Not sure. Is it "Avenue Ess" or "Avenue South"? Which is the noun? Does it really need to be abbreviated at all? Maybe it's time to get rid of them altogether. Devices have much higher resolutions these days, and there's plenty of space on the screen for full road names... [/rant]

I don't think so. Resolutions are getting higher but not all screens are getting bigger. I think you'll have a tough time justifying spelling out "Boulevard" or "Throughway" in any case.

Once again I'm with Alan. I prefer single quotes as well.

I don't think Waze Dev. changing anything yet. This is just is trying to fix these roads with N, W, S, E letters manually. This way we get better directions from Waze.

I agree with Alan. Few of us tested these with few different combination. The Best option, IMO, should be either with single quotes or double quotes.

Int might work for international?
IA is also an abbreviation for international airport.

That was during July or Aug this summer. I have a bunch around me that came from my edits during that time.
