The content looks good, although under Wayfinders the "Tip: Remove any alternative names from the wayfinder to avoid best continuation" is a bit outdated. Guidance should be to use TIOs to ensure proper instructions are given.

sketch wrote:I have some concerns with the page name, as "Crossover" can also be used for authorized-vehicles-only median crossovers, which are not currently mapped. Maybe a "Crossover (disambiguation)" page would work, but really, your article is about mapping contraflow (not just the crossovers that enable it) and probably should be named as such.

ldriveskier wrote:I do agree with this and struggled with wording. I changed the page to remove the use of the word crossover, though am still open to further naming and other wording changes. I also struggled with "configuration" versus "reconfiguration". I freely admit that I'm not the best at wording!

I also think your thumbnails could be enlarged a bit. I think it might be good to have a section on extending entrance and exit ramps for contraflow too. When I mapped a contraflow near Columbus I saw a bunch of URs, because the whole mainline had a closure along its length, and people were saying "Hey I-70 E isn't closed, it just got shifted." Once we reduced the number of closed segments to only what was necessary people quit freaking out. So perhaps a sentence on setting only the minimum closures required to prevent routing would be good. Lots of work today, but I may have some time tonight to work on the page a bit.
