State Road Shields US Sheet wrote:Montana \bMT-(\d{1,4}S?)\b(?: [NSEW])?(?:$| \/| \(| Expwy) to, Exit 22 Black White MT-84 / MT-200S https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... MT-200.svg


According to the sheet set up ages ago for Road Shields implementation it looks like Montana is going with MT-### for their state highways. Not sure if this is static at this point (since they haven't yet been implemented we might still be able to change). As of now, though, only the MT-### roads will be implemented as shields.

Montana's primary state highways will be MT-### but their secondary highways are named State Hwy ###. How easy would it be to make changes to this regarding secondary highways? Should we just wait until the shields are implemented then come up with a standard for secondary highways?

Chris,

Does the shield appearance differ between primary and secondary state highways? Can you get an image of whichever one is different from the one linked above? I'm not even 100% sure we can still update the sheet, but I'll find out and will help you make the changes if we can.

Yes, they are different. Montana Secondary Highways have a unique shield. I appreciate your help!

On second look there is a second line (with that shield) for Montana. It appears to be set up for S-### vice State Hwy ###, though. Still checking to see if this can be changed...

I wasn't managing Montana when this was added so I'm not sure if the Secondary Hwys were ironed out before the sheet was submitted.

Also we probably need to iron out the TTS for Secondary Highways.

The regex would always be S-### (S with three letters). This shouldn't conflict with Nebraska Spurs which are always S-##X (S with one or two numbers and a letter).

Looking at documentation it seems customary to refer to them as "Secondary Highway ###". Although the locals may not use this terminology, it appears the state refers to them as such.
