The routing preference unfortunately locks the entire segment to rank 5, last I knew. Not just that attribute, so it's not without drawback.

Is that access for the nearby scenic overlook?

Not sure if this is the sort of example you're looking for, but Interstate 27 in Texas starts on surface streets in Lubbock and ends on surface streets in Amarillo. No ramps involved.

Why would you use a ramp if a major highway becomes a freeway using the same road surface?

US-87 becomes I-27 and vice versa. Or are you saying the connecting points between the two should be ramps? How long would the ramps be?

According to the wiki however, all US highways should be Major Highway, no? There's numerous US highways in AZ that aren't!

So a US highway should be a major highway regardless of FC?

Strange that on street view there's a stop sign pointing roughly north but no road that I can see.

Tx, we're talking about the ones not marked like that.

No, don't ever close an MP as "not identified." IGNs get involved then.

This is very old information. IGNs haven't edited segments in years. Not identified is correct for MPs. Think of it as "not a problem".

I wouldn't say "years", but I was assured by an admin that the MPs would no longer be handled this way, which confirms (to me) that it was once handled that way. I can't find the emails now, but I believe the end result was that "not identified" now prevents that MP from appearing again.

I say "years" only because all the "Last edited by ign_*" seem to be from 2012. It may have been a bit less than that. Either way, I am sure I read that "not identified" now prevents the MP from reappearing over a year ago.


Also, the fact that once that happened, we wiped out all the MPs in New Orleans, and now they seldom--if ever--appear.
