Is it possible to apply the same logic as St. for Saint vs St for Street? This would make it Divers for Divers and Divers. for Diversion... doctorkb may also want to have some input on what to do here.

Looking forward to having these resolved as "Divers" is fairly common in my driving area and sounds pretty dumb when the signposts show Diversion. :)

Those will need to be fixed in the editor. "Divers" is a common English word. We cannot have every "Divers Ln" pronounced as "Diversion Lane".

Thanks,

I've checked the link in the opening post, and it links correctly for me. Is there any chance that you are viewing a cached copy and not the latest version.

Since I do not intend on updating it within the day or so, the version date/time you should see is,
"Updated: 2014-08-18T04:00Z"

This Big List version shows both "Diversion" and "Points" as being tested. Neither have a functioning TTS abbreviation at the moment. I will bring up both as suggestions for additions.

Hope that helps.

From: US-90 Business S for U.S. Highway 90 Business, Southbound
To: US-90 BUS S for U.S. Highway 90 Business, Southbound

Or keep it as is?

You might want to post that in the road names wiki update thread

Can you please provide a link to the "Big List" the last time I looked at a list, Pt for point didn't work (verified about a month ago) and Divers for Diversion does not work and was not on the list.

Thanks,

and now you have found that
"Cord" also says "County Road"

This will be added to the "Big List" and we will also add it the submission list to Waze for removal as an abbreviation.
Seems like Cord should be put into whatever the list is of "needs updating" so that it says Cord instead of County Road.
