Naming Demoted (former) State Highways

Postby MacroNav » Sat May 19, 2018 10:25 pm

How should we handle roads that were formerly classified as state highways, but have now reverted to local control? In this case, the county still calls it a numbered highway, even though the state does not.

Hwy 282 runs from Jefferson City to East Helena. A small section at Montana City remains signed and classified as on-system secondary Hwy 282, and there is a new section on the west side of the highway that is classified on-system secondary hwy 282. However, The older sections north and south of Montana city are no longer on-system or signed by MDT. There are a few Little Green Signs/Street signs that call it "Hwy 282" or S Hwy 282", but there are no state arrowhead secondary number signs.

So, in the case where a county still calls it a numbered highway, should we leave it named MT-282, name it S Hwy 282 like the LGS, or call it county hwy 282 or similar?

Jefferson County GIS calls it "S Hwy 282"

MDT GIS calls it off-system (except for the part in Montana City)
Depending on section, named either:
Jefferson County Route 926
Jefferson City Frontage Rd

*** Update *** I did make changes to match county GIS and signage, changing some sections to "Hwy 282" and other local street names, and updating road types to reflect FC
