Quote from: Ted$8roadFan on June 18, 2024, 05:11:55 PMYes, I remember the Roy Roger's at the Charlton rest area. It would be nice to have some variety.

The Roy's I remember was actually in Sturbridge off I-84 Exit 3 (then Exit 1).

I-76 ends here. Should be NJ 42 South Atlantic City on the pull through.

See, even NJDOT thinks I-76 should be extended along the ACE  :bigass:

The arrows used here have a lot to be desired.

Quote from: Bobby5280 on March 15, 2024, 11:24:49 PMI-40 in Checotah. I-44 in Big Cabin would be even better. Some people want I-45 extended to Tulsa.

US-69 does tend to be the bigger deal than US-75 in Oklahoma. That said, the interstate if it is ever done should follow US-75 to Tulsa. More aptly follow US-69 to the Indian Nation Turnpike and follow INT and US-62/75 to Tulsa.

Currently , this route is mostly 4-lane divided highway, but would need a lot of work.



Why to Tulsa? Political reasons?

Off-Topic / Re: RIP Willie Mays
Last post by gonealookin - Today at 11:50:29 AM
Willie was on the first Sports Illustrated wall poster my mom bought me for Christmas when I was 7 or 8.  I only saw him play at the tail end of his career.

Mays was #5 all-time in career WAR at 156.2.  On another site last night we were discussing who's the greatest ballplayer still alive.  Career WAR is a good measure, but the top 3 who are still alive are tainted by PEDs and not in the Hall of Fame.

Babe Ruth is #1 all-time at 182.6 WAR.  Those still alive with at least 100 WAR:

#4 Barry Bonds 162.8 WAR (PEDs, not in the HOF)
#8 Roger Clemens 139.2 WAR (PEDs, not in the HOF)
#16 Alex Rodriguez 117.6 WAR (PEDs, not in the HOF)
#19 Rickey Henderson 111.1 WAR (Hall of Famer)
#24 Mike Schmidt 106.9 WAR (Hall of Famer)
#28 Greg Maddux 106.6 WAR (Hall of Famer)
#29 Albert Pujols 101.4 WAR (eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2028)
#30 Randy Johnson 101.1 WAR (Hall of Famer)

A normal shield assembly for a two route overlap. 

Usually two or more routes reassured are on green guides in NH.

Mountain West / Re: Interstate 11

Now if they could renumber the exits to correspond with Interstate 11's mileage instead of US 95's mileage, then we'd really be in business. Is there a timeline for renumbering the exits yet?

Central States / Re: Proposed US 412 Upgrade

I'd be okay with the L.L Tisdale Parkway in Tulsa becoming OK 342, once future Interstate 42 is designated through Tulsa. However, I do realize that since the Tisdale Parkway has never had a state highway designation, it is unlikely to have one designated in the future.

Quote from: mgk920 on June 16, 2024, 02:19:35 PMI-94 already ends cosigned with I-69 at the Blue Water Bridge, feeding into ON 402.  (fictional-fantasy musing follows) I would sign I-96 up to the Howe Bridge, feeding into ON 401.

Michigan should have the hidden M-401 designation for their side of the border.
I don't see the point or need in that.
I don't either. I mean, if we're truly going to be pedantic about this, MDOT could create a "Gordie Howe International Bridge" route designation with a secret Bus I-75 designation (in the vein of the former Capitol Loop) for its portion of the bridge.

Or maybe we designate it M-9, because naming it for Gordie How wasn't obvious enough. Put up a bunch of route shields for maybe a mile of roadway, and let's see how many people end up in Canada thinking they were still in Michigan because it's a M-highway!

This is assuming a 4 mile gap between I-75 and Hwy 401 is truly some kind of crisis that must be resolved with an official route designation, and that simply being the Gordie Howe International Bridge is somehow insufficient.

But if we're going to post totally useless route designations on a bridge, at least get the cardinal directions right. It's SOUTH to go into Canada, and NORTH to go into the United States. Anything else is simply incorrect.

"[I-96] (or [whatever]) / TO [ON 401] / (controls such as Windsor/Hamilton/Toronto and Canadian national flag image) "?

WIS 13. Starts near Superior and hugs the northern edge of the state. It starts out going north, but is technically considered southbound as it turns south near Red Cliff.
