The instructions recommend deleting one side of the road. I thought it was best to merge both sides together in an attempt to preserve speed data. I bet that doesn't always work, but do we really not even want to try?

Either way hopefully the addresses will transfer, but if the speed data does not, I am concerned the addresses might be in the same boat and also get jettisoned.

How about create two test roads, each one way. Save two addresses on each segment (four unique in total). Then merge to see if you get two or four from the single segment.
