Interstates and Major Freeways

Primary issues for Interstate and Major Highway work

  • remove excess junction nodes (those not at intersections or at city-name changes)
  • inspect and correct connectivity of necessary junctions
  • update highway and ramp segment "road types"
  • inspect and correct overpasses/underpasses to ensure that the segments are on different levels and do not have a junction node where they meet
  • update all segment "Street Names" and "Alternate Names" (removing any duplicate alternates) in accordance with the standards published in the Wiki, but with certain exceptions as noted below-- when in doubt, follow these examples:
    • NON-SPLIT HIGHWAYS/STREETS/ROADS (two-way segments):
      • US Routes: US-20
      • NY State Routes: SR-60
      • County Roads/Routes/Highways: CR-70A
    • SPLIT HIGHWAYS (one-way segments):
      • I-481 N -- I-481 S
      • US-219 N -- US-219 S
      • SR-17 E -- SR-17 W
    • ONRAMPS:
      • to I-81 N / Watertown
      • to I-86 E / Corning / Binghamton
        • Note: two-way ramp segments should not be named; the TTS directions will then properly use the name for the next named street on its route.
      • numbered exits: Exit 26: Olean
      • numbered exits with multiple names: Exit 59: Dunkirk / Fredonia
      • non-numbered exits: Exit to SR-39 / Springville
        • Note: it is permissible to add route numbers on numbered exits; however, this is not essential, and if the name becomes too long, the TTS may cause extra confusion when repeating the information several times. Generally, the exit number and city name(s) on the sign are sufficient for the ramp name.
