Good idea about changing it to past tense, then phasing it out. I didn't look into the other bullet points yet as I was just focusing on getting the closures form in there first.
I did want to look at updating any instructions that may be outdated, however, when I checked the discussions tab, I notices another thread was listed as a ref to updating that page.
So I didn't want to make any actual changes until the other thread was made aware and cooperation was established on both this thread and the other. I forget what the linked thread was about but I believe its one that Kent and CBenson have starting regarding US roads.
