Good idea. Are there any obvious disambiguations from the state abbreviations?

I am working on the 48 continental, AK, HI, and DC. Since we don't have pages for the territories I am not working on those for now.

I created up to DC so far. We only need the all caps version since the lower case combinations will automatically use the caps entries correctly.

Considering this is information on restricting the turn in the junction node at the end of a dead-end segment, I suggest a link to that section be placed in the JSG, or copied / moved there as appropriate.

Done.

All entries completed for all the states. I also moved all pages related to the same state as subpages under the primary page for a state (which was typically the resources page).

Looks to be true. I started a new thread on that topic if anyone would like to contribute.

[EDIT: The thread above has since been merged with another older thread now holding the conversation.]

Agreed, the link was going to a spot further out on the limb than required and the reference on that page was not very focused. I fixed both to lead directly to the section you proposed.
