I finished mapping the state roads as they existed in 1945: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1jN2a1kHL8hFXe9PO8agPoHMOCjt2RyU

Nice work. Quick question:  Is this how the roads were before or after the great renumbering?

Outstanding work and excellent notes! :clap:

From looking at a few dozen routes, this was the great renumbering; however, there were additional changes all the way up to around 1983, though usually to shorter local routes.

This is just after the renumbering. One of the linked sources is the 1945 log.

And wait until the new DDI with a planned Buc-ee's a nearby opens on the north side of Ocala, and see traffic congestion further increase.

Is this interchange still being proposed? Because I heard that the Buc-ee's is supposed to be moved to SR 326 now.

https://www.wfla.com/news/is-florida-getting-another-buc-ees-location/

We've been to both in Florida and can now say "We've been to Buc-ee's" -- both were like Walmart and Best Buy wrapped up together on Black Friday, both in the parking lot and in the store. The brisket is good but not worth the anxiety.

If/when the Ocala one is built, if in whichever location, will they push for access to the east from U.S. 301? If nothing else, this would avoid having to travel a short stretch of I-75 to get to or from exit 358 and Zuber to get to or from U.S. 301 (depending on whether going north or south).

If nothing else, it would be nice if FDOT would upgrade the northbound off ramp at 358 by extending it further south; at times it stacks up and spills into the travel lane due to the truck stops there and as the preferred connection to continue north on U.S. 301. The ultimate, as I have seen someone post here, would be a limited-access extension of U.S. 301 from its junction with U.S. 441 west to a direct interchange with I-75.

NE2, I see a few that I was previously unware of in the Orlando area. Could you give me some route numbers and any other info you have on the following:

1.In Forest City, the route using Bear Lake Rd and Bunnell Rd

2. Ronald Regan Blvd/ Anchor Rd

3. South Sanford Ave crossing the western part of Lake Jessup? Was there a ferry, or was this a never-completed route?

4. Kaley Ave, turning north on Mills Ave, up to Briarcliff Dr

5. The route leaving Narcoosee Rd at Aljay Lake, Intersecting US 192 at US 441. Looks like a proposed relocation of SR 15

Click on each route and it'll give the number.
1. 434
2. 434
3. 425 (proposed)
The first three are shown on https://catalog.archives.gov/id/12007964
4. 600: this one is explicitly described in the 1945 log, but I've never seen any map showing it.
5. 15 (proposed)
