

I've asked around at work today, and everyone refers to our state roads as "root" 100, "root" 724. So if they can have PA-100 pronounced "root one hundred" and PA-724 "root seven twenty four" that would be perfect!

Pennsylvania one hundred is waaaaay too long. I think pee aie one hundred is pretty obvious.
Also, waxes main goal is for commuting so it makes sense to keep the locals happy as lo as it isn't mind boggling for the occasional visitor.

For the naming issues, I think it can be further summarized to:
1) We the community define what we want
2) Waze the company will work with it

Once We get the true debrief thread started, it may be good to have break out threads to discuss individual topics.

Yay, yay! Is this live now?


This just referred to naming ramps though, right? Road segments themselves should still use alt names to hold additional names and we made it clear that we'd like control over shields so we could have multiple if needed.

So we all seem to agree to have interstates written as "I-x" and spoken as "ei x".

And US Hwys written as "US-x" and spoken as "yoeau ess x".

For the state routes, if we go for SR-x would we want TTS to say "ess ar x" or "State Route x"? I'd lean towards "State Route x" I guess since that seems more common.

If we also support SH-x, then the same question: "ess aitch x" or "State Highway x"?

And then county routes, CR-x. For TTS I'd lean towards "cee ar x" since that is all I've every heard anyone say, but I haven't been everywhere there is a county route.

And based on my hack research, it looks like the state highway systems are called:
Routes in 27 states
Highways in 21 states
Roads in 3 states
(50 states plus DC)

NJ is actually officially "State Highway Route" which I found funny. Everyone just uses Route so that is where I put NJ.

CT has State Routes and State Roads, but the Roads are not signed in any way.

At the federal level we also have Forest Routes, not to be confused with Forest Service Roads or Fire Roads. Any thoughts on those?

More or less exists here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Numbered_highways_in_the_United_States

I started to put that info in a Google Spreadsheet and try to confirm some of it. But it isn't complete yet.

For MA-2, would locals be totally confused if it was labeled as SR-2 and spoken as "state route two"?

I can't get along with myself...

Talking about roads, I use rOOt. Talking about computer networking (my job) it is a rOWt between devices.
