I don't know of any local editors for CO. The CO forum has been empty. Doing a search on the forums there hasn't been any update requests, unlock requests or even messages referencing the Denver area or CO that I can find.

Looking at the map, it appears that bgodette(6) made a pass thru Denver in the summer of 2012. There's been no real editing since then except the occasional rogue Level 1.
Mostly because Denver has been "done" since spring 2012. Any edits inside the metro are keeping up with construction and parking lots. Boulder is also "done" inside its city limits. Longmont is mostly done except around its edges. Johnstown/Milliken is done.

Gunbarrel, Niwot, Lafayette, Louisville, Erie all need work. Estes Park and Lyons are only done in the areas surrounding the US highways. Loveland, Ft Collins, Greeley has mostly been worked on by the locals, but looks a mess. Castle Pines has a local, and looks mostly OK.

Everything south of Castle Pines basically needs a lot of work and the locals have been doing some bizarre work.

Grand Junction, Silt, Rifle, No Name, Delta, Hotchkiss, and Paonia were victims of vandalism and are basically 90-100% done and all segments locked at 5 and should remain locked at 5. Basically that means fix it if you're 5+ or PM jasonh300 or me.

Short names are a go, tho I wish Waze would make SH-XX say State Highway as we don't use State Route here. aubie1988 seems to be doing northern Colorado and eastern plains. troyv does maintenance over the same area I cover (Denver/Boulder/Longmont). Chris_CA seems to be in Colorado Springs. And of course tgfathergoose moved in somewhere near BAFB.

There's currently a mix between Functional and Simple (US=Major/SH=Minor). Functional is used outside of the mountains, with no numbered route dropping below Minor, and no un-numbered being promoted above Minor. Mountains/foothills are done with the simple Typing, however a large portion of US-285 should probably be upgraded to Freeway as it's been converted to ramped access to at least Bailey and likely on to Fairplay and Buena Vista.

Any paved CR out on the plains should likely be Primary. There should be zero Service Road typed segments. Anything you think should be typed that is either a Parking Lot, Street, or Primary. Pretend that type doesn't exist.

Most of the mountain towns are a complete mess from basemap import in addition to the old auto-geometry that drive analysis used to do doing additional damage. Fortunately our DOT maps are reasonable good and very usable: http://dtdapps.coloradodot.info/otis

Don't use the map visible in Traffic Data as an information source as that's NavTeq's tiles. MapView is government GIS being displayed with ESRI's viewer so it valid source material. Windshield is CDOT produced as well and is a good source for all BGS imagery for any numbered route in Colorado.

FYI I have a mostly complete bookmarklet that does this conversion. Only thing left to do is conversion of fractions to decimal.

If Co = County, then yes
If Co = Colorado, then no, it should be SR-250 (State Road)
SR is state route, CR is county road.

Yes the direction should be updated since it was written prior to a lot of recent TTS updates. SR/SH/XX- usage should be specific to each state as to which to use.

Colorado happens to call them State Highways and the signs have SH-### if they don't have the shield graphics. I've also not heard anyone say "Colorado 128" so using CO-### doesn't make sense.

Chris_CA, your plan appears contrary to the current Wiki guidelines for CO of SR-XXX and CR-XXX. Do you have a typo?

Yes, it is a typo. Just seeing if you are awake! :oops:
SR-XXX & CR-XXX

Now in the Waze app, I am hearing a bunch SH (State Highway) that used to be SR (State Route).
Has this been changed?

bgodette has gone through and changed a bunch (all?).

I prefer SH so the app calls out the directions according to the signs.

This page has not been updated...

I'm good with this, already I and a couple AM's have started working on renaming the US and state highways in Utah to this cleaner more compact standard. I personally am not going to worry about most CR's yet as almost all of those in Utah are dirt.
