The ramp on the right for I-75 NB is not the next following right turn. It's beyond the second signal way off in a distance.  I actually turned right into the second stoplight roadway that IS DEFINITELY NOT A RAMP but a driveway into a tourist trap.  Actually a sprawl road that serves more than Bass Pro now.

I'm guessing the I-75 & US 41 interchange was reconfigured and the ramp got relocated, but the project manager didn't think of checking the area out thoroughly for other signs referencing the old configuration.

Edit: GSV shows the original configuration was a cloverleaf with I-75 and Bass Pro got accessed via a previous frontage road.  Plus a motel stood where the new access road is now aligned.

And no warning whatsoever for the tanker truck that got on at the ramp in the background of the last link...?

Quote from: CtrlAltDel on July 22, 2024, 09:08:02 PMThe rules, for this and everything else regarding clinching, are whatever you want them to be. Some people, including myself, would say you need to cross the border, others don't.

This is the correct answer.

Quote from: Bruce on July 22, 2024, 09:02:15 PMSince I did a fair amount of my clinching during the great Canadian border lockdown of 2020/2021, I count it as long as I get to the last legal u-turn before the border. Way too many time-limited border crossings out west where requiring a full crossing would make it difficult to count.
Quote from: mgk920 on Today at 10:31:29 AMI consider a route to be 'clinched' when I use the last U-turn before the 'point of no return', such as the last local access exits on I-81 and I-87.

I am not actively tracking clinched highways, but if I did, this is probably the guideline I'd follow.

(However, I do track which US-Canada border crossings I've transited, so....)

They probably wanted Interstate 495 to end at another Interstate, which is does at Interstate 195. The remaining portion that is MA 25 probably did not warrant an Interstate designation.

How about Chariots of Fire?  I heard that song constantly back in 1982, but never hear it any longer.

Which is a good thing.
