Our own NE2 made this very interesting and helpful map of the old NE interstate routes (click):

It's sometimes a bit hard to tell which number goes with which line.

NE 4 and 30 clearly multiplex. Otherwise, the colored lines go with the numbers. Use angles.

what are the red, unnumbered lines?  they seem primary enough to receive numbers.

Each line is numbered exactly once. The challenge is to find where that number is.

agentsteel53

got it.  makes more sense now.

the only thing I'd do is change the color of either 12 or 10.  they cross, and unless one is very visually keen (or knows where modern state routes 10 and 12 are), they would not notice it.

Was that pun intended?

ha.  I wish it were.  didn't even think about exactly where 10 and 12 cross.

It was a quickie from QGIS. If I cared I'd make something better.

18 is clearly east-west. Why does it get an even number?

Except Maryland pre-1920s. They had only one numbered state road: 1 from Baltimore to Washington.
