Nothing, I suppose.

Sorry, CBenson was replying to me — I had started making a sheet too, having forgotten that you'd already put forth the effort. My mind ain't right today...

I will commit the content in yours to the Wiki at some point. As much of a pain as Wiki table formatting is, the information gathering is the real hard part. Now we just gotta get someone to submit a FOIA request to the Wyoming DOT! :lol:

I did it for the Louisiana page.

Is it worth Wikilinking the state names in the FC maps table to the state mapping resources pages? I think yes.

OK, so what do we have to do now? Do we have to put this up to a vote? Or is it sufficient to have substantial consensus in this Wiki Update thread, as we do?

Okay. Here is the final version of the revision.

https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Road_types/USA/Revision

After throwing in the other and non-drivable portions (which should be revised separately), I reorganized and changed some of the headings, revised some of the explanatory text, and added another example to the mbox.

Good?

Meant to add those things, thanks.


Alternate, Bypass, and Connector routes should have the same minimum type as their parents. There is only one "Scenic" route in the country, so I would keep that Major too.

Business, City, and Loop routes should have the minimum type one type lower than their parents.

Spur routes are a bit difficult, since some states use "Spur" to designate connectors. When operating as a connector, it should be the same type as its parent for the sake of continuity. When it's just a spur into a city, though — basically a business route only connected at one end — it can be one type lower.


I will add "Minor Arterial". Meant to do so. Added notes on the "Other Freeways" states too.

No? It only affects the minimum type, so a business US highway that's a freeway is still Freeway.

Thanks, Russ. I meant to make that change as well. It shall be done.

Banished, I'm going to contact Andy. Like I said in the rates thread, my position has not changed.
