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?
