Its not Colony Crossing Street
I think of "Colony" as the name and "Crossing" as the road type.
Colony Street - Colony St
Colony Drive - Colony Dr
Colony Boulevard - Colony Blvd
Colony Avenue - Colony Ave
Colony Road - Colony Rd
Colony Crossing - Colony Xing

CBenson wrote:So I just came across the first UR that I have seen that objects to the spelling of an abbreviation. The UR states: "xing is not how you spell crossing!'" The TTS here does speak "xing" as "crossing." So this objection is purely a display objection. Should we not use the abbreviation "xing" if users (or at least one user) objects to the spelling but the TTS is correct?

Not sure. Is it "Avenue Ess" or "Avenue South"? Which is the noun? Does it really need to be abbreviated at all? Maybe it's time to get rid of them altogether. Devices have much higher resolutions these days, and there's plenty of space on the screen for full road names... [/rant]
I don't think so. Resolutions are getting higher but not all screens are getting bigger. I think you'll have a tough time justifying spelling out "Boulevard" or "Throughway" in any case.

I think, I need to clarify this:
We are not changing anything. Especially, anything like Brooklyn Ave to Brooklyn Avenue.
My response was keeping Avenue same as it was when it's Avenue S.

As an example, there is a road near me called "West Course Road". I have it named in Waze as [West Course Rd] rather than [W Course Rd]. The word "West" in this case is part of the proper noun for the name of the road, and NOT a cardinal prefix adjective.
