Also, it's reading "Dr" as Doctor.
Is "Dr" being pronounced as "Doctor" wide spread or isolated?
Can you send me some examples?
I want to know if there is any correlation to the occurrence of "Sulgrave Dr" being pronounced as "Sulgrave Doctor" that we have found before in multiple locations.

My guess would be that someone (I didn't look at the segments in WME) made the road US-9 instead of US-9W (what it probably should be) in order to get the shield to render correctly. Currently shields do not draw correctly for any highway that has a letter as part of its number (this occurs a lot in New York). In any case, this is a bad reason, because the shield rendering engine is being fixed to accommodate highway markers with letters on them.
Also, I believe at one time the TTS would read US-9W as You Ess Nine West, so the W may have been removed to prevent confusion on the road that actually runs north/south. I think that's supposed to be fixed now - so as if the W is in the same word (not separated by a space) as a highway number (in this case, US-9), it will be read as W and not West. So I would imagine the road should be changed back to US-9W.
Any thoughts from Hudson Valley area managers?
