I've noticed that time to time that the city or county name has been appended to the highway names, probably put there by whomever the basemap was sourced from in that area.

As a rule, use the local name (you may have to look around on street view) as the primary when you can and if it is signed, then the highway # (US-xx, MS-xx, CR-xx) as the alternate. Mississippi DOT maps aren't that hot about listing the local names for many roads, for many counties it may have nothing but the county road number on the map.

Also, some highways may be called Hwy xx N(S/E/W) on a two lane stretch of road kind of like this:

It should just be labeled as MS-583, dropping the local/county N/S/E/W geographical designation. In Waze, you should only retain the N/S/E/W direction on 4 lane divided highways. Some of the street signs around me have some state highways marked as such, but it seems to be somewhat haphazard and at least in DeSoto County appears to have been phased out with newer street signs.

Mississippi has frequent local use of the names of the town along the route for highway names, and they're signed as such. They're often names that have faded into history, but still exist on the highways, and there may be a few elderly locals who remember those names. For example, Caesar-Necaise Hwy., Gainesville-Pearlington Rd., Napoleon-Westonia Rd., Kiln-DeLisle Rd. You'll have a hard time finding Caesar, Necaise, Gainesville, Napoleon, and Westonia on a map.

That's fine. Get whatever you can reach, and check out the tips in the sticky post I put in this forum for other things you can do for general "cleanup". Thanks for your efforts. Every little bit helps!

State Hwy 28. Renaming to MS-28 or SR-28?

Postby majorjc_MS » Thu Jul 31, 2014 8:43 pm

While editing the map today I noticed that there are people naming this Hwy differently.

MS-28 by mlbrickner(3) in July.
SR-28 by scruffy151(4) in 2013.

Hwy 28 and State Hwy 28 look like the old naming and is being replaced. I also see some sections named Simpson Hwy 28.

I was going to start in Mize, MS and begin renaming this Hwy going west with the new naming, but I don't know which one is preferred.

I skimmed over the post by scruffy151 (https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=596&t=64208) on standards for state Hwy names. And according to posts in this thread it looks like we should be renaming to MS-28.

I wanted to make sure this was correct before I spent any time working on this.

Thanks,

Major Combs

PS- I'm new to this, I've been Waze-ing for a couple of months now. I live in Rankin County just west of Florence.

So where MS-28 goes through Simpson County do I list "Simpson Hwy 28" as an alternate name? And where it goes through the city limits of Magee do I list "Laurel Dr" as an alternate name?

Ok, I've fixed MS-28 from Mize to Hazlehurst and mlbrickner fixed it from Hazlehurst to halfway to Fayette.

Yes "MS-28" is the current standard. The other names are outdated.

Laurel Dr should be the primary name with MS-28 as the alternate, in Magee.

"Simpson" belongs in the alternate field.
