Standardizing Nevada State, County and US naming.

Postby TruckOttr » Wed Apr 17, 2013 6:44 am

As a bleed over from the California subforum, there's a been a discussion about standardizing how state, county and US highways are named in Nevada. Right now the only consistency is inconsistency. State, county and US highway naming is left up the individual states, unlike the I-XXX for interstates.

From the California forum, we appear to have some consensus on standardizing on the following for California.

SR-XXX for Nevada numbered state highways
US-XX for Nevada US highways
CR-XXX for Nevada numbered county roads and highways

What do people think about adopting the same for Nevada?

For Clark County 215, I say go with what's used locally and matches the sign.

So I went through to try to change all the US-95's to match this, but a lot of 'em are locked. And furthermore, my update request to have a level 5 do it was rejected because the Road Naming Guide says it should be US Hwy XX.


They should all be locked to level 5 if not already. I don't see your update request on the UR page. Where was it posted?

Should we lock this thread with a closing post that links to the other one that states the new standard?
